Islam has many good points, as does Christianity and Buddhism. However, to be fair, the message should not be preaching but sounds like bells. The
call to prayer is not only preaching, it is denouncing the other "gods" of the community. I do not believe that Americans will sit idly by to let
inflammatory remarks be broadcast in their hearing repeatedly every day, particularly if the sound is made in a language they understand, or if they
are aware of the translation of the call to prayer. In my neighborhood, they don't have bells from Christian churches, and they won't allow a
minaret with a loudspeaker, I guarantee you.
The constant repetition of a belief, whether it is true or a lie, will become a belief for others. Like Hitler said, something like, tell a big
enough lie enough times and people will believe it is the truth.
Why do you think they do it? They have a watch on their wrist today. It's not 1500. It's 2009. There is no need for a call to prayer that
ridicules the Christian God. Do like the Christians, go to church by looking at your watch. When you are inside the compound, sing what you like.
And I'm really tired of people using the argument about fear. It's the same argument used by the homosexual movement. If you don't like it, you
must be homophobic. Get real. If I don't like it, it's not because I am afraid of it. I don't like eggplant, either. Last time I checked, I
wasn't scared of eggplant. Next, they'll say we're Islamophobic. I say, let's have some rational discussion, not stupid comments like "fear"
of Islam. Unless they're converting people with scimitars again, I don't think so...
