Dead pig found at Houston mosque
The Houston Chronicle ^ | 5 December 2012 | Anita Hassan

Posted on 12/06/2012 7:50:29 AM PST by MeneMeneTekelUpharsin

The small, black pig lay dead on its side upon the wooden deck, a deep gash on the side of its belly.

That's what a congregant at the Islamic Outreach Center saw Tuesday evening when he and a handful of other worshippers arrived for nightly prayers. Worshippers also found blood stains near the door of the Harris County mosque.

"It looked like someone was trying to take it inside, but it was locked," said Ilyas Choudry, who helps run the center.

At the end of a news conference on Wednesday about the incident, mosque officials also discovered what appeared to be animal intestines hanging from the facility's front gate.The intestines may have come from the pig, which appeared to be cut open.

Mosque officials believe someone may have left the pig at the Cypress-area center as an act of hate. They called the Harris County Sheriff's Office, which is investigating.

Comments are not available on the story at the Chronicle website. Wonder why? And, this is not news. I certainly don't care whether a pig has been left at the mosque or anywhere for that matter. It's simply not news.

There is a way to beat Islam within our borders, this isn’t it...

In India, when Muslims want to create riots/seek attention, they play same game, drop parts of pig and claim this was done by Hindus and start riots on Friday.

The pig appears to have been killed Halal style.

Should have just taken a portable compressed tank and an auto body paint gun and misted about a gallon of pig’s blood everywhere...it would never come out.

This is just PLAIN awful!

To remedy the situation, I'd suggest a prompt pig funeral at the site, with full honors. AKA the earlier news today about police presence at Chicago gang funerals, there should be full spiffed-up uniformed police in the Sunday finest to mark the funeral and direct traffic. All friends and acquaintances and relations of this swine should be in attendance. Finally, I hope the governor sees fit to have all state flags at half mast for the next month in full sympathy for this tragedy...

I’m thinking a Muslim wearing rubber gloves (to protect himself from pork contamination) - may have done it to provoke either sympathy or anger or both. I’m agreeing with Cletus.D.Yokel.

Sorry, but I don’t give a smelly Muslim Obamadork about anything having to do with Islam. My advice: remove the pig, clean things up, sell your Mosque, and get your sorry butts back to the mid east.

They’ve got go a loooooooooong way to get to the place the rest of the civilized world was roughtly 1,000 years ago.

Well, if they react as fast as they did to the video in Benghazi, we'll find out in six months or so (/sarc).

I understand the feelings of some here as to their reaction to the desecration of a mosque, at least at first blush. It is certainly the case that most terrorist acts worldwide today are perpetrated by Islamic people. I get that.

But I think it is wrong to denegrate any religion, even Islam. This country was largely founded upon freedom of religion and freedom of speech. (And I don’t buy any claim that gutting a pig and leaving it at a mosque is protected speech.) I support full-on assault for terrorists, Islamic or otherwise. I just can’t support attacks on religion per se, even Islamic religion. I could support attacks on a mosque that had been responsible for a terrorist act, but I don’t think that was the case here.

I cannot get behind this kind of attack— although I thought the remark about ham and Mohammed was pretty clever.

Just in case the muzzies don't know it, every square foot of the country has probably had wild hogs on it at some time. They may as well leave now.

Mean while Christians in this are being denounced , beaten and murdered and slaughtered in the name of Islam and the religion of peace . The meek will only inherit the ruins . There are no moderate muzzies they love death more than we love life . A moderate muzzie would stand up to the radicals in their faith ,, so where are they ,, do they out number the radicals ??? Islam is an evil faith ,,, take my word on it or suffer the consequence of ignorance . Look at the UK for proof .

"But I think it is wrong to denegrate any religion, even Islam."

Islam is a system of tyrranical government wrapped in the respetable cloak of religion. If only Hitler had formally declared himself a god, nazism would have engendered the same degree of respect as islam.

We have our own opinions and no one will change mine..I know where you are coming from and do think the same as you about most religions..I am not in a religion like the Muslims they are murdering pigs and should be kicked out of my country..It seems very fun ny to me none of these Muslims have said a word against all the murders and things these savages are doing..When they moved to my country they took an oath to protect it and its citizen not to build a mosque on ever corner to house the filthy terrorist..have you read their Koran I didn't but did go thorough enough to see their leader was not God but a perverted moron that molest little children..

Now that is my opinion..

Oh, and for the record, this is not the way to treat anyone regarding their religion. Deliberate insults only foster conflict and violence. I just don't care for it taking up news space.

That’s terrible. This time of year, at the very least they should have been festively arranged, maybe with some red and green garland and a sprig of mistletoe.

I've read thru every reply, re-read them, and re-re-re-re-read them, and I can find no denigration of any religion in any one of them.

Lots of denigration of a terrorist cult, but not relegion.

Let me get this accurately....

Your approach within the US is to either kill them or force convert them to Christianity?

If someone wanted to desecrate the mosque (if that’s possible), they would have smeared a whole lot more blood.

The cleanup on this is just too easy to lead me to think it was someone other than a muslim member of the mosque.
