The efforts by some groups to prevent the construction of mosques could backfire, suggests a recent study that urges the building of Muslim community centers and mosques as a way of preventing Islamic radicalism.
The study, put together by researchers at Duke University and the University of North Carolina and released in January, could shed new light on the recent outbreak of anti-mosque sentiment among some groups, sparked by the controversy over illegal immigration and the construction of a mosque and Muslim community center near Ground Zero in Manhattan.

They build mosques, no one has stopped them.
Ok so with that in mind I guess it is ok for us to resent the countries where Christians are persecuted and churches are not allowed to be built and Christians converts killed for proselytizing?

I think he was actually posting on the double standard of the very little stopping of Mosques in the liberal western world as opposed to the vast blocking of churches in the very closed off eastern world.
I fail to see where he said do back what they are doing to you.

Yea I noticed Parallex has a tendency to be a hot head to religion and sometimes says retarded things. He is smart though, so you'll have to forgive him for his hot hotheadedness.
