Muslim-Phobic Nation?

Have we become a nation of Muslim-phobics?

In New York City, and across the country, some people are trying to prevent Muslims from building Mosques in several communities. Already, other Mosques across the country have also been vandalized.

One church in Florida will be having a "Burn the Qu'ran Day" to mark the 9th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Muslim women are sometimes told at where they work to not wear a head scarf.

Even being suspected of being a Muslim can make people look at that person in a negative light.

So, are we a Muslim-phobic nation?

It looks like it to me, and the worst part about this is, is that it looks like the majority of people in this country do not have much of a problem with most, if any of the items I listed above.

This needs to be stopped.

One of the main reasons for the founding of this country is because the American people wanted religious freedom.

The first amendment of the Bill of Rights states that we have the right worship whatever god or deity we want to, wherever we want to.

No one has the right to tell another person what they may or may not believe, and no group of people deserves to be intimidated and discriminated against because of what a few nut jobs did.
