I want to state this as clearly as possible so there’s no mistake in understanding what I’m saying. Politicians in the United States are about to hit a wall that will test their patriotism. The flash point that is now in every American’s face is the building of the Ground Zero Mosque. Most politicians so far have tiptoed around the problem, but now the American people have made it their number one issue. The litmus test for politicians will be patriotism, plain and simple. If you don’t appear patriotic you won’t win an election. As politicians around the country confer with their political consultants, this is now the main answer they have to resolve. Americans have watched what has happened to Mayor Bloomberg of New York City and now the President of the United States coming out in favor of the mosque. They have both shot themselves in the foot and may have critically wounded their political careers while coming out against the will of the American people, which is to stop the building of this mosque. They both now are perceived as unpatriotic.
With that said, it should be understood that the alleged Muslim religion in its current form is not acceptable to American law, culture or the maintenance of civil order. It’s more like fitting a round peg into a square hole, it just won’t work. For it to work, like any similar situation, the edges have to be sanded down if it’s expected to fit into a modern society such as ours. Thus, my conclusion, the alleged religion itself should not be legally recognized as a religion but more as an all encompassing guideline to life (Sharia Law). Sharia Law is not in any way shape or form a part of the American legal system. As we all know our laws here in the United States are based on centuries of tested Judeo-Christian case law, not Islam or Islamic culture. This is the part where politicians just don’t get it. If you back the building of this mosque the American people will reject you and your future in American politics will be short.
Logically moving on, the alleged religion would not be afforded the normal protections under the Constitution and Bill of Rights. This is where constitutional lawyers will be able to dissect and test every guidepost that’s now part of Sharia Law. This will be a long and difficult battle for the American people but will sand down the edges of the alleged religion thus eventually exposing the true fundamental pillars of a real Muslim religion that could fit into a modern society. Like a rotting onion that can’t adapt to the twenty-first century, the alleged Muslim religion’s horrific outer layers need to be peeled off so the rest of the world is able to live with them in peaceful harmony. It would than allow the millions of followers of this movement to assimilate into a modern American society. Of course, this would all be dependent upon the makeup of our Supreme Court. This alleged religion could conversely be, in fact, deemed a massive worldwide cult that we have many laws against. So, as you see this battle will last as long as there is the war on terror. The next question for all will be, do the American people have the resolve to defend their way of life or will they switch on their IPod’s and tune out while their society is taken over by a worldwide Islamic revolution? This is why patriotism will be the one word that will dominate the midterm elections and eventually the Presidential race in 2012.
