Tolerance

I'm usually a very tolerant person. I've tried to teach my children the same trait, and also instill in them that we are all created equal, but...there comes a time when tolerance isn't a virtue, more a task.

Why, of all the available land in the U.S. do the Muslims want to build a mosque at ground zero? No one is disputing their right to their religion, although I think we have bent over backwards for this one. We are just questioning the sense in establishing a mosque in the very place where the radical side of the religion caused the death of so many innocent people strictly because the Koran tells them to kill all who don't abide by the rules of their belief. I think this is the only religion that abdicates death as a punishment.  Do I agree they should be allowed to build at ground zero?  Hell NO!

This came in an email today, and I think this person (unknown to me) has the right idea. If we are going to be tolerant...then let's be tolerant to everyone.

I am appalled that so many of my friends are against the mosque near Ground Zero. We should allow it in order to promote tolerance.

I also propose that two gay nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque to promote tolerance in the mosque. We could call them "The Turban Cowboy" and "You Mecca Me Hot".

Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork and have an open barbeque with pork ribs and across the street a very daring lingerie store called " Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret.” And next door in flashing lights open an Adult Toy Shop. I think for the purpose of tolerance we should build accordingly around the Mosque.

Absolutely. And you know the construction workers are refusing to build the mosque. Good. But if they do, then I say that proposal for other buildings should be included, too. This is America...the land of diversity. If we can be 'tolerant' of the mosque people, then they should be 'tolerant' of the rest of our society.
