Forget? That’ll Be the Day!
It was like any other morning, at first. I was headed to my office, but first I wanted to check the markets on CNBC. They switched from their normal coverage just before nine AM and went to a live shot in New York. A horrible scene it was and it incredibly got worse less than 15 minutes later when a second airliner plowed into the | Read More »
I’ve already discussed the proposed Quran burning for this weekend by Dove Outreach in Florida. To make matters more interesting, or worse – depending upon how you look at it – apparently the church has worked together at least once before with Fred Phelp’s Westboro Baptists (according to a radio interview given by a local talk show with Mr. Jones). On top of that, material | Read More »

An Open Letter to the Qur’an Burning Pastor
Crossposted at The MonT-SteR REPORT Dear Pastor Jones, I can appreciate your concern for the falsity of Islam. As John Piper notes, bad theology dishonors God and hurts people, and I can’t think of a theological construct more hurtful, more violent, more angry, more damnable than Islam. Except for bad Christian theology. As ambassadors of Christ, we are charged with the awesome responsibility of representing | Read More »
Israel — Four – No, Make That Five Jews Murdered In Muslim Terrorist Attack Near Hevron.
By now, I know you’ve heard about this attack, so the event itself may be somewhat of a moot point for listing, but I need to anyway…… There’s two reasons. This is the first time I’m popping up a diary regarding something that occurs on almost a daily basis in Israel — Jews murdered by p.o.s. Muslim terrorists. So why now ?….. Why this time | Read More »
GZM; A Case Study in Liberal Thought
Some exchanges of viewpoint are just too instructive to ignore. Consider this Ground Zero Mosque situation. A scrambled egg-head academic wrote a strangely reasoned piece in the StarTribune on how intolerance regarding the mosque is hurting our country. What snapped in me was his blaming Christianity for this intolerance and smearing the entire religion as some kind of irresponsible hate group. I’ve become sick of | Read More »
Rahm-n-Weiner’s Gay Palace of Tolerance and Diversity
Since Greg Gutfeld suggested placing a gay bar next to the Ground Zero Mosque, I’ve begun warming to the idea. Since the Imam Rauf wants to build an edifice dedicated to bridging the gap between Islam and the West, I think Gutfeld’s idea has merit. But, we must make sure it is really a bridge and not just a pier. In order to make the | Read More »
Looney Left Says Muslims are Terrorists!
Drug flag! The latest blithering groupthink drivel from the Journolist master control program is a good example of the bewildering psychotic state of the Lying Left. They now claim the furor over the Ground Zero Mosque will trigger an intifada among young Muslims: “On Sunday Frank Rich speculated that the stoked up furor over the Lower Manhattan mosque could result in a threat to our | Read More »
News from the peaceful nuclear world: Sudan and Egypt are go.
News from the ‘peaceful’ nuclear world: Sudan AND Egypt. First we have Sudan. You know them. The friendly folks who host all the fun in Darfur. Sudan Moves Forward On ‘Peaceful’ Nuclear Reactor. Sudanese leaders established a nuclear program in early 2010, according to state news agency SUNA, and they plan to build the country’s first nuclear power station in 2020. They say the program is | Read More »
Imam Rauf’s Security Guard: “No Point In Relocating” Ground Zero Mosque; “Funding Will Come From Muslims Around The World”
Thursday outside of 51 Park Place in New York City–the location of the proposed Ground Zero Mosque–I interviewed Kamal Wahad who is a personal friend and follower of Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and security guard of the vacant building. During the interview Wahad said there is no point in relocating the mosque, and that the funding “will come from Muslims around the world.” To read | Read More »
Tolerance, Acceptance, Elitism, Leadership, and Muslims
We’re in the midst of the greatest example of dislocation and separation between the elite establishment and the people in flyover country this nation has ever seen. Inside their little alternate universe the elite project their assumptions on the rest of us here in the sticks and corn huskers of the Midwest, south, and other regions of the country. In their minds, since it came | Read More »
Ground Zero Mosque and the Questions Surrounding It
There are a lot of things being said about the Ground Zero Mosque. Should it stay, or should it go? Answering that question all depends on who you ask. You see, there are many that say it should absolutely go. And their reason is based on an emotional one. With many people agreeing, yes, it is symbolically a slap in the face. But mainly because | Read More »

911 Mosque Location, Sharia Law are Political
In the United states a priest or a pastor of a church can not give a sermon endorsing a particular candidate or political party. If he does, the church can loose its tax exempt status. This is because in endorsing a candidate or political party, the priest or pastor leaves the realm of religion/spirituality and crosses into the realm of politics. Political speech is not | Read More »
Israel: For no apparent reason, the Turkish government is building a 10 meter high wall along a section of the Old City wall.
Since we’re talking about Jerusalem – as in Israel – please allow me to repeat that headline. “For no apparent reason, the Turkish government is building a 10 meter high wall along a section of the Old City wall.” OK, calm down. I said……. CALM DOWN.

Mega Mosques and the Territorial Mark
Right now at ground zero in New York a battle over the construction of buildings following 9/11 is raging. It is hard to believe that almost nine years following the Islamic attacks that took thousands of American lives, post-9/11 construction has moved at the speed of a dying snail. Even more perplexing than the failure of New York officials to take on aggressive construction projects | Read More »
