funny. Fox makes Jon’s job too easy… but yeah it has been relatively clear to me for a while that the Xtians want the state to be a vehicle for their mythology and only jump on board with the constitutional ideas when they suit their purposes. Islamics are no better or course as somewhere in Iran women are awaiting stoning over being accused of having sex, so it seems religion stands above state, human rights, and good sense for them too.
I guess I appreciate Jon’s message of tolerance but really I would like to see the spread of any mythology impeded by any means necessary. If Xtians and islamics bicker over where they build their brainwashing centers, it may have the net positive effect of fewer of them being built…

    “I would like to see the spread of any mythology impeded by any means necessary”

    That’s a dangerous thought. Taking away freedoms won’t do any of us any good. When and where does it stop?

Stewart’s critique is not pro-Islamist, rather it is anti-bigotry.

Regarding the Ground Zero location; How do you explain to the victims of 9-11, their family and friends that the religious group that provided support for the attacks now has a building across from the site of their success, serving as a beacon of pride and a place of recruitment for the evil demanded by their leadership, supposedly in the name of their god?

Additionally, Fox is correct in that the ultimate goal for the Muslims would be instituting Sharia law which would only compound our problems, as we all ready have enough bullshit Christian laws to contend with. This last part Stewart correctly points out.

The problems Europe is having will continue to grow here as is. We should not accommodate them and invite our destruction.

You explain it to them by reminding them that this is fucking America and the Bill of Rights applies to everyone regardless of religion. Moreover, it’s not across the street from ground zero and it’s a fucking community center.

And yes, the goal of Islam is the spread of Islam and the institution of Sharia law. The goal of Judaism is the spread of Judaism and the institution of Mosaic law. The goal of Christianity is the spread of Christianity and the institution of Canonical law. And none of them will ever be successful in this country unbless we throw out the constitution. So let them all build their stupid fucking buildings and shut the fuck up.

ChristopherTK · July 13, 2010 at 6:21 pm


I should “shut the fuck up” because you say so, while you seemingly fail to realize that as the number of Muslims grow in this country their political base grows with it. Then, one day, we may find ourselves in the minority. The new Muslim majority can determine at anytime that our Bill of rights don’t mean anything and that the Constitution can be discarded at anytime of their choosing. So yeah, “none of them will ever be successful in this country unless we throw out the constitution.” Only it wouldn’t be us,but rather them!

I don’t know where you live Matt, but I spent time at the Bridgeview mosque learning long before 9-11. I went to school in a community with a high percentage of Muslims and I knew and know many personally. I can say without a doubt, they do not seek to maintain a secular U.S. nation. Though not likely in your lifetime, you may want to think of future generations before you are so quick to accommodate our destruction.

I see like this:

I think it bad taste to build a mosque up on Ground Zero. Why? Fanatical Muslims blew it up and for many Americans, one cannot separate between extreme Islam and moderately extreme Islam(pun intended) because Islam as far as I am concerned, more times than not, is an extreme religion so it is hard to for maybe some Americans to find a ‘peaceful’ Allah existing with their ‘peaceful’ Jesus. Now of course this is non-PC and maybe for some irrational thinking that hey people are gonna fucking pissed to see a Mosque dedicated to the Prophet Mohammad when maybe their families wrongly were murdered, casualties of Islam’s War on the West, whatever you want to call it. I think it is ignorant to just blow it off as Christian extremism bitching about something that actually makes sense. Natural conflict is all I see and now a Jesus huger going psycho again. If I would hear of people making complaints in regards to the fact that a mosque is going up on Ground Zero, ya know…there’s nothing to really say against that.

Nevertheless, I believe that law is blind/amoral and ‘a-considerate’ and I think its a fact of life. If little Tommy that got patted too much and too deep by Father Pat has to walk by an upcoming Roman Catholic social program, new building or whatever, then people need to face up that reality isn’t ideal in the world of free-expression of religious views. If a female that was a victim of the Mormon’s church polygamy beliefs have to walk down and see numerous of LDS churches.

If people are so scared of Islam, people need to remember that we don’t answer to Hamas, or Mohammad but we answer to our secular law answers to the Constitution which also automatically means, that the law does not go with special treatment to anyone, or at least it shouldn’t. Let’s look at Christianity as example. The empire that Christianity once was, and we can I think at least, firmly state that humanity has controlled how much Christianity plays in with politics now…the same would apply to Islam. So by allowing a social conflict to occur does not mean it is weakening itself to the lunacies of Islam. It means it gives the same freedoms that it gives to everyone else.

Major Grammatical Correction
“Natural conflict is all I see and now a Jesus huger going psycho again”
should be…
Natural conflict is all I see and not a Jesus huger going psycho again.

I know there are others but this was a huge one because it changed the point. My apologies for the grammatical errors.

Damn, I wold so love to see Stewart and Hannity get into a formal debate. The latter would never do it. He’d get torn apart by Stewart.

    Godless Girl · January 20, 2011 at 10:18 am

    But his audience would think he won because he would yell the loudest!
