    HOWEVER, I think if I was a police officer or an investigator it would be the most logical place to start and if I was a betting man I'd bet the crime was motivated by some anti-Islamic feelings. We all have to admit that there are some very strong feelings regarding Islam in America among a lot of people, and it only takes ONE person to go over the edge for just a little way to burn down a building. I think its safe to say that without offending any feelings.
    No one's saying that some idiot bigot DIDN'T do this, but holy hells the jump to that conclusion went way overboard, all the way to Dan going on about Church Burnings of the 60's man. That's just over-the-top **** right there.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I was preaching at the choir. Sorry didn't mean to imply otherwise.

    I would think, as a Canadian, that you'd be used to it by now.

    Anyway, it's a huge assumption--on your part--that this crime is racially/religiously based, particularly since the law enforcement investigating it have made zero announcements about the motives.

    Talk about getting the cart before the horse.

    Re: Fire at Tenn. Mosque Building Site Ruled Arson

    These threads make me chuckle.

    The people that like to jump to conclusions with things like the Hollocaust museum shooting or Foot Hood and other type of things immedietely going "Bet its a Muslim!" jump on the "Lets wait and get an investigation" bandwagon.

    The people that like to criticize those that jump to conclusions in the above cases are the ones on things like this or the census worker who like to go "Bet its someone inspired by those right wing radical personalities!" bandwagon.

    Seriously, is it not possible for people across the board in these instances to say "Hey, I think something and something may be likely due to x, y, z but until we get some more tangible information I'm not going to start throwing around condemnations and making wild statements as if its near fact"

    I think that there are a few of us who have consistently said these things, but we tend to get drowned out by the rampaging partisan mouth-frothers.

    I guess you and Vicchio didn't read the article. The police seem convinced. But I suppose you two know better -- had to be 'Jewish Lightening' right, what a nice thought.
