After watching this video, I have decided to keep my eyes peeled to see if Mayor Bloomberg keeps to his words the next time the Christian faith requires the same defense. Somehow, I doubt Mr. Bloomberg will be able to see things so clearly.
While Bloomberg is correct in his words about America defending religious freedom, he like so many liberal elites refuses to understand and believe that the Islamic faith currently has a cancer. That cancer is Islamic extremism. To pretend that this problem doesn’t exist is an invitation to disaster.
What most Americans want is for our elected officials to show some caution when dealing with the Islamic faith. Since peaceful Muslims seem unwilling or incapable of eradicating the extreme elements within their faith, then caution is the order of the day. Treating the Islamic faith with caution may not jive with the sacred doctrines of diversity or tolerance, but attacks like 9-11 make it a necessity.
