I'm in ur mosque eatin' ur baconz.

This is the 21st century. Surely the bacon taboo could die a quiet death without too much fuss.

ROFL!!!

Mannnn Im getting hungry! ! ! ! !

Ok, found this

Pig meat, in all its wonderful variations—pancetta, lardo, speck, coppa, and prosciutto to name just a few—is haram (forbidden) in Islam. The Quran (6:145) states: “[Prophet], say, ‘In all that has been revealed to me, I find nothing forbidden for people to eat, except for carrion, flowing blood, pig’s meat—it is loathsome—or a sinful offering over which any name other than God’s has been invoked.’”

Good to know cannibalism is acceptable.

He slashed at the mosque? What does that even mean? He left three pounds of bacon? Oh no!! Not evil bacon!!

What a non story. Yes. Some people don't like religion, especially that religion. There are always going to be people that express their distaste in unusual or artistic (remember the Piss Christ "art" display?) ways.

At least he didn't strap a bomb on some 9-year old kid and blow him up. Bacon? Sheesh!

It's not Muslims that aren't wanted, it's terrorists and extremists that aren't.

Yes, we get it. Haha. Really funny.

The next off topic post gets handed a post ban. Get on topic and stay there.

Do not reply to this post.

If they haven't caught the person how do you know he wasn't Muslim? It's a safe assumption but you don't know for sure.

Don't like the machete part but bacon on the door step is funny, outside the realms of PC.

*snip*


I don't know.

And I stated in the OP how it *could* be a Muslim. Of course, that is the first excuse some people run to ("Oh, I bet it was one of their own trying to start something and blame it on others,").

Possible, but unlikely IMO.

The place was mildly vandalized, so what could be gained being self-perpetuated other than to gain attention and cry victim?

Seem more likely a non-Muslim did it, imo.

It might be a non-story but it's a piece of the larger picture of hate and intolerance that is increasing in this country, and on ATS, which is evident by the number of posts that have been removed on the first two pages alone.

Therefore, it is important.

What would a Muslim gain from this when it is obvious that it will just be ignored anyway?

You do not see many people claiming this sort of thing when it is the other way round do you?

NON STORY: One that does not fit the current political agenda and the general feelings of the masses.

This would be like getting upset at people that didn't want Japanese in America after they attacked us in Pearl Harbor.



And that was also wrong, the way Japanese were treated..AND PUT IN CAMPS.

Smh.

Getting upset is one thing. Acting—or passing legislation—on it is completely different.

Not a reasonable solution in either case.
