I think the laws on separation of religion and state and not preventing someone from building something purely on the basis religion is bigotry. I have no doubt that some of the comments coming out from those who oppose the moSque are indeed rooted in bogotry.
HOWEVER: I am very familiar with both radical Islam AND the Canadian Muslim Congress and their work to stop what they call “political Islam”.
Because this group I know and trust is against the mosque for reasons like
href=”The”>muslimcanadiancongress.org MCC said it is opposed to the Ground-Zero mosque because many questions have gone unanswered. Questions about where the funding is coming from? If this mosque is being funded by Saudi sources, then it is an even bigger slap in the face of Americans as nine of the jihadis in the Twin Tower calamity were Saudis.
I no longer endorse the mosque but I vehemently oppose it.
I also remind those who are knee-jerk calling everyone who opposes it “bigots” to recall her words which are to not be stupid white folks who allow political/radical Islam to use political correctness against us. Radical Islam brought down those towers and killed thousands of innocents. Based on the Canadian Muslim Congress position I will not turn from the knowledge this is indeed radical/political Islam until the people putting up that mosque answer everyone of the CMC’s questions.
Feel free to dismiss me and the CMC concerns by calling me a bigot now. I know I am not one.
