RELIGION VS. CYNICISM
Don’t let faith turn into hate. Freedom and democracy is what made America a great country.
It’s now become a hot topic on whether or not it’s right to build a Mosque near Ground Zero while the controversy continues over respect for the loss of loved ones, the victims and heroes.
People shout and have their doubts, but what it is really all about? Some American Muslims might be terrorists. This is true, but it’s the radicals that have been brought to justice. America is a country of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism and many other religions. Let’s not make the wrong decision.
While there is good and bad in every society we the people must not view one’s religion with cynicism or skepticism.
Every American has constitutional rights, but the doctrine does not cover using your might and getting into a fist fight. The basis of our American Constitution dictates freedom of speech, religion and civil rights.
So what do we know about Sharia or Islamic Law and what does it stand for? Totalitarianism a political system which contradicts the foundation of our laws, American Constitution and the vision of our Founding Fathers.
Pastor Jones’ Quran Holy Book Burning
Citizens anger over the construction of an Islamic Mosque in close proximity to rebuilding the World Trade Center just down the block. Gainesville, Florida Pastor Terry Jones threatens to burn 200 copies of the Quran holy books on 9/11. UK Interior Minister is considering barring the pastor from entering the country.

Pastor Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center after meeting with Florida Imam Muhammad Musri has agreed not to burn 200 copies of the Quran holy books, but take a flight with Musri to New York and talk with Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf on Saturday about relocating the Mosque project. Meanwhile Musri has not spoken to Iman Rauf personally, but to his staff who stated Rauf “was open” to making a decision on a new location.
There seems to be two different sides to this story. Purportedly Defense Secretary Robert Gates or the White House telephoned Pastor Jones to reconsider the book-burning. Imam Rauf now denies considering relocating the Mosque or bartering and says we come to build peace and harmony. Jones claims negotiations were ongoing.
Whether it was Pastor Terry Jones’ estranged daughter, Emma who begged her father or whatever prompted him, Pastor Jones completed his mission. He is canceling the Quran book burning.
