    Religious temples of all faiths have been around for years.
    I passed this place while vacationing in July and was amazed at the size and opulence.
    Check it out.

    The Vraj Hindu Temple is located in Schuylkill County, in Eastern Pennsylvania, USA. It is a multi-million dollar temple or haveli covering 300 acres.

    What I am saying is, look around and you'll see churches, temples, synagogues, all faiths, all sizes.
    We are a nation with the freedom of religion.

    This is one of the things that our nation is based on. Freedom of religion. In the past, Mormons have been victims of savage behavior, Catholics have been victims of abuse, and I think it was all done out of fear. I don't want my own personal feelings to succumb to such fear. That kind of fear is dangerous because it becomes hatred. History shows us that the Catholic and Protestant churches committed atrocities against innocent people. I do not like the Islamic religion at all and I don't trust them but I cannot lump all Muslims together as dangerous people. And as a nation that allows freedom of religion, what do we do to stop them?

    Well, then that is one way they can be stopped. That would be giving us a reason to stop them if they try to act out such beliefs.

    I am sure there are good Muslims in the world , but how do you know who they are ? It's like in Vietnam how did you know who the Vietcong were ? On Sept. 11 in New York there is a Lebanese Muslim area in the Astoria section of Queens , They were dancing in the streets on Sept. 11 , it was on the news and in all the papers , they were celebrating , these are the same people who walk along side you everyday . So like I said how do you know who is a Peaceful Muslim and who is a terrorist .

    That is exactly right ... you don't know who is good or bad.
    Case in point is to look at some of the problems encountered with our churches right now. Years of abuse and pedophilia, theft of funds, etc.
    There will always be an element of people that seem to come from the dark side of humanity.

    The older I get the more I want to give thought to how people should be treated with respect and dignity, until each person ( not a group ) has proven otherwise.

    Finally, my Irish heritage allows me to understand that discrimination comes in all forms and is against many people over time. My Great Grandfather found just that when he emigrated to the US in 1853. He found signs that read "No Irish Need Apply" ... couldn't find work, other then the most dangerous and low paid jobs, and suffered while attempting to make a better life for himself.

    We won't change people's religion, nor will they change ours.

    I don't like what, "in the name of allah", the Muslims have done, in fact I despise the cowardliness of killing unsuspecting and innocent people. But it cannot be the entire Muslim population that feels that way.
    Let's hope not anyway.

    I will now step down my soapbox.

    I could not have said it better. I think what makes it difficult for most of us is that we cannot forget the image of those jets crashing into the world trade center and the idea of all those innocent people who lost their livesl

    I'm sure my concerns are unfounded.

    As the Clarion Project explains, mosques have been springing up all over the U.S. in recent years. As many as 80 percent of the mosques in America have been built in the last 12 years – since the 2001 terror attacks.
    “A large majority of mosques in the United States are led by Wahhabi clerics,” the Project explains. “Wahhabism is an extreme brand of Islam practiced dominantly in Saudi Arabia. According to Muslim estimates, up to 80 percent of mosques in the U.S. are owned, operated and led by Wahhabis.
    “These radical mosques often promote the installation of Sharia law, an extreme ideology that considers ‘non-believers’ to be infidels. According to Wahhabis, jihad or support of jihad is a Muslim duty. They believe that suicide bombers and martyrs are worthy of the highest praise and reward. And radicals are anticipating the day when an Islamic state will one day span the U.S.”
