I just watched Pat Robertson say that Islam is about “World Dominance” and that building a Mosque near the World Trade Center is like Islam planting a flag and gloating in the face of 9/1 victims. Robertson is the latest Republican nutbag to spew hate. To think this fool tried to cleanup his comments by saying it’s ok if Muslims want to build a Mosque in other parts of New York but not in downtown Manhattan.
Pat seems to conveniently forget about all the Christian Missions all over the world whose main goal is to spread Christianity throughout the world. There are many that will say that is a form of “World Dominance”. Here is the Mission Statement of Catholic Missions from http://www.catholic.com/home/about.asp
Catholic Answers is an apostolate dedicated to serving Christ by bringing the fullness of Catholic truth to the world. We help good Catholics become better Catholics, bring former Catholics “home,” and lead non-Catholics into the fullness of the faith. We explain Catholic truth, equip the faithful to live fully the sacramental life, and assist them in spreading the Good News.
This sounds like wanting to spread a particular message to the world, “dedicated to serving Christ by bringing the fullness of Catholic truth to the world.”
Pat Robertson is what is dangerous with our country; I hope people see thru this phony nutbag for what he really is!
I am a Catholic, but I realize and understand you show respect for other religious beliefs even if they go against yours!
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!!
