The Muslims next door!

Has anyone seen this show about the building of Mosques in our country? I am stunned at how folks would allow an evangelical church like those of the Westboro variety to be built without issues, but deny the Muslim population, which are far more pius than we are, the right to build their places of worship. How rude are we? If the Muslim community were to build a Mosque in our back yard, I'd be the first to welcome them with open arms. I was just curious if we had any Muslim members in our midst?

at one place they were building a church with a dome, the residents just assumed it was a mosque and got all upset, it's insane how the religious christians fear another religion so much, but then they think it is absurd that atheists see any issues with christianity

Noticed that too huh?

I'm not so sure they fear other religions as much as they're intolerant of all but their own belief.

Sorry folks but this is not the USA of Baptist Thought.

I grew up believing in tolerance but I've grown suspicious of any religions wanting special treatment from governments. This is a country of Western culture so while one may worship as they please people still need to adapt to the country THEY CHOSE to adopt.

some estimates say millions of people died during the crusades......

religion is dangerous, if americans really did base their life around religion and lived in such poor economic situations we would be the same, It's a good thing most american christians are only "just following the pack" or "just in case" christians so we don't have the level of extremism

I guess I regard it as taking a man at his word. After the first attempt on the WTC Binny declared war on us. Acting like it was a rerun of "The Mouse that Roared" we ignored him.

Sept. 11th woke everyone up and someone noticed we'd already received his Declaration of War. Where is the confusion here? Game on!

We know the money and the most radical sect of Islam (Wahabi) comes from Saudi Arabia (like Binny).

Mucking about Afghanistan was never going to locate Binny since we screwed up Toraborra.

Soooo,.......making pro-Christian comments and going into a particular building makes one a Christian?

Hmmmm,...then, if I go into a gay bar and say there is no God, then I'll be a gay atheist?

Interesting
