Washington DC- On September 25, 2009 it was a warm sunny Friday at the United States Capitol where the first Muslim Day of prayer was held on the west lawn. It was a a family friendly event with brightly clothed participants numbering about 50, 000 who all joined in a positive time of meditation and fellowship for a new future in the relationship between Muslims and America, the country they call home.
Unfortunately, a certain loud and rude over zealous Christian cult calling itself “Operation Save America” was not only handing out horrible pamphlets, openly praying to scare people from their communal prayer event, but screaming racist anti-Muslim slurs in a megaphone during the silent meditations and sacred moments.
Their nasty little pamphlet reads : Abortion is Murder, Homosexuality is Sin and Islam is a Lie. Inside this handout they claim Jews have “religious hypocrisy” and the rest of the tripe is anti-Muslim racism and hate “through Christ”.
Mike Flugennock reports from DCIMC:
Christians Make Sorry-Ass Spectacle of Selves at National Muslim Day of
Prayer at the Capitol
JESUS FREAKS SHOUT, BABBLE AT MUSLIMS; FLING BIGOTED INSULTS, THREATS OF
DAMNATION AS PER USUAL
It had turned out to be quite a pleasant sunny afternoon when several
thousand Muslims gathered on the West Lawn of the Capitol in a peaceable
neighborly manner to pray and meditate on their National Day of Prayer
while, in the meantime, they were relentlessly hectored, harassed,
bullied and accosted by a gaggle of born-again Christian nutcakes in a
display of the kind of ignorance, arrogance, and stupidity that drove
this reporter to become an atheist, skeptic, and rationalist (in his
junior year of college, while hanging around the dorm on a Sunday
morning doing bong hits and watching the 700 Club for cheap laughs, upon
seeing Pat Robertson praying over a pile of letters containing checks
and cash mailed in to his phony-assed “ministry”).
As far back as this reporter – originally from a Catholic family – can
remember, the only religion whose members hounded him to join their
“flock” and threatened him with eternal hellfire and torment if he
didn’t believe as they believed were the Christians. No Jew or Muslim or
Hindu or Buddhist or Shinto ever subjected this reporter to the kind of
pushy, crass bullying that he’s had to put up with most of his life from
Christians of the kind he witnessed pestering the Muslims who came to
the Capitol to pray this afternoon.
