Ground Zero Mosque and Freedom of Religion

Let me first be clear about one important fact.  Jesus died for the world, Muslims included.  The focus of this post is not about promoting fear or hatred.  But, it is also clear to me that the Ground Zero Mosque is not about freedom of religion. It’s about domination of Islam. Here is why…

To think that building a Mosque at “Ground Zero” is demonstrating freedom of religion is a misunderstanding of Mideastern Culture.

The truth is…

For centuries, Muslims have built mosques on the sites of their greatest military victories.  The purpose was to celebrate their triumph over their enemies.

The ground zero mosque will be a clear signal and celebration of victory to the Arab World (I repeat, “I am not against the Arab race as a people and individuals…but, I do oppose radical Islam as a religion.)

The last words on the lips of the 9/11 hijackers were “Allah Akbar”(Allah is the Greatest)…and those words will ring out over the grave site of more than 2,700 innocent Americans day and night if this mosque is built.  To me, and 70% of the American public, this is not a signal of the Muslim world showing honor but, instead, dishonor.

I do not, normally, post a political subject matter here.  But, I don’t believe this is a political issue, nor a topic on freedom of religion.  It’s a spiritual issue and needs to be handled as such.  The scriptures say, “If my people who call on my name will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and heal their land.” Do with this what you will.  But, first…check in with your own heart.  True life is about more than building a bigger, better, widget; Or, checking one’s own belly button lint to see if it feels good.
