Because if you want to build a secret safehouse for your terrorist activities, it's best to build it amongst the most paranoid people.

To be fair, they're trying to build the mosque less than 10 miles (as the crow flies) from Ground Zero.

To be fair, one doesn't really have a connection with the other outside of what these reactionary idiots would like us to believe.

Until Islamic religious leaders show us some signs that they are fighting against terrorism, instead of encouraging it, no mosques should be allowed to be built anywhere.

I'm all for religious freedom, but that shouldn't involve butchering people, then whining because somebody doesn't want you in their neighborhood.

It was always about Islamophobia.

What a strange country. These white guys in this picture are using a spanish phrase to show anger at a religion they consider foreign.

"If they build a mosque there, I'm going to bomb the mosque ... I will give them a lot of trouble. They're not going to stay here alive,"

Sounds like someone who hates terrorism.

The terrorists have won. No, really. Apart from Osama's fit of pique, the rationale for risking the attack on the WTC was to stir up a war between Islam and the Christian west. Al Qaeda understands the mentality of dumb reactionaries all too well.

Until Christian leaders show us some signs that they are fighting against extremist Christians, Christian terrorists, and the Westboro Baptist Church, instead of encouraging them, no churches should be allowed to be built anywhere.

Same equivalence is the same.

Oddly enough I feel the same way about farking little children, so I want all the Catholic Churches closed around me. Oh, and killing doctors, so there go all the Fundamentalist Churches around me. Oh, and giving babies herpes by sucking the blood off their freshly circumcised penis, so get rid of the Jewish Temples. I got nothing for the Buddhist temples...no, wait, I don't people who set themselves on fire...

You know what, when ever someone prefaces their statement with "I am all for religious freedom, but" I always know something egregiously stupid is about to follow.

FTA: He explained to the Brooklyn Daily that his "opposition isn't to who is building it, but to what is being built."

Ah, yes the time honored "Love the sinner but hate the sin" that all Judeo-Christian bigots hide behind when they realize their actual opinions would make them look like the wastes of skin that they really are.

Just wondering how this compares to Kentucky in terms of mocking the ignorant.

What is that? Like, just under 60,000 Mohammeds?
 
2012-07-26 04:28:11 PM  
It seems to me that rather than address their concerns on a piecemeal basis, these mosque opponents need to find a final solution to this conflict.

I am sure that is what most of them are looking for anyway.

I'm struggling to find what part of this is "fair?" Are we going to measure and weigh the belief system of every disaster area and then put a protective bubble around it for X number of miles so that no allegedly diametrically opposed belief systems can move in too close to said disaster site? Just curious.

Nobody believed the protestors when they claimed it so I guess there's that.

In June of that year, 50 mosque opponents turned out to protest the annual Children of Abraham Peace Walk, which brings together Jews, Muslims and Christians in a show of unity.

There just aren't words for this.

Say what you want about Muslim extremists in America, they at least have the decency to not be all up your face and on your block about it (unlike a certain other Abrahmaic religion).

After reading your profile, I realized that. :) HOWEVER, the fact that it was believable is a bit disturbing.

Also, can I get a what what for using the word, "diametrically?" Man, that felt good. Also, stealing your glittery USA gif okthx.
