Ground Zero Mosque – Right but Wrong

Posted by PITHOCRATES - September 15th, 2010

All this talk about them, the Muslim community, having the right to build a mosque near Ground Zero reminds me of a scene from the movie Monty Python’s Life of Brian.  One of the men wants to be a woman.  So he can have babies.  Of course, a man can’t have babies.  But a man can have the RIGHT to have babies.  The dialogue went something like this:

Rogers: Why are you always on about women, Stan?

Stan: I want to be one.

Reg: What?

Stan: I want to be a woman. From now on, I want you all to call me Loretta.

Reg: What?

Loretta: It’s my right as a man.

Judith: Well, why do you want to be Loretta, Stan?

Loretta: I want to have babies.

Reg: You want to have babies?!

Loretta: It’s every man’s right to have babies if he wants them.

Reg: But…you can’t have babies!

Loretta: Don’t you oppress me!

Reg: I’m not oppressing you, Stan. You haven’t got a womb.  Where is the fetus going to gestate? You’re going to keep it in a box?

Loretta: Sniff.

Judith: Here, I’ve got an idea. Suppose you agree that he can’t actually have babies, not having a womb, which is nobody’s fault, not even the Romans’, but that he can have the right to have babies.

Rogers: Good idea, Judith. We shall fight the oppressors for your right to have babies, brother. Sister! Sorry.

Reg: What’s the point?

Rogers: What?

Reg: What’s the point of fighting for his right to have babies, when he can’t have babies?

Rogers: It is symbolic of our struggle against oppression.

Reg: Symbolic of his struggle against reality.

The people who are still debating the Ground Zero mosque are having their own struggle against reality.

Yes, Islam is a religion of peace.  America holds dear our right to religious freedom.  And Muslim Americans are Americans first.  But you can’t build a mosque near Ground Zero, whatever you call it.  Yeah, you can call it outreach to the Muslim community.  But the Muslim community it reaches out to are those few who pervert this great religion of peace.  The jihad bunch.  Who come, conquer and build mosques.  To enshrine their victories over the infidel. 

If you build a mosque near Ground Zero, some may see it as outreach.  But our enemies, those few who pervert, will see it as the ultimate American humiliation.  It will give them strength.  And it will recruit more to the cause.  How could it not?  The greatest ‘battlefield’ success against the world’s most powerful nation?  You know they relish and savor that victory.  And they do.  They want that mosque there.  They need that mosque there.  For the glory of Islam.  To mark the day that they (the few who pervert) brought America to her knees.  Spread fear throughout the country.  Emptied American airspace.  And made people afraid to open their mail or drink their tap water. 

I, as well as most of rational thinking people, would rather fight for Stan/Loretta’s right to have babies.
