And so it begins: the building of a mosque by a Muslim cleric who by all accounts thus far has proven himself to be very radical in his Islamic faith, on a site where radical Muslims committed the greatest atrocity our soil has ever seen in many years: the wanton destruction f at least 3,000 innocent lives. What in the world are these idiots thinking?!?!?!?!
People like me are called bigots and throwing the First Amendment out the window with regard to this controversy. Am I? By all accounts, the cleric has declared his radical intentions by being unwilling to call a spade a spade and declare Hamas the terrorist organization it has shown itself to be. He also states that America must become more in compliance with Shariah Law.
Shariah Law is perhaps one of the worst system of laws ever conceived, very anti-thetical to our Constitution and Declaration of Independence and the freedoms granted by the First Amendment. Under this system of laws if the clerics even SUSPECT a woman of adultery, that woman is stoned to death along with her unborn child if she’s carrying one (and they say they are against abortion, riiiiiiight). Under this system of laws a person incurs the penalty of death for rejecting Islam. And this is the system of laws that this cleric would like to see America adopt?!?!?!
Samuel Adams once said: “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” (from http://quotes.liberty-tree.ca/quotes_by/samuel+adams)
Well I will adapt this quote to say that if your religious beliefs are offensive to the American culture of liberty and justice for all, as radical Islam is, then go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands of your master (in radical Islam’s case, Shariah Law). May the chains of your servitude set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. So if standing against those who seek nothing but the complete and total submission of our nation to the radical Islamist Shariah Law makes me a bigot, then I am proud to be called one.
