50 Fools

Why do we allow 50 people to represent the entire United States?

That's hardly a gnat in this nation of 3o7 million yet our media has pasted this grain size group on every newspaper in America. And now it's spread all over the world.

I'll bet every reader of this blog knows exactly whom I'm referring to when I associate it with the upcoming anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001.

Yes...it's the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville Florida.

My very soul demands a statement on this group as I can no longer sit passively by when hate groups inflame and incite violence against others in the world.

The attack on the World Trade Center in 2001 was indeed a tragedy of unimaginable proportions. There were people from many nationalities killed on this day in America.

Some were Muslims.

There are also Muslims serving in our military and dying on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan today.

Although our Constitution demands "freedom of speech" as an ordinance for a functional government, I'm ashamed when I see 50 people allowing us to be smeared with such bad ink.

They don't represent me.

The ignorance in this country is absolutely astounding at times.

Rapid communication gives idiots like him an audience of other idiots. Tea-party members with nothing between their ears manipulated by multi-millionaires.

I could go on...but won't.

I couldn't agree more, John. Of course, this ignorance is everywhere. It is the same ignorance that causes some people to blame immigrants for all the ills of this country, for example. But to insult the entire Muslim world because of the actions of a few is not a Christian thing to do, and Christians here are just as ashamed about what is being done in the name of their faith by these 50 sick minded Americans.
