We’re Not Muslims! (Not That There’s Anything Wrong With Them…)

Here’s a sure sign that American Islamophobia has officially sent us through the proverbial looking glass.

From the WashPo blog:

A Christian church in Phoenix has had to make a presidential-type denial: It is not Muslim. The building under construction will feature a domed ceiling, and protesters have taken that as a sign the church is not what it says it is. The leaders have hung up a sign saying, “We are building a Christian house of worship,” the Atlantic reports...

“I have nothing against Islamic people,” Carlos Montemayor, the pastor of the church, said in a phone interview. But local commentary had been growing, saying that the building was a mosque and an investigation should be launched into the church. He put the sign up to stop the comments.

  1. Muhannad

    You made me laugh.
    I am sure George Costanza would have added : no,of course not, I have a lot of Muslim friends, my father is a Muslim.

    So, everything is OK now since it is a church. I suppose the freedom to worship applies only if you belong to the right religion(s)
