Everyone in America is entitled to an opinion, and to voice it, to even voice it poorly.
Perhaps the saddest thing is that desire of people to simply choose one side or another no matter how rigid it’s agenda or circumspect it’s
If you don’t join one side of the debate and try not to take sides, the people you wouldn’t join on that one side automatically assign you to the
It’s is as, they imagine these constitutional issues of freedom of religion can be decided in public forums, protests and debates.
They can’t, they can only be decided on the legislative level.
While representatives sometimes do consider the public debate and mood, recent history has shown that is typically not the case.
Yet all should be aware even if there was a movement to amend the constitution at this point to start regulating religion, what is used today against
Islam might be then used tomorrow against your religion, or you for not having a religion.
I think personally if people really wanted to limit these things wisely that it should be done the same way the Nuclear Reduction Talks are held.
If you want a moratorium on new Muslim Mosques, then all other religions should have a moratorium placed on the building of new facilities too.
If you want to start shutting down Mosques, then all other denominations should equally be required to make a similarly negotiated reduction in their
I can support nothing that is not equal and fair and across the board and applicable to everyone.
America is all about equality.
Sadly that means too many people, if I am not for shutting down the Mosque, that I am on that other side, that I am anti-Christian, anti-America, a
Muslim apologist, and terrorist sympathizer.
Isn’t it ironic that the people who are so prone to do that, are in fact trying to terrorize those who won’t aide them in being prejudicial to an
entire religion and all the people that follow it?
That they wish to terrorize the more reasonable and constitution loving and fair minded amongst us, through peer pressure, slander and baseless
And yet amazingly these people who are so inclined to do this, can’t fathom why a select few in any society, and religion, any race, any movement
would turn to terrorism?
While all the while they want to terrorize others into adopting views that are so prejudicial and so detrimental to our way of life that they
ultimately end up diminishing us all, and sadly already have.
Having an opinion is great, voicing it is fine, but no matter who imagines what, your opinion is all about you, not about the world you wish to define
in such limiting and rigid ways.
