In 2007, no less. Who did it?
Father Manuel Musallem, head of Gaza’s Latin church,told the AP that Muslims have ransacked, burned and looted a school and convent that are part of the Gaza Strip’s small Romany Catholic community. He told the AP that crosses were broken, damage was done to a statue of Jesus, and at the Rosary Sister School and nearby convent, prayer books were burned.
Father Musalam additionally told The Jerusalem Post that the Muslim gunmen used rocket-propeled grenades (RPGs) to blow through the doors of the church and school, before burning Bibles and destroying every cross they could get their hands on.
Who burned the Koran that resulted in the murder of ten Christian missionaries last month?
Or the countless airplane hijackings, discotheque bombings, etc., etc., etc.
No, instead, the focus is on some Yosemite Sam-looking pastor from Florida. No, he wasn’t being what the Scripture tells us is a good ambassador of faith, which is probably why only 50 people comprise his congregation. However, this is America, and in America you can burn whatever you want because free speech wasn’t designed to protect only the speech and expressions with which we are comfortable. It’s easy to claim tolerance and acceptance of the things with which you agree; the true test comes when you’re faced with speech (no defamation, not libel, but SPEECH) that you don’t like. Denying such is wholly inconsistent. And it’s no place for any member of government to butt in and instruct private citizens on how they can conduct their private activities. If you want to not put a target on our soldiers’ backs (which countless veterans who’ve called into my show tell me is already there) maybe stop the Wikileaks crap, stop broadcasting to terrorists when we’re leaving Afghanistan, stop getting in front of the cameras and drumming up attention to what one dude in Florida wants to do. And these people run our government? Facepalm.
Obama says that “As Americans, we will not or ever be at war with Islam.”
Where did this nation’s balls go?
