The 'Ground Zero Mosque'

Postby Shuggy » Thu Aug 26, 2010 11:07 am

So, what do people think about the 'mosque' which is actually an Islamic Community Centre with a 'prayer room', which isn't actually being built AT Ground Zero?

I think its typical knee-jerk anti-Islam bigotry at its worst.

I completely and unreservedly agree with you.

The opponents of this Community Centre are calling it a 'Muslim Mosque', simply because of the symbolic connotations those words have. 'Muslim' is a religious label, and it was Muslim Extremist Terrorists that carried out the WTC bombings, and a 'mosque' is obviously a religious icon. Unfortunately, the word 'Muslim' has unavoidably sinister connotations in the minds of many of the American people since 9/11. By labelling the Community Centre in such a way, it's opponents are obviously trying to tug on the emotions and fears of the people.

Thats like saying that you cant rebuild a Christian church in Waco Texas because of that Christian David Koresh. This whole thing really sticks a turd in the mouth of the 'freedom of religion' aspect of the U.S. Constitution.

Anyway, the 'flat-Earth wing of the Republican party has tagged Obama as a Muslim as well. The total death of common sense it seems.

Similar to an example I used in reply on another site; the Omagh bombing in Northern Ireland was carried out by Catholic Irish Republican terrorists; 28 men, women (2 pregnant), and children (some babies) were killed. Should all existing and future Catholic churches and activities in and around Omagh town centre be banned? Unthinkable.

Also, does this mean that any location (shopping mall, airport, etc) that has a designated 'prayer room' should now be known as a 'church'?
