When Did Liberals Become So Concerned About Religion?

By Idaho Conservative Blogger
The Ground Zero Mosque issue has created quite a divide in the country. Most agree that legally it’s a non-issue. The divide seems to be appropriateness, many Conservatives think it’s outrageously inappropriate to build the Mosque so close to Ground Zero, and those, many on the Left who say the Mosque builders should be able to practice their religion anywhere they want.

I ask, when is the last time Liberals championed so passionately religious rights?

Are they not the ones always screaming about the separation of church and state?

Where are Liberals when Christmas is attacked?

Not too long ago in a Texas classroom, children were told to draw a tracing of their foot, and then put a message on the drawing. One ittle girl wrote “Jesus Loves Me” on hers. The child’s teacher ripped he tracing off the board. “Don’t you ever do this again,” she said as little girl burst into tears.

How about in a Plano, Texas, classroom, a teacher told students not to write “Merry Christmas” on greeting cards for soldiers in Iraq because it might offend someone.  They were even forbidden to say “Merry Christmas” to their classmates.

In a New York school, the halls were decked with menorahs and Kwanzaa candles. When a father asked why there was no Christmas tree, the principal said, “Oh, we’re trying to make sure we don’t offend people.”

Where are Liberals when the American Flag is burned?

Where are Liberals when the bible is burned?

Where were Liberals when The Federal Department of Homeland Security issued a report entitled 'Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate' that labeled conservative Christians extremists and potential terrorists."

Where were Liberals when an activist judge ordered a homeschool mom in New Hampshire to stop homeschooling her daughter because the little girl 'reflected too strongly' her mother's Christian faith."

Where were Liberals when the Police called to East Jessamine Middle School in Lexington, Ky., to stop 8th graders from praying during their lunch break for a student whose mother was tragically killed."

Where were Liberals when HBO's program 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' aired an episode where the main actor urinates on painting of Jesus. When confronted HBO would not apologize."

In The Hill this week Eboo Patel, Founder and President of Interfaith Youth Core group from Chicago writes,

In America, we don’t discriminate against people of any religion

In America, we will not be divided by faith.

In America, everyone has a place.

In America, we are better together.

How naive.

Michelle Malkin writes in a recent post at Townhall.comThe Eternal Flame of Muslim Outrage

Shhhhhhh, we're told. Don't protest the Ground Zero mosque. Don't burn a Koran. It'll imperil the troops. It'll inflame tensions. The "Muslim world" will "explode" if it does not get its way, warns sharia-peddling imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. Pardon my national security-threatening impudence, but when is the "Muslim world" not ready to "explode"?

At the risk of provoking the ever-volatile Religion of Perpetual

Outrage, let us count the little-noticed and forgotten ways.

In 1994, Muslims threatened German supermodel Claudia Schiffer with death after she wore a Karl Lagerfeld-designed dress printed with a saying from the Koran.

In 1997, outraged Muslims forced Nike to recall 800,000 shoes because they claimed the company's "Air" logo looked like the Arabic script for "Allah."

In 1998, another conflagration spread over Unilever's ice cream logo -- which Muslims claimed looked like "Allah" if read upside-down and backward (can't recall what they said it resembled if you viewed it with 3D glasses).
Even more explosively, in 2002, an al-Qaida-linked jihadist cell plotted to blow up Bologna, Italy's Church of San Petronio because it displayed a 15th century fresco depicting Mohammed being tormented in the ninth circle of Hell

That same year, Nigerian Muslims stabbed, bludgeoned or burned to death 200 people in protest of the Miss World beauty pageant -- which they considered an affront to Allah.

In 2005, British Muslims got all hot and bothered over a Burger King ice cream cone container whose swirly-texted label resembled, you guessed it, the Arabic script for "Allah."

In 2007, Muslims combusted again in Sudan after an infidel elementary school teacher innocently named a classroom teddy bear "Mohammed."

Protesters chanted, "Kill her, kill her by firing squad!" and "No tolerance -- execution!" She was arrested, jailed and faced 40 lashes for blasphemy before being freed after eight days. Not wanting to cause further inflammation, the teacher rushed to apologize: "I have great respect for the Islamic religion and would not knowingly offend anyone, and I am sorry if I caused any distress."

The eternal flame of Muslim outrage was lit a long, long time ago.

Now I am not bashing the Muslim religion, there are certainly religious nuts in every camp. I just don’t understand why Liberals are so quick to defend, excuse, pander and support Muslim religious freedoms, claiming tolerance while at the same time fighting to suppress others.

Maybe I do understand, Despite what President Obama says, America is a Christian nation and that drives Liberals crazy.

Yes! Yes! The Liberals love religion, any religion, except OUR religion, the Christian religion. Every single one of the founding fathers was a devout American Conservative Christian. Not a single one of the current Obama administration members is. Wonder why they're so jealous? They'll support any horrid religion just to whip the Christian roots out from under us.

And furthermore, Liberal hypocracy in terms of religion is a threat to ALL religions, even the ones they seem to defend, because they pit ALL true worshippers of God against each other to achieve american Atheism!
