Christians, especially the intolerant hateful kind, have taken up a new strategy in their quest to establish the American Taliban and American Theocracy. You know, the concept that the Constitution of the United States is a Christian document and the Bill of Rights is inspired by the Ten Commandments. Hmmm, ten amendments in the Bill of Rights and something approximating ten commandments (depending on which version you read). I see the argument.
Well, the latest argument is best exemplified by the moronic citizens of Murfreesboro, TN. Despite a long established and peaceful Muslim community, the citizens of the town are all up in arms about their desire to build a new mosque and community center. Earlier this year, construction equipment being used to build the new mosque was set on fire. Now the citizens of the community are claiming the whole building permit was done without public hearings and have rejected any freedom of religion claims because they say Islam is not a religion. In other words, Muslims are not Christians and so, not in my backyard. Christianity is the only true religion and that is what the Constitution protects, and only protects.
In a similar vein, in a recent story out of North Carolina, a couple put their two sons into a cub scout troop sponsored by a local Presbyterian church. After sometime, they volunteered to be leaders. However, they were asked to step down as leaders when it was identified that they were members of the LDS Church. The claim? Mormons are not true Christians.
The hateful Christian-only rhetoric from the likes of Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich. The complete and utter stupidity of Christine O'Donnell, Sharon Angle, and Michelle Bachmann is nothing short of guanophrenic. They have inspired a whole new class of angry, hateful voters, and for all the wrong reasons.
