It is such a shame that the country of America is going through a phase of religious turmoil with regard to the Muslim community and their building of a mosque near to where the events of 2001 occurred. The land of the free, as it is known, is free no more. The country of America – always known for its religious tolerance – is now in turmoil as factions of society denounce the Muslim faith and its people. As with every religion there are factions that break away and turn against what they once believed in. In the Christian faith this is represented by the many different churches and ways of worship. Nothing, though, has been as vehement as the attack against the Muslims and their faith.
Millions upon millions of Muslims decry what a few people in their faith do in bombing, killing, and other such atrocities. The God of that minority is the God of hate and resembles nothing of the true God. The majority of those who follow Mohammed revere this energy so highly that they would never dream of doing anything which would cause offense or hurt to this energy. They live a simple life most of the time and are at peace in their faith. Look into the eyes of a woman in a burka and you will see the eyes of a woman at peace. Yes, they have a mosque instead of a church and pray on the ground instead of in pews, but they worship just like the majority of Christians – with reverence for God.
It is sad to see the events taking place at this time in the USA, but it is the fear within those who are not Muslim that is creating the situation. As I stated previously, the land of the free is free no more. What a shame and what a waste of energy all of the hatred and anger is. What could those people do constructively with the energy they are wasting in doing that? I do not support any faith or religion, for that is the choice of each human being. If one chooses to worship within a faith or belief, they should be allowed to do so with love – not with hatred, violence, and fear. Perhaps one day humanity will see its actions and this will be no more. Fear will no longer be an issue with humanity.
