I don't blame all white Christian men for Oklahoma City.
Building a mosque at the site of a "great victory" is an age-old Islamic practice.
This mosque would basically serve as a monument to the Islamic world to say, "this is where we kicked America's ass."
Should I blame every Christian for this?
Fred Phelps is a Christian, should I pretend that all Christians are to blame for what he does? So, I can assume all Christians hate soldiers?
"you're better off on Stormfront discussing how evil brown men are taking innocent white flowers." Infinite Chaos
Islam is not a united religion, it has sects, divisions, disagreements, etc that every major religion, including Christianity has. The individuals building this Mosque do not belong to a radical sect, specifically they are not Wahhabists. Osama bin Laden is a follower of the Wahhabi sect of Islam and taught that version of Islam to AQ and partly through the Taliban.
If you hate all Muslims for the crimes of a few, you're no better than a terrorist who hates all Westerners for what he perceives as the crimes of a few.
And it's at least suspected that McVeigh had ties to Christian Identity.
Militias, Christian Identity and the Radical Right
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Projecting thoughts or emotions onto others allows the person to consider them and how dysfunctional they are, but without feeling the attendant discomfort of knowing that these thoughts and emotions are their own. We can thus criticize the other person, distancing ourselves from our own dysfunction.
I love the smell of face-palm in the morning!
