49. You steadfastly stand by your belief in the the sanctity of the "rights" in America's constitution
Edited on Mon Sep-06-10 09:52 AM by Turborama
in a similar way that Muslims steadfastly stand by the belief in the sanctity of the words written in their centuries old Qu'ran.

I haven't once said anyone should be denied their rights. And "purpose and recourse" (or motives and intended results as I'd prefer to describe them) do matter a lot in the context of my argument above.

The campaign against the Islamic Community Center and the Qu'ran burning have two things in common. They are part of an organized hate and fear campaign aimed at Muslims.

Do you have any idea what the results will be if this continued hate and fear campaign continues?

Did you listen to Keith's Special Comment a couple of weeks ago? If not, here it is with transcript:

Also, here's a couple of examples of what's happening already in America:

NY Times: American Muslims Ask, Will We Ever Belong?

University of Florida Muslims fear Koran burning may spark violence

What will happen to US citizens who live outside of America in Muslim countries waits to be seen.

I may appear to be "snarky" to you, but I get annoyed when people apparently don't bother to read what I write or go to links that I provide to back up what I'm saying.
