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.

  • I’ve long since given up on trying to understand what goes through people’s heads. If our forefathers who founded this country saw all of the sh*t that goes on nowadays, they’d roll over in their graves. I’m totally with you on all of this.

Today's Deep Thought

  • I remember that one fateful day when coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. 'You don't have to tell me,' I said. 'I'm off the team, aren't I?' 'Well,' said coach, 'you never were really on the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet. you show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times.' It was all true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this coach. He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.
