No more Ground Zero mosque; Q'uran burning will not continue.

The imam who wanted to build a mosque at ground 0 has backed down and will move it elsewhere.  Because of this, Rev. Terry Jones has decided to not continue with his plans to burn the Q'uran.

The Rev. Terry Jones has been called a complete ass for what he had planned to do.  However, in the words of St. Jean-Marie Vianney, "If Samson can slew hundreds of Philistines using the jawbone of an ass, imagine what God can do with a complete ass." 

God might have used this obscure and ridiculed pastor to stop one of the greatest affronts on the pitiful victims of 9-11.  When the Obama administration disregarded their sensibilities and supported the building of the mosque to commemorate the triumph of Islam on America, the people had nowhere else to turn but God.  And God heard the cries of the poor and raised this simple person with an idea that the world scorned as fanatical.  And yet, it has been the answer to the prayers of stopping the abomination that would have added insult to the injury of 9/11 - time after time.  So, they need to be taken to task for this because, where there's a will, there's a way.

Back in the 70s, the entire 42nd St. is filled with pornographic shops.  Now, following Obama's academic defense, those shops have the right to be there.  But it is not right even if they had the right.  So, the local politicians did something.  They made laws that peared down the number of these smut shops until it is practically gone today.  Obama could have done the same thing with the mosque that he himself admits may not be the right thing to do.  But, he's just talk, copping out to cover himself.  In reality, everyone knows that he does not care for the victims of 9/11.  Many suspect that he is on the side of the terrorists because, he himself has not spoken with great love for the USA.

The news try to blame themselves now for the attention that this event got.  It back fired on them.  They wanted to paint those who oppose Islam as nuts but touched off a raw nerve that showed that the protestors are not just 30 people in the boonies.  I just did a search in Google on "burning koran quran" & got nearly 10 million hits (9,820,000).  When I searched on "ground zero mosque", I got nearly 15 million hits (14,500,000).  This is so because burning the Q'uran is one of the few things that Americans still have to protest the desecration of Ground Zero by a mosque of triumph and the fields of blood in PA by a cresent.

Anyone with goodwill can understand how those are offensive; I think some Muslims even agree. The late Pope John Paul II respected feelings like these when he backed off from building a convent at Auswitch just because some Jewish people found it offensive. It may be offensive only in their minds and the Church may have the legal right to do it, but the late Pope, a decent and holy man, respected these and backed down.

God seems to prefer using the poor, the obscure, the outcasts of society to make His points.

@Subvet: Amen to that. Our Lady herself proclaimed, "He has cast down the mighty from their throne but has lifted up the lowly."
