What Fresh Hell? A Mosque?

The following is taken from today’s opinion page of a local newspaper.

Does it strike anyone, other than me, as odd, misdirected and contradictory?

Maybe I'm just overwhelmed.

The Mosque

The Obama administration has sued Arizona to stop an immigration bill that the people (Arizona Legislature) overwhelmingly approved; it has sued the state of California to overturn a marriage law that Californians overwhelmingly approved. It rammed through a health-care bill that Americans overwhelmingly rejected.

Now, despite the people’s overwhelming objections, the president supports the construction of an Islamic mosque next to the hallowed national site of Ground Zero, the very symbol of anti-American Islamic terrorism.

Yes, the mosque has the legal right to build near Ground Zero.
But it flies in the face of the most basic teaching of humankind:

When the Pharisees asked Jesus what is the greatest commandment, he replied:

”Love the Lord your God with all your heart

and with all your soul and with all your mind.

This is the first and greatest commandment.

And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Contrary to what the New York imam says, the mosque near Ground Zero is not showing neighborly love. It is an outward thrust of spite.


  1. It is all sorta overwhelming ain't it? The Arizona law is challenged because it usurps federal immigration authority, I suppose the California thing refers to Prop 8 which was overturned by the courts not Obama, the "overwhelming" majority of Amerikins want health care just not the piece of shit the Republicans forced on us, the jackass apparently didn't read the last line of Jesus' commandment,or doesn't care, and A Friend of the Devil gets better with age.

  2. Pure horseshit. And, asshole, give me a fucking break with the bejesus quotes. God save us from these fuckers.

  3. At least this came from the opinion page. Too bad he believes that some of the opinions he buys into are facts, though.

    And agree w/ Mr. C re: Friend of the Devil.

  4. build the damned thing on the site of the wtc...then it can be called the American dome of the rock and then we can have at least 6o years of religious repression. that'll keep the assholes busy for awhile.
