Thanks in no small part at all to those who have abandoned the First Amendment in favor of a paltry ideology which is motivated by nothing but fear, hatred, and disdain for others, the hatred exemplified in the Ground Zero Islamic Center protests has spread.
At least two faraway mosques have received menacing messages in the past week opposing the proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero. Many of the high-profile opponents of the mosque project in New York insist that their objection is limited to the proximity of the building to the site of the 9/11 attacks. But the messages suggest that at least a faction of those opposed implicate all Muslims, no matter how far away their places of worship may be from Ground Zero. In Fresno, Calif., two signs were left at the Madera Islamic Center last week, the Fresno Bee reported. “Wake up America, the enemy is here,” one read, and the other said, “No temple for the god of terrorism at Ground Zero.” A brick was also thrown at the mosque, the paper reported. And the Council on American-Islamic Relations says a toy pig was left at a Sacramento Valley Islamic center with the words “No mosque in NYC” and “Mohammed the pig” written on it. Islam regards pigs as unclean, and forbids believers from eating pork.
Have all these people forgotten recent history or do they really desire an American Kristallnacht? Because that’s what’s coming if Americans don’t stand up and repel this repulsive hate-mongering. Every authentically Christian person in America MUST speak out AGAINST this violence and spreading madness, or history will judge us most harshly indeed, and rightly compare our days to the early days of Nazi terror and murder of the Jews.
What next? Internment camps for Muslims? Death Camps? That appears to be what the far right wing nutbags are aiming for. And if it comes to that it will only be because Christians in America laid down just as their German brothers and sisters did in the 1930’s. Stand up and be heard, followers of Christ. It’s your duty.
