I guess not everyone in Tennesee is against construction of the mega-mosque monstrosity in Murfreesboro.
Herald Citizen (H/T Mrk B) A crowd of more than 100 Muslim sympathizer protestors gathered outside the courthouse last night with signs saying “We love Muslims” and “All religions believe in justice,” (If you think Shari’a law is justice) among many others, showing their opposition to the Tennessee Freedom Coalition’s showing of what they call a highly controversial film about the Islamic religion. (The truth isn’t controversial, it’s the truth)
“A Warning to America,” by Geert Wilders, a Dutch politician who has spoken out against Islam, was shown in the county commission chambers last night. DVDs of the film were also available for purchase at the event.
“We’re here to voice another side,” Pat Handlson, minister of Cookeville First Presbyterian Church and event organizer said. “I think it’s sad there’s been such negativity surrounding the Murfreesboro mosque.” (Sad? It’s terrific)
Wilders, according to Rachel Welch, organizer of the film showing and vice-chair of the Putnam County Republican Party, has been under persecution in his country for hate speech and speaking out against Shariah law. Not long ago he was acquited, but he still has to travel with bodyguards as he was put under a “fatwa” (call for his death) by Muslims.
“This is certainly not a hate film,” Welch said. “It’s about facts and Islam being a political ideology shrouded in a religion.”
“I just wanted everyone here to be a witness to this event,” Handlson continued. “To be a witness to love your God and love your neighbor. We all can co-exist.”(No we can’t. Islam requires you to convert or be killed)
Welch feels that it’s a film all about education of the Islam faith and how it’s changed societies and countries all over the world. Handlson is concerned about this film being shown locally because Cookeville is home to a large group of Saudi Muslims. (The same nationality as 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers)
