A Message for Bill O'Reilly Concerning the Ground Zero Mosques

I watched the clip of you on The View this morning. And I'd like you to "listen to me - you might learn something."

  1. It's not a Mosque. It's an Islamic Cultural Center. It's the difference between a church and the YMCA. (1)
  2. There's already a Mosque near ground zero - CLOSER than the not-Mosque you're talking about. (1)
  3. Young American *Muslim* men and women have fought and are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many have died for us there. (2) The same is true of Taoists, Bhuddists, Hindis, Athiests, Agnostics, and every other sect in this country. Are you too ignorant to realize that Ground Zero is hallowed for them as well?

The dangerous people are not the ones that happen to worship a particular god or gods. The dangerous people are the ones who can't stand that there are people who don't worship the same God that they do - and that includes you, sir.
