    Does 13 crosses or 13 crescents mean anything?And how do you know if there is a correlation between the vandalism at your church and what a mosque 3-4 miles (4.82 km-6.437 km) away puts on their lawn or buildings?

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Simply that their faith is very strong.

    There is a religious university in my town that has a giant pair of hands praying, it must mean they hate British people.

    When it's a mosque in NY city, it's a clear monument to the triumph over the infidels on 9/11, a throwback to the Muslim tradition of building mosques on conquered Christian lands. Obviously!

    When it's Christians who say they're sending a message to local Muslims who want to build a mosque, then it's all "whoa whoa whoa, let's not jump to conclusions!"

    Their realtor got them a really good price on their spot since I HAVE to pass by it from 3 freakin miles away to go to church. Thats some location apparently. Besides that, if you have to resort to putting up bunches and bunches of symbols to show how strong your faith is to others, you are crossing into the idoltry thing, its kind of a no no. Just sayin.

    I had no problem with a mosque being built close to or blocks away from where 911 happened.As a matter of fact I even made a poll to illustrate how silly some of these people are for saying there shouldn't be a mosque near there.

    It wasn't meant towards you specifically, it was my frustration at this thread.
