This is a response to building a mosque near ground zero.

I understand why some people are completely against the building of this mosque; the Twin Towers were bombed in the name of their god. But aren’t most of the critics being hypocrites? The only people who can say anything about them not building the mosque there are atheists.

Almost every religion is filled with so much hate against someone. Some Christians believe homosexuals should be killed: “And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” Leviticus 20:13.

But does a homosexual couple start shouting and making a big deal when yet another church is built down the road?

I have a simple solution to all of this: Practice religion in your own home, devote a room to your god, and I guarantee no one will make a big deal of it.
