    But maybe not. Perhaps the idea is that Catholic churches are somehow incompatible with elementary schools. Parking problems maybe, or something.
    No, the idea was that the Catholic Church seemingly had trouble with pedophilia and that the leadership of said religion went so far as to protect priests and cover up, not really Christian. Normal individuals who would have done this would be in jail and not allowed that. So should an organization which essentially defended pedophilia be trusted and around kids if we say this behavior isn't allowed in individual?

    I still find it silly, though Rome's response to this was very very VERY unfortunate. But this thread isn't really about that.

    So, is it just statements? Just words which can be inflammatory? Can it be action?

    Ah, and now the real reasons the thread title is not inflammatory to you comes out.

    I did not make this thread for the purpose of pissing anyone off. I made this thread during the whole ground zero mosque controversy to make a point that you shouldn't condemn a whole religion for the actions of a few.
    "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"

    I get the point you were trying to make, although I think it's too simplistic to say that's the only reason for opposing the GZ Mosque. I don't think you're intent was to bash the Catholic church, but you were making a connection between Catholics and child molestation. That's pretty inflammatory. Many people post inflammatory things to get a reaction or to stir up the conversation. There's nothing particulary wrong with that but it doesn't make the statement any less inflammatory.

    Other than trying to blame all Muslims for 9-11 by claiming the mosque is somehow a victory mosque for the attack on 9-11 then what other reason is there for opposing the mosque?

    I don't think you're intent was to bash the Catholic church, but you were making a connection between Catholics and child molestation.
    I just used what negative thing many people associate with the catholic church which is pedophilia, even though only a small percentage of catholic priests engaged in child molestation. Just like many people associate terrorism with muslims even though only a small percentage engage in terrorist and support terrorism.
