32. Just like they have "legitimate" concerns about gay folks getting married.
Like they had "legitimate" concerns about school integration.

Just like they had "legitimate" concerns about black people voting.

Just like they had "legitimate" concerns about inter-racial marriage.

Just like they had "legitimate" concerns about a Catholic President.

Just like they had "legitimate" concerns about women voting.

Just like they had "legitimate" concerns about about sharing water fountains and lunch counters with blacks.

Just like they had "legitimate" concerns about black folks running amok without the structure and guidance from white masters.

Just like they had "legitimate" concerns about slaves learning to read.

Just like they had "legitimate" concerns about savage natives who had to be eradicated or exiled.

Just like the "legitimate" concerns the President might be a foreign national or gawd forbid a Muslim.

Just like the "legitimate" concerns of leaving Africans "Gawdless Savages" and kindly picking them up and giving them productive work.


Your so called concerns are cover for bigotry. When was the last time you expected let's call it clarification from another religious group and was it not some old bigoted bullshit.
If you have an accusation for this group then make it rather than tip toeing around with "legitimate questions". What the hell gives you the right to feel entitled to answers and what would it take to satisfy them for the mouthbreathers to say "Ohh okay. Glad we hashed that out, carry on"?

I notice you slipped out of dealing with that aspect of the issue.

There is no red herring because there is no reason that they SHOULDN'T build. They don't have to justify a damn thing and only a bigot would set the bar in such a fashion without some kind of justification.

There is no fuck you more than it is a fuck you for the Baptist to build a church near my house unless you are saying that all Muslims are terrorists and are in some fashion complicit or supportive of the 9/11 attack.

You are putting the two together and then make it this groups job to separate themselves and that is bigoted.

And yeah, I think a health portion of Americans are foaming at the mouth bigots toward Arabic and Islamic people. I dealt with the crazies demanding I fire two of my very best people after 9/11. I heard the cries to NUKE EM. I see the hatemongering across the country toward these folks. I see that "muslim" being used as the new nigger and the new commie. I've seen Indian people dogged out because people thought they looked like "camel jockeys" and "sand niggers".

I've gotten the batshit emails. I've seen it all. You can drape that "legitimate" mantle over your shoulders all you like but Islamaphobia is a big fucking deal in this country.

It is being who they are that these folks see as a BIG FUCK YOU.
