A counter-proposal for the Mosque at Ground Zero
WDTPRS ^ | 8/16/2010 | Fr John Zuhlsdorf

Posted on 08/16/2010 3:30:47 PM PDT by markomalley

I have been following the debate over the building of a mosque at Ground Zero in Manhattan.

I have a counter proposal.

Let us build a chapel dedicated to Sts. Nunilo and Alodia next to the mosque.

Saints Nunilo and Alodia were a pair of 9th c. virgin martyrs in Huesca, Spain.  They were born to a Muslim father and Christian mother.  However, they chose their mother’s Christianity.


And so during the Emirate of Abd ar-Rahman II it came to pass that in these little girls were first put in a brothel and then were executed as apostates according to Sharia law.

Their feast day is 22 October.

I think their relics are in the Cathedral of Pamplona, having been translated a couple times.

I heard a guy is planning to build a gay bar right across the street. To cater to gay muslims. Can you believe it?!

My ancestors fought at the Battle of Lepanto in 1571 AD and helped free many Christian slaves. Islam has not changed since then.

Sadly all those Notre Dame abortion and Union Catholics have no clue about Catholic history.

If you make room for the Catholic Church next to the mosque, then you need to also accomodate the other 30,000+ christian denominations and the Jews. Yes, Jews died in the Twin Towers. The mosque has to go.

Greg Gutfeld, the tv personality, is behind it. I think it’s hysterical, and you better believe the customers are out there. Homosexuality is endemic in Moslem societies.

We need a strip club, a dog kennel, and and a pork-only BBQ joint as well.

I have a counter proposal. Let us build a chapel dedicated to Sts. Nunilo and Alodia next to the mosque.

Technically it doesn't do anything. The camel's nose will be still under the tent, and the camel will find a way to displace unwanted neighbors just by its presence there. The ROP is not exactly a "stealth" religion.

Besides, the whole point of the mosque there is to signify the victory. It doesn't matter what is nearby; the only thing that matters is that the mosque is there.

If the mosque goes up, yes, the chapel would be perfect next door. Saints Nunilo and Alodia, please pray for US!

Sounds like a plan, Greg Gutfield’s gay bar on one side, this chapel on the other.

A hooters across the street and we are good to go!

My brother was stationed in Dubai for a short time (although I’m sure it didn’t seem short to him...) He was told by a local that ‘women are for breeding, boys are for pleasure.’

So yeah, they’re out there, I just think they don’t go sashaying all over town. haha.

Hard to believe with the ugly burkas they make the women wear. Gays have better sensibilities than that!

I think the Muslims should cancel their plans to build a mosque near ground zero out of respect for this country and it's religious heritage. This would show that they do not stand with the terrorists and would truly like to foster understanding between the two cultures.

If not then it will be obvious that they are our enemy masquerading as a religion in order to take advantage of us.

Putting a mosque and a church next to each is just asking for trouble. Sounds nice on paper, but, no, I’ll pass.

People praying the Rosary halted the attack of the Moslems on Europe at Lepanto, so continue to pray the Rosary to halt the building of this mosque.
