Muslims need a place to pray???
I believe Muslims should be provided with a place to pray as soon as they provide Christians, Jews and other denominations with a place to pray in predominantly Muslim countries; how’s that for logic? By the way, one minor detail; this place to pray for non-Muslims cannot be subjected to suicide bombers. Sensible people do not want their lives ended prematurely.
Personally, I couldn’t care less for prayer, which is about as worthless as tits on a bull (for those of you out there who might be confused, bulls don’t have mammary glands, therefore their tits don’t produce milk and are therefore basically useless – just like prayer).
Anyway, why is it that we, the United States, need to cater to the whole world; a world that basically poo-poos on us (to be polite)? Since when have Muslims become such upstanding citizens that this country owes them a place to pray??? TGO
I agree with most of the above. Anyway, why do the various religions need to build such palaces of grandeur to pray in? Now, every time I visit a Roman Catholic cathedral, full of stunning marble and fabulous artworks, I can appreciate the magnificence and beauty of the architecture and art, but at the same time, I can’t help thinking of the blood shed by millions over thousands of years, during the pillaging of the needed resources, not to mention the slave labour! If I believed in prayer, I would say a prayer for them. Instead, I think of them and contemplate the brutality in the name of religion. St Peter’s in The Vatican, for instance, should be an embarrassment to all Catholics the world over, for its opulent extravagance. Let’s not just criticise the Muslims here, think of the Christian crusades as an example. Raping and pillaging licensed by the Catholic Church, and in ‘God’s Name’. No better or no worse than the suicide bombing of millions of innocents in ‘Allah’s Name’.
One thing I will say about the Catholic Church, they believe that women and girls should have the same rights to a good education as boys. I know I did.
