Currently there are many Americans who are vehemently opposing the building of a Mosque near the site of the World Trade Towers. I have been watching the news and it sickens me to see people with their hateful signs and hateful words. Freedom of speech is not hate speech.
After 9/11 all believers of Islam have been thrown into the same radical ring. Funny how after the Oklahoma City bombings Catholics were not ostracized as Timothy McVeigh was Catholic.
There is such an arrogance amongst many that if someone does not believe in their God or their way of life then they are wrong. We need to start educating ourselves on other religions and cultures and embrace the differences.
I think that once we do that we will see that we are not that different after all.
