Re: Kevin Foley guest column, "America is tolerant (unless you're a Muslim)," Sunday's MDJ
Agnostic Kevin Foley spews his hatred of and mocks Christian beliefs and values through his weak comparisons of Timothy McVeigh's membership in the so-called "Christian Identity" movement and to the absence of objections to churches popping up near the grounds where the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City once stood. He labels McVeigh as the "Christian terrorist ... the Christian al-Qaida." These churches, according to Foley, "represent all that McVeigh stood for." How pathetic! Does he really believe that? And if not churches, what would he rather have built there? Massage parlors? Abortion clinics?
Foley goes on to draw comparisons of Newt Gingrich and Pamela Geller to the other "right-wing fanatics" on Fox News and then sings the praises of "those people doing this mosque ... this community center." According to the agnostic, "They only wish to develop an American version of Islam to compete around the world with the Wahabi - the Saudi intolerant version of Islam."
If there is a tolerant version of Islam somewhere, I'd like Foley to let us know where it might be hiding. I also want to know where I might find the uproar from the "peaceful and tolerant" sector of Muslims over the hijacking of their "loving religion" by those extremists. Just pick up a copy of the Koran and you'll find it filled with hatred towards the infidel, even to the point of justifying murder.
Foley conveniently ignores the anti-American hatred that this imam, promoting the construction of the mosque, is known for. You know, the one President Obama has, in his wisdom, appointed to represent the "American version of Islam" currently on a global tour on our tax dollars, no less. You know, the imam who declared that "Americans have more blood on their hands than al-Qaida." I'm sure he is representing us well during his mosque fund-raising efforts.
The mosque promoters providing the Kool-Aid to their well-intentioned but stupid supporters want only one thing - to mock and dance on the graves of 2,700-plus innocent dead Americans in victory for the Islamic world to see.
