Pope John Paul II wasn't afraid to bend to others' sensitivities.
The Nazi death camps weren’t a Christian act but the 911 attacks were jihadist holy war against America.
It is hard to find anyone in NY who speaks English, NY puts their blessings on the one’s who want us dead.
This is not at all the same. Neither the nuns nor the Catholic Church was attacking the Jews; in fact, this particular order lost several members (Jewish converts) to the Nazis. Many religious orders in France, Italy and Holland sheltered Jews; the Catholic Church gave refuge to Jews and certain Catholic countries, such as Spain, took in large numbers of refugees and protected other Jews in their embassies.
The Catholic Church did not attack the Jews. The Muslims did attack the US, and they still want to conquer us.
This mosque does not belong there.
The article is a poor analogy and not relevant to the topic at hand.
Let's be frank here, the Mosque/Center, which is funded by untraced cash, will be a center of contact for future terrorists/rable-rousers that the FBI, CIA, etc... will have to infiltrate to keep an eye on things.
He got that part right. Carmelites were being murdered en masse by pagan utopians 150 years before Auschwitz -- nor did Nazis shrink from martyring them as well, including at Auschwitz.
JPII caved to pressure by groups seeking to "own" the moral high ground of all who suffered at Nazi hands. Not his finest hour.
We know 6 million Jews were murdered in these camps but there were 7 or 8 million non Jews killed there too, I see nothing wrong with Catholic nuns on the site of these concentration camps.
However I feel strongly that these Muslims wanting to build a mosque at ground zero has nothing to do with wanting to comfort the souls of the )/11 victims. What greater insult than to have the WTC destroyed by muslims and then bulding a Mosque there. The idiot politicians of which frigging Bloomberg is the greatest would sell their own souls instead of standing up for America.
Or, occasionally, to trample them. The former actor was a bit of a ham all his life and never lost his weakness for playing to the house. He had a healthy ego and wasn't always shy about backing his own agenda.
I have known several Eastern European Catholics who were imprisoned in Nazi concentration camps. One recently died, age 95 — only survivor of it, from a well-to-do Polish Catholic family.
Moderate Muslims are a figment of the imagination, like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.
If the Cordoba Intiative really wants to bridge the cultural divide, they wouldn’t be building at Ground Zero.
Number of Churches and Synagogues in Mecca: 0.
What do you do when people who hate this country run it and keep getting re-elected?
