On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/15/20), Hank brings up an article he read this week, titled “Harris’ Ties to Leading Anti-Israel Group Draws Scrutiny.” This reminded Hank of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s address to the Million Muslim Votes Summit, an event hosted by Emgage, an organization founded and led by the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, including Emgage’s current Co-Chairperson Khurrum Wahid, a former legal advisor to the Hamas-linked radical Muslim organization Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). During his address, Biden lauds Islam as “one of the great confessional faiths” and “wish[es] we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith.” As noted in the article, Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris seems enamored with Islam as well. In fact, she has gone out of her way to laud Islam, most notably CAIR, writing in a personal letter to the organization, “Please accept my gratitude and admiration for your tireless work to promote peace, justice, and mutual understanding.” For Harris to say that CAIR promotes “peace, justice, and mutual understanding” is what is referred to in Islam as taqiyya—religious dissimulation. Although CAIR is notorious for its practice of taqiyya, many U.S. politicians like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Talib, have no problem aligning with a group that supports provocative tactics and the terrorism that flow from such tactics. If there is a glimmer of optimism in all of this, it is the hopeful possibility that there may be millions of devout Muslims who could not so much as imagine trodding the path of Taqiyya. In concert with multitudes of non-Muslims, devotees likely regard the religious dissimilation tactics of Biden, Harris, and CAIR to be cringeworthy at best.

Hank also answers the following questions:
- What is the proper posture for prayer?
- I’ve heard a lot about Obama’s views towards Israel and things of that nature, but haven’t heard many pastors bring up Trump’s views towards minorities. What are your thoughts on this?
