Have you ever been watching TV and see a report from an oil magnate, like the CEO of “Big Oil, Inc.” who is issuing an apology to his investors for being down in the first quarter… yet that company still made $3.4 billion?!
This appalling story of resounding bad form and complete disregard for anyone is like that.
Anyone remember that cataclysmic event known solely for its infamous date? 9/11? You know, Islamic terrorists? Airplanes? National hysteria?
So in the “What the what” department, a few Imams and a gaggle of militant Muslims who dig this “free speech” thing in America have decided to petition a New York community board to build a $100 million mosque, Islamic community center and basketball court practically in ‘Ground Zero’, the site for the devastating attacks.
Yeah, I know. And even worse, it was approved with a vote of 29 to 1.
To kick this tirade off, props to whomever was the only person on that board with the temerity to say, “You know, this may not be such a good idea.” And the rest of those dolts who are either so blindsided with P.C. or wetting their britches to say what they should have, shame on you. Idiots.
“I couldn’t believe that this is really true,” wrote Sabatina James to The Christian Post in an e-mail. “Building the mosque where thousands of people died because of Islamic terror is just indecent.”
James, whose book My Fight for Faith and Freedom is a bestseller in Germany, is currently living under police protection in Germany because of death threats against her for converting to Christianity. She said her German friends were shocked when they heard that a mosque might be built near the site of the 9/11 terror attacks.
I mean, seriously. What is anyone thinking in the Big Apple… with a worm in it?
What do you think would happen if when Louis Farrakhan dies, Mosque Maryam (the warm, national confines of the Nation of Islam) goes belly up and is vacated. This is site is historic, but a few rabbis think that is some prime real estate would be a great location for a Jewish school and gets the party started with a sweet Bat Mitzvah.
You think the kerfuffle that would proceed would make headlines? Possibly a guest appearance on ‘Americas Most Wanted’? MEMO to New York City: Two words for ya’, “Never Forget.”
Yeah, apparently you did because that was a cutsy, marketing phrase your beloved city concocted to plaster on everyone’s bumper this side of the Mississippi. You know, kind of a tribute thing for all those natives that um, DIED in your friggin’ town.
I know 2001 seems like a land in far, far away but believe me, it’s still too soon for this. This is much more than a religious issue; it’s a national one.
Community Board 1 member Rob Townley who called the plan a “seed of peace.”
Yeah, that’s nice there Bobby. Only it’s not so much a seed as it is a wheelbarrow full of fertilizer, if you know what I’m saying. Although it’s tragically unfair for all Muslims in this country to be painted with the “that religion” brush, it’s the 800-pound gorilla in the room.
Cordoba House is not a tribute or a memorial. It’s a reminder of that gorilla flinging poo at the memories of the 2,700 people who were murdered on that fateful day.
If you want to honor those victims, build a park, do community service or help clean that mess. But do not build a house of worship toward your god where so many still need to feel a touch from theirs.
“Indecent?” That’s the understatement of the year. The only problem is that we can’t seem to find anyone in New York who is willing to overstate the obvious.
