Here is a cool thing to do: treat people right

28 Jul

I’m going to need some help wrapping my head around this heated “No mosque near Ground Zero” argument. Correct me if I’m wrong here, but this sounds like…what’s the term again…oh, right: blatant bigotry. Terrible, awful, shameful, un-American bigotry.

Unless I’m missing something, it seems the argument against the mosque is something along the lines of: because the guys responsible for 9/11 were Muslim, we are now hating all Muslims.

If so, that is very wrong. So wrong that I’m having trouble believing there isn’t more to the issue. I mean, am I required to hate all priests just because a bunch of them have been caught diddling the nether regions of choirboys? Do I have to throw my German coworker down a flight of stairs on account of World War II? That doesn’t seem fair. We should hate people based on their individual characteristics. That’s  the American way.

To the mosque haters: I urge you to change your stance on this matter, because by limiting religious freedom, your opposition to radical Islamists has resulted in you behaving exactly like them.
