OK, this will be short, not very sweet and to the point. Why the hell are people bitching and moaning about a mosque being built “too near” to Ground Zero? Oh, wait, that’s right, they are whining about it because they are ____________(insert derogatory comment here.)
That’s correct. If you have an issue with a mosque being built at Ground Zero, you are at the very least ignorant, and quite possibly a complete and total moron.
Islam is, for the most part, one of the most peaceful religions on the planet. More death, suffering and terrorism have been perpetrated in the name of Christianity than have ever occurred in the name of Islam. It comes as no surprise that Western culture has an issue with Islam, since we have become so incredibly corrupt as a society. The majority of the US claims to be Christian, yet lives and treats others as heathens. Hmmmm…moving on.
The World Trade Center wasn’t attacked my Islam, but by Islamic extremists. In almost all instances, good is good only in moderation. Taking a good thing to an extreme can turn that good thing evil, or at least have an evil effect. So it is with Islam. Islam, overall, is a good thing. Extremists twist beliefs to suit their evil purposes, leveraging programming and brainwashing techniques to recruit weak-minded idiots to their cause.
The majority of Islamic people are peaceful, while a small, extreme minority support the lesser Jihad, or warfare against perceived threats to the beliefs of Islam. Majority good, small minority bad…got it?
Personally, I’m Christian, and I believe strongly in Freedom of Religion, and anyone who thinks there shouldn’t be a mosque near ground zero most certainly doesn’t support that freedom, and has strayed far from the precepts of Christianity and the values of charity and tolerance.
The people who died in the towers represented a variety of religions, Islam included, and they deserve to be represented just as much as any Christian, Hindi, Buddhist, Atheist, Sikh, etc.
So, to the whining morons out there…stop being weak-minded sheep who follow wherever biased bigots and rabble-rousing media lead you! Study the issue and try supporting an intelligent cause for a change 🙂
