Such a controversy lately about the construction of new Mosques... Many Americans don't want Mosques in their community. Many believe Mosques are often fronts for terrorism (um, sorry, Man
Caused Disasters, lol). What say you?

    When I walk past a Baptist church I don't worry that somebody with a death wish is in the baptisty making a bomb, or the preacher is plotting to blow up First Methodist down the street. No mosques until these idiots stop acting like barbarians. bomb preacher plotting blow methodist street mosques idiots acting barbarians

    whose god though? seeing the founding fathers wanted all to be able to practice and follow their religion.

    If you take the time to read the writings of our founding fathers, you will see that they were prolific writers and left no doubt to which god they were following nor their reasons why. They followed the Bible and founded the principles of this country on Christianity. They prayed earnestly to make the right decisions and for the success of this country. They prayed to God, not Allah nor any other god.

    I do not profess to be a Bible scholar, since I fall seriously short in that area. You brought up the intentions of the founding fathers, and what I posted is correct. Try reading some of David Barton's findings. He has read what our founding fathers left behind as they documented what they were accomplishing. You might try his site, Wallbuilders.com. It's very enlightning. I was able to see him speak and he is awesome!

    Do you have difficulty reading or what??? I have stated why I said it. Go read the documents left by those founding fathers or go to David Barton's website. He is highly respected in his research, and he is able to put it where you might be able to understand. End of conversation on my part...I'm so done with you.

    and yet it is a different religion and suecoop said that the founding fathers did not support any other then christianity. She also forgot that the old testament is nothing but jewish teachings. Also remember that jesus was a jew.

    Nope didn't forget. I'm quite aware of what the Old Testament is, but I am also aware that th Holy Bible that Christians use contains both the Old Testament and the New Testament and it is the same God. According to the documentation left behind, the founding fathers felt that these principles were strong enough to guide them and the formation of our country. I am not going to keep beating a dead horse with you.....

    There is only one God. Look, you know as well as I that this is a very difficult issue. I must say, whatever will be will be. I will try to promote my ideals, and you will try to promote your ideals. If I think your ideals are becoming too overbearing for me, I will either have to live with it, or do something about it. When I see hundreds of thousands of Iranians in the streets, ranting and chanting to destroy America, I think of only a couple of things. First, I wonder what in the world we are doing to them that makes them hate us so much. Second, I wonder why we don't just nuke them of the face of the earth. Then I look at America, and see how we interfere in their affairs, how godless we are becoming as a nation, and understand that they are justified in whatever they say and do. Then I understand that we are what we are, and are justified in doing whatever we have to do to prevent our destruction at their hands. There are many hard choices. The trick is to make your choice, and live with it, or die with it, and pray to God for mercy, and hope you made the right choice.

    Tell me which god is the only real god. Is the same god for all religions but just different names, or do all relgions have different gods. then tell me which relgion is the true one. The muslims hate us because of idiots that hate them. The hate is nothing based on relgious discrimination nothing more.

    I admit, I am not as forgiving as Christ. I know I ought to be, and I wish I were. I am considering the statement I made. You know Jesus said that if someone strikes you in the face, to turn to him the other. I believe He was right, and that is the better thing to do. I can hope that I would do that. But don't be surprised if instead I cut off his head.
  • LilMissManners 2010/07/24 06:10:06
    Yes. Let them build their Mosques! Religious Freedom and such...
    LilMissManners
    To clarify my yes... I do agree overall that religious freedom should prevail and people of the many religions should be able to build whatever Mosque, Synagogue, Temple, or church that they wish on the land in which they buy. With that said, however, I don't no support the mosque being built by ground zero for the obvious reasons. The Muslim's I have known have always talked about compassion, respect, love, etc as being a part of their belief system. I don't see how anyone could find having a Mosque at the site where so many people lost their lives in the "name of Allah" compassionate or loving. I would think that true Muslim's would be just as appalled at the idea. Additionally, from what I understand (unless new information has been released) the mosque is being funded by a unidentified foreign source who has gone WAYYYYY out of their way to stay anonymous. If the funding is being done with good and peaceful intentions then why hide?!? This should make any AMERICAN in spite of their religion totally against the idea!

    I'm a Christian who tries to follow the teaching of Jesus. And I don't think He ever said it's okay to generalize people. Yes, I realize there are violent Muslim extremists, and, yes, I understand the animosity towards the Islam faith. I'll even admit that they've made questionable decisions in the past (i.e. not immediately apologizing for the actions of the radicals who executed 9/11). But the Catholic church has done some pretty screwed up things in the past, and yet I don't see anybody rallying to stop them from building churches in their towns. Besides, I'm an anarchist; the less unnecessary laws, the better.

    Well, I do remember the last time high-ranking members of the Roman Catholic church covered for pedophiles abusing their positions of religious authority. It happened quite recently, if I remember correctly.

    And what about how they tortured and killed many fellow Christians during the Protestant Reformation?

    Gee, go right to recent history, huh? The Reformation, for the love of Jesus!

    And trust me, the Catholic Church is suffering for the pedophiles - there has been about 1/2 the Churches shutdown in the last 10 years.

    But that is a little different from SAWING SOMEONEs HEAD OFF ON TV, TO SCREAMING MOBS.

    I don't hate religion. It's much the opposite. My faith has gotten me through some really rough times in my life. What bothers me about Islam is it's intolerance for non-Islamic people and the tendancy to turn the collective head as terrorists move among them. Just here in the area, we have people who were collecting and sending money for one of the terrorist organizations and it seems that no one minded at the particular mosquw to which they were affiliated with. I just know that if in my congregation there was a loon or two who wanted to wipe out others because they didn't believe the same way, I would be the first to move to have them removed and/or exposed. This could be because of their religious or political stance. We can't tolerate those people among us....it drags us all down when we turn our heads as if we don't notice.

    As far as being a lib...maybe you should check my profile and other posts. I am NOT a lib!

I'm not calling all muslims evil, I'm just saying that after all the pain and lost lives the religion's followers and the barbaric laws their Qur'an allows/suggests, they can keep their Mosques in their own uncivil nation.
