Thousands of Muslims risk their lives defending Coptic Christians from terrorists

posted by Gus diZerega

One of the most depressing recent blots on the increasingly blotched American character was the ignorant and infantile outrage by so many over the “Ground Zero Mosque” (which was none of the above). To make their case they had to demonize the Muslim community as a whole.  This outrage continues to be promoted by bigots and monsters masquerading as Christians and patriots. I regret that even some Pagans, who should know better, were taken in and joined the mob. 

With that blunt preface I link to a story that appeared today where thousands of rank and file Muslims have turned out to create a human shield protecting Coptic Christians who have been targeted by terrorists. Anyone who thought the bigots and monsters stirring up anger at a Muslim cultural center had a case might take the time to read it and be embarrassed.
But in all honesty I doubt most will.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t it also Muslims who aided Neopagans in being recognized at various interfaith conferences about six years ago?
This is not the first time Islam has proven itself to be more of a “religion of peace” than many Christian organizations, including the Catholic Church and many American Fundamentalist Christian groups. This, to me, is rather sad.

l could not believe my eyes and ears,when l saw a well educated,informed americans,including congressmen and woman protesting vehimately against the building of culture center for the less privilege one just because some people had blow the world trade center and being presume to be arabs and muslims so the center should not be allowed to be build there baloney, who told them the people are not jews or even christians who did crushs the aircrafts against the building .moreover if a tiny minority of people commit a crime so every muslim is criminal l think they should know better,unless they political under tone with protest l do not think this is right.i think the mojority of american people are people who study thing critically before they let their feels know.

Earth Day and the Sacredness of the Earth
I think Earth Day is a particularly important moment for contemplation and commitment by us Pagans.  Often American Christian critics accuse us of “pantheism,” and in a important respect they are right.  We do find the sacred, most of us, in the earth without reference to any transcendental sp

Instructive examples on why interfaith work is a good idea
I deeply believe the problems in our country are more of the heart than of the head. Here are some youtubes courtesy of John Morehead of the Evangelical Chapter of the Foundation for Religious Diplomacy on Facebook. They speak more eloquently than anything I can write that interfaith work is a good

The controversy over Pink Slime - and what it means.
The controversy over pink slime is helping educate Americans to the fact that corporations are as beneficial to agriculture as they are to politics. Tom Laskawy put it pithily: “What pink slime represents is an open admission by the food industry that it is hard-pressed to produce meat that won’

How the "war on religion' backfired into a war on women
Here  is a really good article by Tina DuPuy on how the Republicans got themselves into such a mess with America's more intelligent women.  Left undiscussed is how the extreme pathological masculinity of both their deity and their leaders made that slip so very easy.
