When Obama campaigned, and also as President early on, he did not wear a flag pin nor salute the American flag, and when questioned it was reported that his response was, “it might offend someone.” (recently he has been seen wearing the pin – so pressuring him has results)
“The O” did not take part in the National Day of Prayer at the White House; his response was the same, “It might offend some people.” Who was (is?) he afraid of offending, Muslims? !!?
However it was reported that he both welcomed, and took part in, a Ramadan celebration at or near the White House. Was he afraid of offending anyone then? Nah…
Some people don’t want to see Manger scenes at Christmas, and only want ‘holiday songs’, not Christmas carols sung in school.
Partiality for others is becoming unbalanced. No Mosque unless they build a similar one for Christians, and a similar one for Jews. This is the very thinking which is said is being used regarding right wing broadcasts like FOX and Limbaugh. It’s time to turn and use the leftist thinking back on the leftists.
WE ARE OFFENDED at Muslims worshipping in streets of NYC, to the point that traffic is stopped or re-routed, photos which I recently saw on the net. The pictures were taken at 42nd St & Madison Ave, with other events reported at 94th St & 3rd Ave, Friday’s between 2-4PM. If no crèche is allowed on Government lawns – then no worshipping allah in government streets or on government property. Public areas must remain neutral. “Someone might be offended,” to quote the “O”. And, YES, we ARE offended, Mr. “O”.
If this great offense to, and violation of, neutrality is not rapidly corrected, Americans will soon be seen as not just weak, but stupid and gullible, if not already. Our objections must be loud, long and effectual. Anarchy and freedom are NOT synonymous, and it’s time the Muslims knew the difference.
Where has our freedom of choice gone? Our choice is NOT to have Muslims on prayer rugs worshipping in streets.
Christianity is not a door-mat religion. When I became a Christian I was given the ability to say NO to a lot of things. When we lose our freedom to say NO, we have lost our freedom.
Would you allow a neighbor with disagreeable relatives to put his large screen TV in your house? I believe that the Freedoms of the USA are for its citizens and its residents; not for the foreign powers funding the Mosque in question. If citizens or residents want to finance small mosques in their own communities, that’s different from a $100M mosque with questionable financing from abroad.
When we lose the ability to say NO, we have lost our freedom. The large $100M Mosque should not be here at all, anywhere. And we don’t need a reason to say NO, although there are plenty of reasons.
