I previously wrote about the — Ground Zero Mosque — and the fact that the mosque in question is, and has been, an active worship center and that it stands three blocks away from where the Twin Towers fell. The mosque is located in the old Burlington Coat Factory building, and the fact that it is still called “The Ground Zero Mosque,” instead of “The Old Burlington Coat Factory Building Mosque,” is wretched testimony to the disgusting incivility of the conservative media warmongers who prefer to kill their enemies from afar and directly berate those here at home who do not agree with their punishing politics while they celebrate religious bigots like Terry Jones who prefer to burn the Koran instead of saying a prayer.
The most grievous celebration of the dead to sell advertising — by dancing on their graves — happened last week on September 10, the day before the ninth anniversary of 9/11, when the New York Post published this gruesome map dotted with the recorded remains of some of those who perished that deadly day — all in a transparent attempt to demonize The Burlington Coat Factory Building Mosque with deceptive arrows and perilous line drawings.
When we do not fight evil posing as righteousness — we are all condemned to everlasting darkness.
One of my favorite t-shirts currently floating around the avenues of New York has this printed on the front —
God is busy.
May I help you?
— and the image of the Devil appears, smiling, directly beneath the final line.
Some people read that shirt and think, “Oh, the Devil is lying to me. God is never too busy for me.” That interpretation is selfish and defines “the sun revolves around me” thinking.
I argue the t-shirt is the truth: “God is actually busy,” and He doesn’t have time for you unless you are in crisis or in dire need of His help. That interpretation is self-determinate intellectually solid: God is with me even if he isn’t paying attention to me, but the temptation of evil is always right there and ready and willing to serve any cruel interest.
Can you stand down the Devil alone?
Or must your God always be there holding your hand while you are enraptured by His rapt attention?
That is the real test of humankind: How do you behave when God isn’t watching and the Devil offers you his hand?
The New York Post — and the rest of the conservative media — are lying to you every single day. They try to juke the truth from you with their darkening lies and their meandering morality is brittle and bent and incontinent — and they smile as they ask if they can help you wend your way throughout a world where God has obviously forsaken you for the belittling interests of others unlike you and who are foreign to you and who seek to pull you away from a God you already left behind at the altar.
