I do not live in your community, but I have concerns about intolerance in America.
Islam is a total life-encompassing doctrine, addressing cultural and religious matters as well as political issues that is governed by Islamic sharia law, a law based on the koran, sira and hadith (the biography and traditions of Mohammed, or “sunnah”).
It must be recognized that the theo-political doctrine of Islam makes the attainment of political objectives a religious duty. The political objective is to bring the entire world under the “divine” law of sharia; to eradicate man-made law. And according to Islam, sharia is applied to both Muslims and non-Muslims.
The theo-political doctrine of Islam fully implemented under sharia law, consistent with the koran and sunnah, condemns freedom (of speech, religion, association, press, petition of government), forbids equality (between men and women, Muslims and non-Muslims) and denies traditional sovereignty (national boundaries based on language, culture and shared history). In sum, sharia violates our cultural values as well as our laws.
So, the thrust of my comment is that bringing a mosque into your community will inevitably bring sharia, including elements of sharia that are inconsistent and irreconcilably in conflict with the US Constitution and your state constitution, and will not simply be offensive to your community, but be destructive of it.
This message is not borne of bigotry, racism or hatred, only a concern that our great nation will continue to be a haven for human liberty.
