- United States
- I despise the left wing liberal attempts to change America. I support FREEDOM, freedom of speech, right to bear arms, religious freedom and protecting the rights of Americans, including the unborn. Close the border, round up illegals and send them home. Welcome them back with a green card. I believe in preserving the visions of our founding fathers which did not include Socialism or Sharia Law. This IS STILL America.....at least for now.

MOSQUE OR VICTORY MONUMENT?
I remember 9/11 as if it were yesterday. I remember when I realized this was an attack on our country, I left my job immediately and picked up my baby from daycare. She was four months old to the day. I remember driving home...she was in the back seat...and I felt like she was miles from me. There were still planes missing....and I had a 45 mile drive home. I was some 1000 miles away from NYC but I was terrorized. I wanted my baby in my arms...I wanted to be home. I kept looking at the sky.....I was terrified.
My heart breaks for everyone who was killed that day. The parents on the planes with children in their laps that they could not protect. They knew they were going to die and they could not protect their children. Can you just imagine the despair? The people trapped in the top floors of the WTC buildings who could not escape. They knew they were going to die.
I have really been thinking about the Mosque issue at ground zero. In fact, I have been thinking about it so much that I delayed writing about it.
At first glance it seems an outrage. How can this be allowed? Why would they do that? Why there? Sure brings a lot of question and anger.
I believe in freedom of religion. I believe that if they want to build a mosque, they can and should. The same goes for a church or synagogue.....under normal circumstances. In this situation...it is an outrage.
First of all this is a business district, not a community where people live. Then you have the reality that ground zero only exists because of radical Muslims who attacked America and Americans on our own soil. There was only one church destroyed as a result of the 9/11 attacks, St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, and they have not been allowed to rebuild. It gets almost zero attention in the media. Kinda interesting, huh? Mosque, yes. Church, no.
What bothers me is that they lack the sensitivity to the location and they chose the date of September 11, 2011, the ten year anniversary of 9/11, for its dedication ceremony. Excuse me? That was enough for me. This is not an ordinary mosque. This is a victory monument by radial Muslims hell bent on having Islam dominate America. Oh that could never happen in America, or could it? This is a slap in the face to every 9/11 survivor, victim, family members of those who died and every American.
In reality, this is legally a local issue for NYC, however, we have had the President intervene and now Nancy Pelosi is calling for a probe into the opposition of the building of the mosque and those questioning how it is being funded. Hello, Nancy Pelosi....I am in opposition to this mosque and I question how it is being funded. Please add me to your probe list.
Next we have Hamas demanding this mosque be built. Umm...who the hell are they to demand anything on American soil?
I want to see a church in Tehran. Nothing to big...just 13 stories...right in the heart of their business district. Maybe another in Saudi Arabia.....and every other Islamic country on the face this earth.
For a group who claims to seek better relations between the Islamic community and the rest of America, where is their sensitivity? Why would they select this location and the date of 9/11 to dedicate the mosque? I will tell you why. They are doing it because they want to inflame the heart of America. Literally. They are getting their wish.
There are questionable Muslims involved in the efforts to build this mosque. This mosque is more than just a mosque...it is going to serve as a location to teach Sharia law. WHAT?? Ahh....you know..Sharia law....where it is their religious LAW to marry little girls and have sex with them, rape your wife, kill homosexuals and stone rape victims to death. Yes, let's teach Sharia law....but not rebuild a church...no way....definitely not a church.
People, it is time to wake up. Our country is falling apart from within. Our government is taking us down and radical Muslims are taking us down using the freedom in America to do it. Are we going to just let this happen? I think not...but you gotta wake up now...because it may already be too late. Sharia is already being upheld in American courtrooms. Government is overstepping its bounds. Freedoms are vanishing right before our very eyes.
Toto, I don't think we're in America anymore!
I think we have been "politically corrected" to death. It just annoys me to no end. That being said, building this mosque at ground zero....is not "politically correct".
Call me Islamaphobic if you like....but.....It's not Islamaphobia when they REALLY ARE trying to kill you.
