Minarets and Temple Domes and Church Spires

Food for thought

There is an article on the BBC website titled, “Vatican and Muslims condemn Swiss minaret ban vote.” With the sub-heading, “Religious leaders across the world have criticised Switzerland’s referendum vote to ban the building of minarets.”

Which makes me wonder why the religious leaders around the world don’t have a standing condemnation of numerous Islamic countries A) for being Islamic countries and not secular nations and treating, by law, followers of other religions with supreme inequity and B) not allowing the building of temples and churches in their own nation?

Is this integration only one way?

And if so, is the ulterior motive behind such expansion to increase Islamic presence everywhere and diminish other religion’s presence in Islamic countries?

Obama’s “real” agenda

Mr. Krauthammer, in his Washington Post article titled, Obama’s Ultimate Agenda writes, “Obama has far different ambitions. His goal is to rewrite the American social compact, to recast the relationship between government and citizen. He wants government to narrow the nation’s income and anxiety gaps. Soak the rich for reasons of revenue and justice. Nationalize health care and federalize education to grant all citizens of all classes the freedom from anxiety about health care and college that the rich enjoy. And fund this vast new social safety net through the cash cow of a disguised carbon tax.

Obama is a leveler. He has come to narrow the divide between rich and poor. For him the ultimate social value is fairness. Imposing it upon the American social order is his mission. ”

And to that I say……ummmmm…..and what’s wrong with that?

I urge you to read the full article. For, nowhere does he mention a logical, cogent thought as to why that is bad for the country? Which, is of course nothing but the people of America and it is indeed the people of America that Obama, even according to the incredulous Mr. Krauthammer, is trying to support.

Dyed-in-wool dogmatics like him belong in comics not in newspapers. Somehow to allow equal opportunity, education, energy self-reliance, and relief from anxiety regarding health coverage, food and shelter is implied to be evil!
