When things are investigated, knowledge is extended. When knowledge is extended, the will becomes sincere. When the will is sincere, the mind is correct. When the mind is correct, the self is cultivated. -- Confucius
Politically correct ideals are garbage: true wisdom comes from decades of deep thought and neutral observation. Only a so-called sociopath could ascertain wisdom from this crazy world in a neutral way. Cool thoughts- uncorrupted by modern politics, social norms, or societal ideals- are required for wisdom. Questioning everything, and going against the grain on all universally accepted norms is the path to true intelligence. The Gods notice this.

Let's Burn the Holy Bible on 9/11

I am SO SICK of the religious bigotry and hypocrisy in this country!

How telling that one crackpot excuse for a "reverend" from a tiny 'church' in Florida could get international attention by spewing lies and hatred toward another religion. The media went into one of its frenzies yet again- just like the time Britney Spears cut her hair, and the time Paris Hilton tried to hide cocaine in her orifice. Now, a crazy liar declares he is going to make a bonfire out of the holy books of another people's religion, because he is such a festering bigot that he is upset over their plan to build a new worship building. Boy, that makes sense! When the media gave him all that attention, they surely stroked his ego and made him feel justified somehow.

There are a few glaring problems with his idiotic scheme though. First, does he really think that the people who are about to build the mosque in New York are going to say, "Oh no, please don't burn our books! We will not build it, just let the books go!" Further, why does he think it is better for them to pray in the streets near the old WTC than inside a building near the old WTC? Do these morons who oppose the mosque in Manhattan not even know that there are so many Muslims living and working in that area that they literally fill the sidewalks and the police have to block the streets sometimes so they can pray in the streets too? They have no place to go in the area. So do you want them in the streets or in a building? That is the real issue.

It also escapes the moronic idiots that this is -at least supposedly- a FREE country, founded upon the premise of religious freedom. That was the whole idea of the Puritans coming here to start with. The Founding Fathers wrote it into their extensive writings including the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. So if the crazy, hypocritical pseudo-Christian rabble-rousers like it or not, the Muslims have as much right to be here and worship here just as much as they do. If the Muslims cannot build a mosque in Manhattan, then the Christians should also be banned from building a church in Manhattan. It's only fair.

I realize that the implied excuse everyone is trying to tag onto this trumped up issue is that since Muslims were allegedly responsible for the 9/11 attacks, then they should not disrespect the memories of the dead Christians who died that day. This argument is itself hypocritical, un-American, and patently absurd. Does this mean no mosques can be built in Washington D.C. either, nor Shanksville, PA??? By this reasoning, then let us ban all Christian churches where a Christian committed a murder. There goes 98% of this country's churches. But it would be disrespectful to let them murdering Christians worship near a place where a Christian killed someone! So come on, let's start closing down all of the churches in America within a few blocks of where a Christian killed someone. Why not? It is exactly the same thing.

Of course, all of this nonsense operates under the pretense that 1.all Muslims are exactly the same, and if a few will kill, then they are all vicious murderers, and 2.that Muslims committed the crime in the first place. If you believe the first statement, then you are simply an intolerant bigot that has no idea what a Muslim is or what their holy book says, and you most likely revere Hitler to boot. If you believe #2, then allow me to explain a few things to you.

As I laid out on my 911 page, tabbed at top, the government's fairy tale about 911 is laughably stupid and easily disproven. Just because 'they say so', it does not mean that the laws of physics are changeable at their whim. And if their tale is false, then who did commit those acts on that day? Someone sure did, and it wasn't likely to be any Muslims. Who had the means, motive, and opportunity? And what if you follow the money trail? Answering these simple questions decimates the govt.'s lies, and throws serious doubt onto the claim that 'Muslims did 911'.

If it is unlikely that the perpetrators were even Muslims to start with, and if a few radicals of any religion differ from their mainstream counterparts, then what is the problem? Like I said earlier, a few crazy rabble-rousers are the ones making all this stuff up. In order to oppose the mosque being built in Manhattan, you must believe several unprovable lies: a) that Muslims committed 911, b) that all Muslims are insane murderous villains who hate Christians and took delight in the events of 911, c) that America is not a free country despite what the Puritans intended and what the Founding Fathers wrote into the Constitution, d) that only Christians have the right to worship in an area where a Christian was killed, e) that the actions of a murderer create a 'no-worship zone' around where he killed someone for the other people of his religion, f) that the previous concept does not apply to Christians, because there have been so many Christians that have killed in this country that it would be impossible to enforce, g) that Muslims in particular have no right to worship indoors- only in the streets. If you actually believe all of those statements, then you are not an American- you are not even a Christian: you are a hypocrite.

Maybe I should burn a pile of Christian bibles on 9/11 to protest the hypocrisy and lies that have taken a life of their own. It would also protest the religious bigotry in this country, which is at least as bad as the racial bigotry that everyone is always up in arms about. Demonizing the followers of a religion you know nothing about is despicable. While most Christians are good people, it seems like small groups of them are always the ones perpetuating strife, intolerance, and mayhem in this country.

Twisted, biased, and outright lying slander tirades on Youtube and right wing websites do not make you knowledgeable about a subject. If you are a real American with an open mind, then I challenge you to actually read their book. The Muslim bible is actually pretty short compared to the Christian one- about as long as a novel. Below is a link to it, and there are many others if you want to compare. You can also order it from Amazon or get one at any large bookstore.
