My Thoughts on the Ground Zero Mosque

WARNING: Disturbing video
Okay - I'm probably repeating what most have already said, but deal with it. I have to get it out of my system.

It is a HORRIBLE idea to build a mosque at Ground Zero. Anyone with half a brain can figure that out, and they can figure out why. Do they have the right to build it? Unequivocally. But having the right to do something does NOT make it the right thing to do.

Those on the left contend that those of us who oppose the building of this mosque are intolerant, even racist. Keep in mind these are the same "tolerant" people who are trying to take Christianity out of every aspect of our lives.

This has nothing whatsoever to do with "tolerance" or "bigotry", but has EVERYTHING to do with respect. Respect for the victims of 9/11, respect for their families, respect for the hallowed ground upon which thousands died for absolutely no reason other than radical beliefs of those who want us dead simply because we ARE tolerant.

Why do they want to build the mosque at Ground Zero? Why not somewhere else? Because it's salt in the wound. It's a figurative flipping of the bird. It's a "gotcha." You see, my friends, this country is so concerned about not being seen as racist or bigoted, we bend over backwards to appease others regardless of whether or not we the people are offended.

I saw this video on facebook over the weekend, and I just can't shake it.


They estimate that it took about 10 seconds for those who jumped to hit ground. Imagine that. Seriously - stop and count off 10 seconds. And imagine what would be going through your head as you're flying through the air to certain death while not even knowing what happened.

A mosque a heartbeat away from where this happened? I don't fucking think so.

  2. Dude - or Dudette - this is SO not Obama. While I don't condone his remarks about the mosque, this is about the Imam who wants to build the mosque a heartbeat away from Ground Zero...
