ljfrostfire: ($#@%&!)
Watching the CAIR press conference on MSNBC just pisses me off. Muslims shouldn't have to do this every time somebody with an "Arab" or "Muslim" sounding name does something horrible. They shouldn't have to remind us that they're not monsters. They shouldn't have to prove that they're horrified by this kind of violence. Nobody demands it of Christian groups when white, presumably Christian folk do terrible things. No Christian religious groups felt compelled to condemn the violent actions of the "no more baby parts" nutter that shot up the Planned Parenthood in Colorado. Nobody expects them to. Nobody would demand it of them. That it IS required of Muslim groups is a terrible indictment of our collective Islamaphobia. And nothing else.
