It saddens me that 9 years following the disaster of 9/11 America has moved away from the wonderful position they took immediately following that disaster and attack. Our fight is with terrorists who happen to claim to be Muslims, but not with Muslims. As was stated by George Bush himself. When Britain dealt with the IRA their fight was against terrorists not the Irish people, although many on both tried to project it as otherwise. But peace came when people, mainly women decided enough was enough.
Today, in a country founded upon religious freedom and tolerance, we have so called pastors threatening to burn the holy books of another faith, which shows little freedom or tolerance and seems more like small minded individuals just wanting air time. I recently have stopped going to church, and my primary reason was that I found "the church" had become a right wing mouthpiece, and if you had a different opinion you were viewed as a "backslider".
Church and state can be separated whilst at the same time realizing that our country was founded upon religious tolerance and freedom.
At the same time, I welcome the news I read today about my own community and how a mosque opened, next to a synagogue and across the road from a Baptist church, and just a couple of miles from Valley Forge National Park, a symbol of the freedom our forefathers suffered for and won generations ago.
