Hi, everyone. Happy Tuesday, and welcome back to a fun-filled four days of Genius Idiocy. Glad to have you along for the ride.
Re: the Islam On Capitol Hill prayer event. Enjoy.
“This makes me sick to my stomach that this will be happening. I wish thousands of Christians would come out that day and surround them. That would be awesome if that would happen. We need people to go there and pray to the real God! “
Well, it’s the same God, you know. Yawheh, Allah, God…it’s the same guy. Or girl.
“Even though America allows freedom of worship, this event should not be happening in this country! “
…Even though America allows freedom of worship. Right. Continue.
“This event is a desecration of our founding forefathers ideals and beliefs about America. God is not going to be pleased with this!”
See, there’s that thing again. Our founding fathers did not jumpstart America with the power cables of deism. As for God, well…I’d guess He’s probably happy people talk to Him, wherever they may be.
“To those who think we should allow this because of religious freedom...do you really think God would want us to appease them just because it's their right? “
“I say NO! God would not want us to compromise our faith! God was at the center of the creation of our country. This is an abomination to America. “
Once again: No. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. The Constitution. Article I.
“Let the Islamics worship in their own mosques...not at the Capitol!!!”
Islamics?! They’re Muslims. If you’re going to insult someone, at least get the denomination right. And as for the rest of it, if someone said the same thing about banning your religion from a prayer event at the Capitol, you’d be screeching “discrimination”.
But I will concede: such services should be held in an actual house of worship, not in a government building.
That way, everyone can get pissed off about it. --Irish
