If you are a pastor, please encourage your congregation to be tolerant and respectful of Muslims. If you are a church member, please encourage your pastor to speak boldly about these things. A lot of Christians are confused and are looking to their trusted leaders for guidance. If the reasonable clergy stays silent, the only message people will hear from Christians will be the ones promoting hate and bigotry.

“Mosque/Community Center–which I think is today’s Viet-NAM vs Viet-NOM–is considered by some to be a “bad idea”. Don’t let a place of worship be built where they blah blah blah. My question to you: Hiroshima: Bad place to build a Christian Church?” asked by justinwasson via Formspring.

For now, there appears to be a line that those seeking to stop the so-called “Islamization” of America won’t cross. It’s not that they disagree with Terry Jones’ assessment of Islam, but they are reluctant to make the unwise choice of burning Korans.

Enough is enough. Enough with the bigotry and the hate. Enough with the race-baiting and the fake debate about the Ground Zero Mosque. Enough of white Americans putting up fences to keep their fellow humans out. Enough of the birthers.

The uproar by Americans as a result of the proposed construction of an Islamic community center near Ground Zero along with Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally in Washington, D.C. have pulled into focus the intense zeal that Americans have for religion. Undoubtedly, the characteristic of Americans that has been affirmed is the characteristic that Americans are dedicated to getting religion right.

With the growing anti-Islam fervor that has been ratcheting up as a result of people trying to stop a “Ground Zero Mosque” from being built, I wanted to address the people who are trying to confront those who are making this country more dangerous and who are endangering this country’s national security by writing a recruiting script for right wing fundamentalists or Islamists.

When President George W. Bush said those words to mark 2002’s Eid al-Fitr, I agreed with him. I still do. But as the controversy surrounding the plan to build a mosque in Lower Manhattan continues to intensify along political and religious lines, our national discussion increasingly points the way to a much dimmer future.

GOP, you wanted to gin up the bigot base of your party? Well, you got your wish. A man hailed cab at 24th Street in Manhattan and asked the cabby if he was a Muslim. When the cabby responded in the affirmative, the man slashed him in the throat, hand, upper arm and lips.
