Freedom of Religion in America: Hypocrisy for Many Who Advocate for It

Hey, Moron, You Do Realize You Are a Reflection of Your Ugly Self, Right????
(I rotated the picture to get the result I wanted)

Troubling story from USA TODAY here. A few points: 

Organizers are planning about 20 anti-Muslim rallies this weekend across the USA, putting officials at many mosques on high alert and prompting many community leaders to urge Muslims to take precautions in case demonstrations turn violent.

The goal of the Global Rally for Humanity, which is asking supporters to create a Facebook page for each protest planned, is to gather a group in front of every mosque in the country — in part to counter a Nation of Islam rally in the District of Columbia to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March. The number of mosques in the United States has risen from about 1,200 in 2000 to 2,100 five years ago, according to a study from the Hartford Institute for Religion Research titled The American Mosque 2011.

Their Facebook page lists no contacts, but the Chicago-based Center for New Community 
identified Phoenix activist Jon Ritzheimer as the architect of the plan, and he has posted several videos on YouTube promoting the protest, according to the Montgomery-Ala.-based Southern Poverty Law Center

In May, when Ritzheimer staged a heavily armed protest outside the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix, he had said he wanted to see similar rallies nationwide.

A sample of their support listed below shows which crazies will show up – why? Do they even know or care that thousands of Americans – natives of the good old U. S. of A. have converted to Islam?

There is a list of people who are in some cases famous, or infamous, or not, converts – FYI:

The point of this is to show the anger directed at the religion and those who practice it thinking that they are “fighting terrorism” by attacking possibly peaceful and law-abiding people in the U.S. free to practice any religion or none at all.

BTW: in accordance with the law of the land – yeah, that law: the Constitution of the United States – first oops.  

Do you want someone, anyone, to interfere with your right to worship or not? Just don’t ask a GOPer Hardcore Ultra Rightwing Christian Conservative in America to answer that question – they think they are under dire already – second oops.

Oh, yeah, a lot of them advocate from the halls of Congress for freedom of that right, too – third oops.  

Organizers in nine cities have posted invites to their rallies on Facebook as of Friday afternoon. People in at least 10 other cities — Amarillo, Corpus Christi and Dallas, TX; Danville, VA; Fort Pierce, FL; Grand Junction, CO Huntsville, AL; Phoenix, AZ; Racine, WI; Spring Hill, FL  — have set up pages but either restricted access to invited individuals or canceled their events.

So, how’s their head count thingy working out??? (Note all are Facebook invite requests):

•  Atlanta, GA: 35 say they're going of almost 400 invited
•  Charleston, SC:
 36 going of more than 275 invited
 Dearborn, MI: 65 going of  more than 850 invited
 Ellicott City, MD: 22 going of more than 900 invited
•  Florence, KY:
 25 going of more than 500 invited
 Louisville, KY: 41 going of more than 500 invited
•  Medford, OR:
 17 going of more than 450 invited
 Murfreesboro, TN: 35 going of more than 135 invited
•  Ocala, FL:
 31 going of more than 200 invited

My RSVP:  “Take your invite and shove it where the Sun don’t shine” (to use an old 1970’s expression).
