  1. When I first saw the head line I started laughing. Its not funny, but how crazy are these Americans? Islam isn’t a religion? We know the American educations system isn’t up to standard but really.

    it is beyond me why people object to a Muslim place of worship and why they don’t want a Muslim cemetery????? Its not like its going to be a noisy bunch of drunks at the local bar. some one ought to tell these people in Tenn. people in a cemetery are dead and make for very quiet neighbours.

    Americans ought to sit down and read their constitution. It gives people their freedom of religion.

    • I agree. Perhaps they are too ignorant to understand that a cemetery is for burying the dead, and Islam is a religion that recognizes and accepts Christianity as a religion, and believes the Bible was from the same God they worship. It is sad that at this day and age, and access to information, we still have ignorant segments of people in our nation, who make fools of themselves, spewing hate and ignorance for the most idiotic reasons, and unwilling to listen to learned scholars in our nation, who keep explaining that Islam is a religion, and that the majority of Muslims in the world, are peace loving.
      It is strange but many of these crazy teapots have that same look on their faces, one that shows hatred and meanness for all.

  2. I’ll bet these same Tea Party fanatics get angry when Christians are attacked on religious grounds:

    “Since the 1990s, scores of Christians have been convicted for desecrating the Koran or blaspheming against the Prophet Mohammed.

    While most of them have been sentenced to death by the lower courts, many sentences have been overturned due to lack of evidence. Sawan Masih now has 30 days to appeal.”

    Christian mobs attacking Muslims, Muslim mobs attacking Christians – it’s not about religion, it’s about gaining political power by creating and channeling fear and hate in the general population. It’s an old trick, but it still works depressingly well.

  3. Idiots! This country was founded upon and guarantees freedom of and from religion. The only TRUE Americans are the Native Americans we butchered. If these idiots don’t like it, go back to your ancestors’ home and isolate yourselves there.
