America Overrun by Muslims in 20 Years?

Last week the New York Times shared Diana Serafin’s justification for banning a mosque in Tennessee:

Sholley Attacks Muslims and Atheists Alike

Earl Sholley’s campaign of scapegoating against Muslims and atheists should serve as a reminder that when the freedom of religion of one cultural minority is threatened, the religious freedom of all minorities is made vulnerable. [...]

Thad McCotter Strikes Moderate Tone on Mosques in America

On August 20, Representative Thaddeus McCotter of Michigan called in to the Dennis Miller radio show to explain his stance on the building of a mosque in Manhattan. Here’s what he said:

In America, there is no Right to Not Have Your Feelings Hurt

Protesting for government prohibition of a community center containing a mosque in Manhattan, one woman declares that the presence of a mosque inside a community center would be “like a knife in our hearts”. She echoes the earlier weaponish sentiment of the erstwhile-something-or-other Sarah Palin, who insists that a mosque should be banned by government [...]

I Love Freedom More Than I Hate Islam

No Mosque in Bridgeport, CT or Charlotte, NC? Classic Religious Bigotry

It’s not a 9/11 thing. It’s not a “Ground Zero” thing. The move to push mosques out is taking place across America, and it’s a religious bigotry thing.

Bigot. n. a person who is intolerant, esp. regarding religion, politics, or race

Catholic Archbishop Glad to Help Shove Mosque out of His Territory

The Catholic Archbishop of New York says he’d be glad to help Muslim Americans move their things out of Manhattan, relocating a mosque out of his territory. How neighborly. Just as neighborly as when he nixed the erection of a mosque in Staten Island, also his territory.

This fight is about a squabble between religions, [...]
