Though "Islamo-phobia" has been around for 10ish years, this is the most public and visual event where it is evident.
Mosques have been burned and destroyed, rallies and protests against the construction of the mosque and even the people and religion itself is wrong. It's hatred. And when done in Christ's name, it is sin.
Do we still believe every Muslim is a terrorist? An extremist?
This community center that may be built at Ground Zero should strengthen the people in that area and remind them that ISLAM is not the problem.
It's poverty, lack of education and propaganda.
Not allowing a mosque or religious center to be built will not stop terrorism. I believe it only adds fire to the flame.
Where is our tolerance? Where is our love?
We burn this bridge and it will be a long time before we can build one again.
