If one applies the Beck/Palin/Limbaugh/Giuliani implied logic that states all Muslims must be terrorists or because Al Qaeda consists largely of Muslims one cannot build a mosque near the WTC, then all Christians must be abortion clinic bombers, abortion doctor murderers, racists, pedophiles, bigots, self-hating homosexuals, homophobes, etc. (They aren’t by the way).
Would FOX and company complain if a church were being built near a bombed abortion clinic? Near a primary school? No. Why? Because they’re attempting to use it as a wedge issue and none of them actually believe what they’re saying. This is as fake as pro wrestling but the stakes are higher: our freedom, our future and the direction the country and the world take from here. This is too important to wait for ’12. Get with it now.
