The Imam involved with this project (the one who suggests the US is responsible for the 9/11 attacks because of it's policy) is not advocating "peaceful" worship. He is justifying murderous acts. The drama of declaring that we are "going against everything this country is founded on" is just that, drama. We have the the right to our beliefs. If other countries don't agree with them or like them, that's okay, they don't have to. It doesn't give them the right hijack our planes and kill our citizens. If you want to stand on principle, try compassion for families who lost people in those attacks. The site they are attempting to put the mosque on is a thinly veiled attemt at a declaration of victory. There is no compassion in that, regardless of how much good they are claiming will come from the proposed center.
Your strong vocabulary must be a great asset to you. We won't remain a free country if we allow extremists to kill people, knock down other people's property, and then build a monument to themselves.
Your words, not mine. Vengeance is not the realm of people - The Lord has a claim laid upon it. The Lord does not bless those who advocate and condone mass murder. When peaceful Muslims will call out and oppose Muslims who advocate the murder of those who disagree with them, then the Lord will smile on all of us.
Thanks for posting the ad as well. By the way, no major differences? - "no major interpretive or ideological distinctions" ?? Is that an admission that the beliefs of the Muslims who committed the acts of 9/11 are held by all Muslims?
I Love it - it depicts the absurdity of even considering putting a mosque on that site. Three cheers to to the designer of the ad!
