Mosque Mania

my letter makes the Bee.....

In response to those demanding that the proposed Muslim community center be relocated from the ground zero area, I have one thing to say: Right on! A handful of Muslims killed thousands of Americans on 9/11.

And while we're at it, I think we should also call for all Catholic churches to be removed from areas where children gather, since they are responsible for ruining the lives of thousands of young boys.

Also, shouldn't we ban Mormon Temples from anywhere that African-Americans are likely to live, given the church's ugly history of discrimination toward them?

Finally, Timothy McVeigh, who bombed the Oklahoma federal building, was a Christian. Is there any possible justification for allowing a Christian church to be built where federal workers would have to see it each day on their way to work? Outrageous! Let's have no more churches near any federal facility.

Let's stop this mosque in its tracks and then get to work on these other ghastly offenses in our society before someone starts to take religious freedom seriously. Who's with me?
