A Stab In the Eye of America, With Swimming Pool To Boot

by

From the good-hearted folks at Stop Islamicization of America

Plans to build a glitzy new community center that includes a mosque two
blocks from Ground Zero are causing hysteria among people like the wingnuts of
Stop Islamicization of America, who worry that terrorists will come and
use the gym, swimming pool and arts center before plotting our downfall.
The American Society for Muslim Advancement sees it as a healing
recognition that "Islam is an American religion." The wingnuts see it as
a "monster mosque" that insults "any decent American." Who obviously
knows there's no freedom of religion here, yes?
