More on the mosque

  1. What I don’t understand is why those who object to the property owners intended use… don’t just buy the property. If they are really serious, they need to put their own money where their mouths are instead of trying to get some governmental body to put my money and the barrel of a gun to the head of a legitimate property owner. Let ’em take up a collection if they can’t afford it individually. I might even contribute if they’d just shut up.

  2. The sad thing is that, horrendous acts aside, Timothy McVeigh is considered to be “one of us” gone astray, while Muslims are still considered to be “outsiders” whose beliefs and intentions are considered “inscrutable” the way we once though of the Asians. Sadder still, until we reach a time when we’re able to look inside ourselves for flaws – and answers – we’ll always feel the need for those we can label “outsiders” to to hold responsible when things aren’t going the way we want.

    1. Yes, terrorists are terrorists, no matter where they’re born. And their victims are just as dead. Yet somehow our terrorists are never as evil as foreign-born terrorists. Funny how that works.
