“I clearly think Christianity is better, which is why I practice it, but that is not the reason I am against the masque (sic) at Ground Zero. I am against it because it would be a thorn in the eye of anyone who lost a loved one on 9-11.”
I dig Karen. Always have…even though she is a raging Republican. No, not a raging conservative, a raging, right wing Republican.
Someone who follows lock step with FOX News, Rushbo, and Sean Hannity.
I think Karen, my ol’ pal Uncle Charlie, and others of their political ilk, have lost their minds…especially when it comes to this “mosque” controversy in NYC.
Republicans like these two, and there are more than a handful, believe in America Uber Alles. They believe in Christianity Uber Alles. They “believe” in the Constitution Uber Alles.
They don’t follow all of those tenets, but two out of three ain’t bad.
I find it ironic that Karen, who is a lawyer by education, yet evidently is less than that by practice, is against the building of a mosque near the former World Trade Center buildings..
She can utter all the anti-Muslim crap she wants, but the law says that if zoning approves, the house, or in this case, the “mosque” shall stand.
Karen, and other Americans can say they will “hurt” if a mosque is built on this “sacred” or “hallowed” ground, but really, you need to get over your religious bigotry.
You need to get over yourselves and your unfounded agony and treatment of one of the world’s oldest religions.
Say what you want about Islam, it is no less believable than Christianity or Judaism. Seriously…
A kid born because an invisible man impregnated a woman? A candle burning for eight crazy days because an invisible man made it so? Gimme a break.
I can’t stand all of the furor over the differing beliefs. I hate it!! But I do know one thing…
One of the cornerstones of this country was that it was built to allow the free, unfettered, practice of religion.
Some Muslims want to build a community center and mosque near the site of the World Trade Center attack. So?
Some “Americans” say, “No way, Muslims are evil!! They should not be allowed to build a place of the Devil’s worship.”
To those nay sayers, I say…
How about this? We’ll build a Catholic Church, a Jewish Temple, and an expansive Evangelical parsonage on the site, and all will be right with God.
Of course, if we do that, we are also doing another thing that may be second only to our love of “the one true God”
That one thing being, peeing and shitting all over our Constitution.
It’s ironic that Tea Baggers and their right wing ilk are behind this movement to stop the building of this Muslim center and mosque, ’cause let me tell ya…
If Jefferson were alive today, he would say to them, “Are you morons fucking crazy?”
Of course then he would say, “Hey Matt-Man? Know any hot, black chicks in the ’hood?”
