    The Imam Who Inspired Menino’s Mosque Lists The Many Ways To Kill Gays : The Natural Truth


    EDIT: A person who posts on this forum has attended said mosque and they told me the people in charge there have not preached this line, it was the man who menino worked with to raise the money to build it that preaches this...and he isn't allowed in the country.

    I know, I live here and it doesn't shock me but I just wanted to shed light on the truth that Menino is only doing this out of politics, not out of personal conviction.

    I love how you guys think an anti-gay company should be allowed to set up shop anywhere, and that that is the exact same as a religious group spouting their beliefs.

    Well except for the fact that the 'company' isn't anti-gay and the truth is Kathy didn't say what he's quoted as saying. Bottom line was he was 'pro traditional marriage and family' not anything about gays. That's his beliefs and last I checked, he's entitled to them.

    Any legal company should be allowed to set up shop anywhere and people should be smart enough not to give them any business if they disagree with the company owner's positions....then again I believe in liberty and individual freedom instead of govt beurocracy and power.


    And that isn't the point of the thread, why toss red herrings in here? The point is Menino came out against the restaurant for being against gay marriage but completely supported a mosque that preaches the punishment for being gay should be death.

    EDIT: I was just informed by a poster who attends the mosque that he has never heard this type of rhetoric preached in the mosque. I would like to put that on record now.

    He is entitled to them and no one is saying otherwise.

    He is also entitled to the repercussions that come with those beliefs.

    A Mosque is a religious organization like a Temple or a Church. Last I checked, religious groups have the freedom to practice and say what they want about their beliefs. Has that changed?

    And you don't believe in liberty or individual freedom. If you did, you would at least admit an elected official representing the people would have the freedom to say "no". You believe, what you wrote, that ANY company can set up ANYWHERE and let the people deal with it.

    You believe in company > people.

    Which is why boycotting a business you don't agree with or supporting because you do are common.

    However, politicians denying permits is not fair for a legitimate business location. If the folks in the area don't support, it will close soon enough.

    Amazing so many are so willing to allow Politician buffoons to tell them where they can and can't eat. Here's an idea, how about just letting the People decide for themselves where they want to eat? This guy is a Nazi puke. I don't even care what your politics are. Government doesn't belong in this issue. Period, end of story.
