I say distant because I don’t follow either faith. But I am not blind to the obvious.  So lets talk about this planned Islamic Mega Mosque being planned at ground zero. Pushing the opposition is self-described conservative blogger Pamela Geller. When I first started looking into this I thought it was a joke. But alas it is true. A group called Cordoba is planning the project as I write. Well lets clear up two misconceptions, One the mega mosque will be a community center, more than mosque, and two it’s not being built at ground zero, its being built 2 blocks away, given the average New York city block is about 264 feet, the mosque will be about 528 feet, so whats the serious problem here? I thought I would catch up with the other side and find out what their objections were? I started at the primary source Pamela Geller’s blog. Look I tried to make some sense out of this from both vantage points and it is clear, in her own words Pamela Geller simply does not like Muslims. Here’s the thing, Miss Geller by her own admission after 9/11 began to immerse herself to gain full understanding, of Islam, Jihad, and terror. Here lies the whole problem, Miss Geller never set out to learn about Islam, she set out to destroy it. let me give you a little tip, when a person opens an argument with the statement I’m not racist, a very racist comment will always follow. The proof is evident, Miss Geller, and all those people who spoke out against this mosque spoke out in hatred and intolerance.  How many times have we heard the argument, Christians could never get away with something like this in Muslim Countries? While it is for the most part a true statement, let me just say this. This is not one of those Countries, this is America, We are not a Christian Nation, we are a nation of Religious Freedom. The constitution guarantee’s that religious freedom. And to deny that Religious freedom to anyone, and in the next breath have audacity to call the President a Socialist. Well if Obama is a socialist, I would rather live under his kind of socialism, that Pamela’s Geller’s Brand of Nazism. What’s next Pam Japanese style internment camps for all non Christians? But the problem doesn’t lie with Pam Geller alone. A great many conservative Christians can not hide their open seething hatred for all Muslims, and this is kinda funny, and here’s why. The conservative will always resort to pointing out the evils of Islam, meaning the 3% of the extremists who actually do what to kill Americans. And here’s the punchline, Those conservatives, like Pam Geller are in that same 3% . My favorite argument against this Mosque and Muslims in general is the fear of them converting Christian children. Are you kidding me? Every organized Christian Church has its own missionaries, actively seeking out and converting anyone they can. So what if you lose a few to Islam, at the end of the day what should it matter to anyone, where anyone of any faith builds their churches and community center? Seems to me the only thing this center is provoking is Miss Geller’s personal prejudice, and Intolerance.
