Another Misdirection of Liberal Energy

(OKLAHOMA CITY) Ah, again we liberals let the fundies of America push us into a confrontation over religion to demonstrate to the Joe Six-Packs and Suzie Kitchens who can't name the five freedoms of the First Amendment that somehow defending Muslims is destroying America and giving comfort to the enemies of our American military.

The core issue is that the use of fiction coached as "truth" is being used to misdirect our progressive energy.

The American fundie movement works, lives, and breathes for division and they are usually successful. Just look at how many fundamentalist denominations there are just in America.

Have the liberals, of which I'm one, taken the time to investigate how many commercial, capitalist stores, shops, and offices are already being planned for this so-called WTC sacred site?

If the WTC property were truly considered a sacred site it would now, after nine years, be a park with tasteful monuments, paths, flower beds, and docents offering tasteful, non-offending guided tours in soft voices, much as the Alamo is now exhibited in Texas. Liberals have allowed themselves to be used by those who have no need for the First Amendment and would squash basic freedoms like unwanted vermon.

Leftie religionists tell us to read the Koran and see for ourselves what a peaceful religion it is.

Okay, let's look. The following quotes are taken from the website "The Religion of Peace" ( click here ).

Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

How's this one sound to those progressive Christians who defend Islam as a religion of peace:

Quran (9:30) - "And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!"

Had enough?

Now it's the turn of the bible, the same "good news" used by progressives and regressives of the Christian kind.

"The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance. He shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked."

(Psalms 58:10)

And one more for balance.
