If P-E-A-C-E-F-U-L Mooselimbs want to build a Mosque right in my backyard, I don’t care. Knock yourselves out. Crazy Same is true of Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus and any other religion.
But by God if you espouse terror and the imposition of Sharia law and “honor killings,” and if you support the 9/11 terrorists, GTFO and expect great opposition from me.
If Fred Phelps wanted to build a Westboro Baptist Church next to a queer bar in San Francisco I imagine that he would face opposition. Few if any would call his opponents “intolerant” or “bigots” or “racists.” Likewise, few if any would claim that his opponents were violating spirit or the letter of the Constitution.
I’m as tolerant of your religious beliefs as you can imagine. It’s your actions that I oppose. You can believe in your 72 virgins and have your Ramadamn fasts and refrain from alcohol and encourage your ugly women to wear a burka. I. Don’t. Care. But when your actions start affecting society, when you behead people and chop off limbs and stone people, then you’ve crossed the line and I am no longer “tolerant” of your shitty little 14th century religious beliefs.
Do I have to write it in Sanscrit or whatever the hell worthless p.o.s. language you camel jockeys use to communicate in your Koran in order to make myself clear?
That is all.
UPDATE: It’s Official. Even Harry Reid agrees with John Doe!
“The First Amendment protects freedom of religion,” spokesman Jim Manley said in a statement. “Sen. Reid respects that but thinks that the mosque should be built some place else. If the Republicans are being sincere, they would help us pass this long overdue bill to help the first responders whose health and livelihoods have been devastated because of their bravery on 911, rather than continuing to block this much-needed legislation.”
Tolerate Mooselimbs, at a sufficient distance. Whooops. Poor old gramps. He likes to parrot the liberal party line, and now he has TWO competing liberal party lines! What is an old geezer without a sufficient number of brain cells to think for himself gonna do? I’m betting Gramps–being a contrarian–will oppose whatever position the majority of conservatives adopt. Stay tuned…
