I’ve been on hiatus for a while now.  Not motivated to write a single word, publicly anyway. 

I have been enraged enough to start typing though.  September 11 is coming upon us again.  But this year, some haters, publicity seekers or whatever you wish to call them are turning this day of mourning into a revengeful, spiteful, hate fest against them (whomever them may be).

The burning of the Koran because Al Qaeda has chosen to hide behind their religion to spread hate and fear is about as useful as burning the Bible because the KKK hides behind their religion to do the same thing.

And the sheer fact that people can not or will not decipher the difference is exactly what’s wrong with the world today.

There are some bad eggs in everything.  I personally know Muslims, and they are as loving and peace oriented as some Christians that I know.

If you want to make a statement about who we as Americans are, spend September 11 volunteering, having coffee with a Muslim, or praying for those who are lost in hate and fear.  And by all means, light a candle or two in the memory of the lives that were physically, mentally, and spiritually lost on that day.

Most importantly, get over yourselves people!!!!!!!

    thank you for the comment, and for sticking around!!!!! NO! We’re not going to honor the lives that were lost that day in such a hate filled manner!!! Stuffing my face with pizza all day would be more productive!

    It’s so good to see you writing again even though it’s this awful situation that has inspired you to come out of ‘hiatus’! 🙂 I totally agree with you on this issue. I too personally know Muslims and without exception they are all peace loving, law abiding citizens who just want to get on with their lives as most people do. One of the best jobs I ever had was working for a Muslim and during our many daily conversations he made me realise that he knew as much about Christianity as I did, maybe even more!

    This so called religious man who wants to incite hatred by burning the Quran says that he has prayed to God on this subject……his God is not the loving and forgiving God that I pray to, and so I take exception to the fact that he calls himself a Christian! Just like Al Qaeda and the KKK he is hiding behind his so called religion to spread hate. I think if he goes ahead with this, he should be arrested for hate crime! I’m sure that if this was happening in Canada (although I can’t possibly imagine that), he may have already been formerly cautioned.

    Good post Gia! 🙂
