The Tea Party versus the Mosque…

Good morning, Netizens…


As I peer at David Horsey’s cartoon this morning through bloodshot bleary eyes, try as I might I cannot consciously recall any Tea Party rallies being held at the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial. Thus David Horsey’s premise is somewhat obtuse and misleading. In fact, the only religious groups I have heard of holding rallies in Oklahoma City were held far from the Memorial, but I could be wrong.


Of course, some bright-eyed pilgrims from the Tea Party might possibly steal the idea from this cartoon, and the next thing you would know, everyone else would be howling at the top of their lungs. Would you?


What would we say if the Seventh Day Adventists or the some extremely Fundamentalist Baptists decide to build a church down the street from Ground Zero? Would all the other organized religions want to build edifices of their own? Who would complain about them?


Do we always associate Muslim Terrorists with traditional mainstream Muslims? It would seem so, but unfortunately that could be wrong.
