What a way to celebrate 9/11?

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.

Try a Unity Church...very accepting of all people in my experience.

I almost didn't click on this when I saw the title.  I'm glad I did.  With all the back and forth on these different issues lately, it's nice to see a voice of reason.  I've been saying often, to people on both sides, I may not agree with what you say but I will always defend your right to say it!  This time I get to say - I agree with what you say and I appreciate the way you said it.  :)

Thanks Chuck and Gayla. Just read about a couple of Muslim guys crossing America during Ramadan on CNN, so maybe things are not as bad as they are portrayed and we are more accepting in small town America.

Nick... this is just sad all over, especially on how our country was founded and the beliefs that it was founded on... and how they have taken god and the flag out of schools.  Now, I am a non-practicing Catholic in the last 10 years... for reasons.. but I have a faith that is strong,.... but we are just destroying our country and it's getting worse. How soon we do forget...
