Russell Simmons House, the Mosque, and Ron Paul

In case you were wondering what the Bible verse says, "Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself." - Leviticus 19: 18

The rap music mogul, Russell Simmons, made his loft which is across the street from ground zero into a anti-protest sign.
Even Texas Senator, and President wannabe had to add his two cents to the whole Mosque debate.

Ron Paul, we wonder if he's related to Ru Paul

If you would like to read what Senator Paul wrote, you can click here, but we’ll highlight a few things for you.

Is the controversy over building a mosque near ground zero a grand distraction or a grand opportunity?

…Instead, we hear lip service given to the property rights position while demanding that the need to be “sensitive” requires an all-out assault on the building of a mosque, several blocks from “ground zero.”

…In my opinion it has come from the neo-conservatives who demand continual war in the Middle East and Central Asia and are compelled to constantly justify it.

…They never miss a chance to use hatred toward Muslims to rally support for the ill conceived preventative wars….

…The claim is that we are in the Middle East to protect our liberties is misleading. To continue this charade, millions of Muslims are indicted and we are obligated to rescue them from their religious and political leaders. And, we’re supposed to believe that abusing our liberties here at home and pursuing unconstitutional wars overseas will solve our problems…

…The nineteen suicide bombers didn’t come from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan or Iran. Fifteen came from our ally Saudi Arabia, a country that harbors strong American resentment, yet we invade and occupy Iraq where no al Qaeda existed prior to 9/11…

…The justification to ban the mosque is no more rational than banning a soccer field in the same place because all the suicide bombers loved to play soccer…

…Conservatives are once again, unfortunately, failing to defend private property rights, a policy we claim to cherish…

…It is repeatedly said that 64% of the people, after listening to the political demagogues, don’t want the mosque to be built. What would we do if 75% of the people insist that no more Catholic churches be built in New York City? The point being is that majorities can become oppressors of minority rights as well as individual dictators. Statistics of support is irrelevant when it comes to the purpose of government in a free society—protecting liberty…

…This is all about hate and Islamaphobia…
