We’re Not Muslims! (Not That There’s Anything Wrong With Them…)Posted: November 18, 2010
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.
