With this whole mosque debate going on and about how close it could be built to Ground Zero, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the subject.  We practice freedom of religion in this country.  We have the right to practice whatever religion we choose.  So from a legal standpoint, the mosque should be allowed to be built.  But that being said, it is an absolute slap in the face of Americans everywhere to build this.  It is the ultimate in disrespect.  And in my opinion, it is clearly being built for one purpose: to provoke us.  I think my Dad said it best when he said “They can build that Ground Zero mosque the day that Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and the rest of those hard line Muslim countries allow a Christian church or Synagogue to be built without obstruction on their turf.”

While freedom of religion is “practiced” in the US, it is done within our laws.  But in a global view of things, I can’t say I’m for freedom of religion.  If freedom of religion means I have to be cool with a group who mistreats women by cutting their noses off or stoning them to death as forms of punishment, then I guess I’m against freedom of religion.  So sue me.  There is something really jacked up when a religion is cool with something as heinous as honor killings.  Screw that.  I know I’m pointing the finger at Islam, but I feel this way towards any religion that violates human rights.  That goes for the Catholic church and their child abuse scandals, as well as any cults or wackos like David Koresh.

Anyway, I hope I’ve gotten my point across.  But one more knock against Islam.  If Islam is keeping girls like this girl in the video under wraps, then I’m even more against freedom of religion.  Not cool.
