It is refreshing to see an article which attempts to look at things from a different perspective.
Articles like these are important, particularly in times like the ones we are living in now.
Ultimately we are smart enough to figure out what is "right or wrong".
If Muslims are part of our community, it is imperative that we also understand their values and beliefs.
We might surprisingly find that they too strive to attain spiritually what people of other religions desire.
I dont think you are getting the point here. We could look at other versus of the bible for the same message. Should we? Is there any doubt of the message that Jesus preached?
Luke 9:52-56: "...they did not receive him...And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village."
Reading all these comments one cannot imagine how ignorant some people are.Jesus preached love and tolerance and that is what made Him great and inspired billions to embrace his message of hope. I have not come across one Muslim who does not respect Jesus.
Instead of spreading innuendos such as Muslims trying to impose Sharia law (pretty much like Obama being a Muslim born in Kenya) we should perhaps try to understand what the building of this Center will mean for future generations of Muslims.
If the center provides education in a healthy environment then this is a big plus for the community.
Lets try to get our facts right before we voice our opinion.
Remember knowledge is power!!
I certainly appreciate your attempting to help allay concerns regarding the new Islamic Center and school being built on Gunbarrel road.
