Any Loonwatchers Near Steubenville, Ohio? Robert Spencer to Speak at Franciscan University

Anti-Muslim activist Robert Spencer is expected to speak at the Franciscan University on Tuesday, November 8th at 7 pm. Admission is free and there will be a question and answer session. If any loonwatchers live in the area or can make the drive it would be great.

Franciscan University will be a hostile environment, so it will be like walking into the lion’s den. The universities supporters believe they are in a kulturkampf with the Obama administration, and Spencer has already spoken to an approving crowd in the past where he delivered a triumphalist message in militaristic tones.

Ultimately it is only Jesus Christ that can fight against this [Islam]~Robert Spencer

Here is the advert from Franciscan University:

STEUBENVILLE, OH—Robert Spencer, the internationally known founder of Jihad Watch, will speak at Franciscan University of Steubenville on Tuesday, November 8, at 7:00 p.m. on the topic “Islam’s View of Christianity: Why It Matters.” The talk, which will take place in the Tony and Nina Gentile Gallery of the J.C. Williams Center, is free and open to the public.

Spencer will speak on the peculiar understanding of Christianity contained in the founding texts of Islam, how that view has shaped Islamic/Christian interactions down to the present day, and what we as Catholics and Christians can do in the face of this resurgent religion.

Spencer has studied Islamic theology, law, and history for over three decades. He currently serves as the director of Jihad Watch, a program of the David Horowitz Freedom Center. Spencer has led seminars on Islam and jihad for the United States Central Command, United States Army Command and General Staff College, the FBI, the Joint Terrorism Task Force, and the U.S. intelligence community.

He is the author of 10 books, including Religion of Peace? Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn’t, a refutation of moral equivalence and call for all the beneficiaries and heirs of Judeo-Christian Western civilization, whatever their own religious or philosophical perspective may be, to defend it from the global jihad.  He is coauthor, with Daniel Ali, of Inside Islam: A Guide for Catholics, and editor of the essay collection The Myth of Islamic Tolerance: How Islamic Law Treats Non-Muslims.

His articles on Islam and other topics have appeared in a wide array of newspapers and Web sites.

Spencer has appeared on the BBC, ABC News, CNN, FoxNews, PBS, and many other media outlets as well as on numerous radio programs including Vatican Radio.

Following his talk, Spencer will answer questions from the audience.  For more on Spencer at Franciscan University, watch a clip from his remarks at this summer’s Defending the Faith Conference.

If any loonwatchers go and record Spencer and or would like to submit a piece about their experience we will run the article with all due credit. Let us know if anyone is interested. Feel free to comment below or email us

    Cartoon Porkkk……. I’m sure you know that the Prophet Muhammad(saws) have 1,671,198,000 billion followers and counting. Less than 50 to 100yrs from now, Islam, the religion Prophet Muhammad first preached 1500yrs ago, will be the number 1 religion of the world, as there are more and more people from your own tradition who are abandoning it, and coming into his by reading the Book he brought and converting to the message it contains: That There is no god but Allah(God), The One and Only with no partner(s) nor son.

    And who are anti-semite islamophobe Spencer followers?? Maybe few dozens(or less) including you?? LOL…And for the way he’s getting exposed for his hate and lies, he wont be able to count even on his few dozen(or less) hate-based fans like you. Tolal abandonment for hate-face spencer is near. When one hate’s innocents like he does, the only end for that its a total rejection and a garbage pin for his hate. Dont forget where Hitler and his proxies ended up.

  • Christian-friend

    you bore me, cartoon. Be more creative.

  • @ Christian-friend: You sound more like Mohammad bin Abdulla with all his mental problems than Rober Spencer who is quite normal.His books have more wisdom than your Quran.Read them first then open your TRAP.You stink like Khushboo to me!!!

  • ahmed

    @ Christian-Friend

    You sum up Robert Spencer perfectly.

    Top description friend 😀

  • ahmed

    @ BigT89

    Oops forgot. Yeah he IS an anti-Semite since Arabs are Semitic.

    Kinda pointless to single out Arabs as anti-semite when these people are racist towards Arabs especially Khaligi Arabs like Emiratis and Saudis.

    I mean these loons who use the stupid ‘towelhead’ terms! Annoys me so much!

  • You all seem to be a bunch of COWARDS.You can only write on loon watch.May your brains also grow with your bodies!!!

    I just read the following on Wikipedia. Anyone who does attend, please be careful.

    “Political corruption

    Steubenville has had a reputation for political corruption. The Department of Justice alleged that the city and the police force had subjected numerous individuals to “excessive force, false arrests, charges, and reports” and had engaged in practices regarding “improper stops, searches, and seizures.” The report from the Department also states that excessive force was levied against individuals who witnessed incidents of police misconduct, and against those who were known critics of the city and its police force. Those individuals were also falsely detained if the city and the police agreed that they were “likely to complain of abuse.” It also stated that the officers involved also falsified reports and tampered with official police recorders so that “misconduct would not be recorded.” [6][7]
    Over a period of 20 years the city lost, or settled out of court, 48 civil rights lawsuits involving its police force. The city paid out more than $800,000, $400,000 of which was between 1990 and 1996. As a result the city’s police force earned the dubious distinction of being the second city in the nation to sign a consent decree with the federal government due to an excessive number of civil rights lawsuits. The decree signed on September 4, 1997 under the “pattern or practice” provision. Under this agreement, the city agreed to improve the training of its police officers, implement new guidelines and procedures, establish an internal affairs unit, and establish an “early warning system.”

    “Spencer seriously sound exactly like an anti-Semite Nazi”

    Robert Spencer don’t “sound like” an anti-Semite, he IS an anti-Semite when he hate-speak of Arabs, and he IS a Born-Again Nazi when he hate-speak of Muslims in general.

  • TheBigT89

    @ ahmed
    well technically you can say he is antisemitic because of his hatred of Arabs (the majority of whom are Semite, such as my self)

  • ahmed

    I cant believe these ‘universities’ host these hate-machines.

    Spencer seriously sounds exactly like an anti-Semite Nazi!

  • Christian-friend

    I am Robert Spencer, I am really a mental patient with mental retardation and my daddy, a hardcore Zionist, teached me to hate people that never done nothing bad to me. I enjoy being a hypocrite too

  • Baloney

    Yeah, Danios. Go get’em, tiger.

  • Robert Spinster

    Danios, you really do need to head over there to face Spencer…

  • Ahmed

    Could it not be dangerous for someone who publicly humiliates Spencer? What is some vigilante attacks that individual? Will there be adequate security at the university?

  • Garibaldi

    Any takers in this region?

  • Robert Spinster

    I am going to contact CAIR and Franciscan University about this problem. Other LoonWatchers should do likewise.

  • Danios, can’t you head there?

    Nothing would throw Spencer of than you challenging him face to face. He is terrified of you, O Lord Voldermart, (of He Who Should Not Be Named fame)

  • Al

    I’d like to go, and I would, except for the fact that my brain would hemorrhage out my ears and eyes from seeing/hearing that troll string words together.

  • mindy1

    Why are people taking him seriously???

  • corey

    “a furnace of love” um wow if I was trying to describe the love a divine being has for its creation I wouldnt go on about it being a furnace it sounds kinda morbid when you think about it.
