In response to Justin Seabe, “Imam’s remarks not controversial” (CT, Sept. 8), suggesting that radical Islam attacked America because we don’t mind our own business, I have to ask: What about the rest of the world where radical Islam carries out their atrocities and the centuries before America was even a country?
What about the atrocities and killings against their own people if they don’t praise Allah and practice Sharia law?
We have a president who sat in a church for 20 years and could not recognize that Rev. Wright was a racist radical who hates America. We have a president who took a few days to respond to the Ft. Hood massacre and still won’t claim it an act of war by radical Islam.
Why should we have any confidence that the Mosque at Ground Zero isn’t another place to teach the same radical ideology Islam has been spreading and practicing for centuries? Where does the money come from? Why should taxpayers pay for President Barack Obama’s goodwill tour? If they think it’s so important to spread goodwill, why can’t they come up with the funding?
Do we send priests to Rome to collect money for churches?
