The fact of the matter is that Muslims choose to build in former Christian churches or on the sites of former Christian churches as a sign of Islam conquering Christianity.

You can deny this fact all you want, but the empirical proof throughout the history of Islam will prove my point.

This IS a 'war of religions' to Muslims and the sooner Social Progressives, Atheists, Carnal Christians, and other secularists pull their heads out and get clued into the FACTS, the better for America (and Europe...but Europeans seem to be finally getting in touch with reality, after the move by Muslims throughout Europe to force Sharia Law down European's throats.).

Here's a prime example of the 'religion of peace' and how 'tolerant' it is of non-Muslims religions and those who practice those religions.

These articles will, or should, dispel any lingering aspects as to just what Islam teaches about other religions and those who practice them.

I don't care for the mosque directly in the center of our city. I think it sends a bad message to those visiting. Those moons and stars are creepy. Those Bosians act so arrogant who are fixing up the place. They look at ya like "I dare ya to say something." There are some rough looking Bosians fixing that old church up too! LMAO - I walk on the other side of the street! Regardless, I understand a mosque is a mosque but there is a difference between a Bosian Mosque and an Iraqi one right? I don't recall any Bosian's blowing up anything here in America except for the welfare rolls! ooops, sorry mean! but seriously, those immigrating do get a lot of assistance initially! housing, foodstamps, start up monies, medicaid, property, ESL classes ... etc!

City is not yours!
And secondly, go to DSS, first floor waiting room and see for yourself who is doing all of the "blowing". Or you can wait until Monday and do it while waiting in line for your recertification.
