Going Rogue on the NY Mosque Controversy?

Contributed by iPlan

Have you ever noticed that there is no toleration for the “open exchange of ideas within the Muslim community?”  Want to test my hypothesis?  All you have to do is go to Saudi Arabia with 50 copies of the Holy Bible in your carryon bag, and see what happens.  If you even make it through airport security, head out to the town square, and start handing these Bibles out, while reciting your favorite Billy Graham sermon.  Let me tell you brother, there’s room at the cross for you, and you’ll soon meet Jesus ~ possibly in the very town square you began your sermon.

The crux of the Muslim NY Mosque controversy is this:  God grants us the freedom of religion, and it is codified in our Bill of Rights.  That does not guarantee the freedom to build a church wherever you please.  Countless Christian churches have been denied building permits by city councils.  Many of them have gone to court to fight the decision, and all of them have lost.

If we grant the Muslims a Mosque so near “Ground Zero,” why don’t we demand that Iraq sell us one of S. Hussein’s former palaces so that we can convert it into a Christian Church?

Do you think we’d get the thumbs up?

Our founding fathers envisioned a country where you would not fear retribution for the religious ideas you held.  In other words, you could share your faith publicly (whatever that faith might be), and not fear retribution from a US version of the “Spanish Inquisition.”  Clearly we are moving away from that original intent.

Along these US/ Muslim & rest of the world) relations, I’m posting a script from a Robin Williams comedy routine that reportedly was done on an outdoor stage in New York City.  I’m not sure he even said this, but there is a picture of him on stage with a microphone in his hand (wearing a t-shirt that says “I love New York” in Arabic) that was attached to this document.

‘I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here’s one plan.’

1) ‘The US, UK , CANADA and AUSTRALIA will apologize to the world for our ‘interference’ in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those ‘good ‘ole’ boys’, we will never ‘interfere’ again.

2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany, South Korea, the Middle East, and the Philippines. They don’t want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.

3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We’ll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are from. They’re illegal! France will welcome them.

4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in. If you don’t like it there, change it yourself and don’t hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone. We don’t need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

5) No foreign ‘students’ over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don’t attend classes, they get a ‘D’ (for Deportation) and it’s back home baby.

6) The UK, CANADA ,AUSTRALIA and the US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing non-polluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while.

7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don’t like it, we go someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)

8 ) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not ‘interfere.’ They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.

9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We don’t need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.

10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us ‘Ugly Americans’ any longer. The Language we speak is ENGLISH…learn it…or LEAVE. Now, isn’t that a winner of a plan?

The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying ‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.’ She’s got a baseball bat and she’s yelling, ‘you want a piece of me?’ ‘

  1. Bingo – it drives me up the wall that there are those who call this a Consitutional issue. It’s nothing of the sort – it’s a matter of respect to those who died at Ground Zero (and I ain’t talking about the hijacker/terrorists). Those survivors don’t need a permanent reminder of that day, built right up next to the spot where their loved ones perished. If it was anything but a wish to rub Americans’ faces in September 11, those responsible wouldn’t even be contemplating the construction. As it is, those of us opposed to it are justified in thinking the worst of them.

  2. Interesting post. I weep for anyone who takes advice or seeks counsel from a person who portrayed both Mork and Mrs. Doubtfire.

  3. He was in Bicentennial Man too and that movie sucked. I’m just sayin’. Then again, Ronald Reagan was in Bedtime for Bonzo to maybe Williams ought to run for Prez!

  4. Alphonse:

    So you’re discounting his ideas because he is an actor?

    Do we discount your ideas because your a democrat?

    Just wondering…..
