I honestly have taken your thread to imply that you are an ignorant, middle-aged white male with limited intercultural exposure. Mosque does not equal
terrorists. Islam does not equate to hostility or evil. I would be willing to bet that anyone seriously objecting the construction of a Mosque near
ground zero knows almost nothing about Islam, Muslims or the world as a whole.
I was raised, baptized and confirmed as a Christian, but I've got love for all followers of the book. I honestly wouldn't even consider myself a
true Christian these days, as my religious beliefs don't necessarily allign with any mainstream religion these days.
If you ever go to an Arab nation, I bet you would be suprised by the respect and love present for all religions. You probably believe they are all
murdering, fundamentalist, right-wing nut jobs, but the reality is that the U.S. is home to more fringe lunatic religious whackos then all of the
The question you leave us with "...fine, but why so close to ground zero?"
is completely artarded. Do you know how many Christians have gone off the deep end and killed people? Evangelist jerk-offs in W.VA. trying to poison
water supplies to bring the second coming quicker.....just one example. Why don't we raise the same question when new Churches are being built? Oh
yeah....ignorance, that's why.
