Did anyone else hear about the church?

In case you didn't hear, someone set fire to an Islamic church last night in Fort Pierce. My bus always passes it, so when we drove by this afternoon, it was crowded with cars and news vans. This made me think (once again) about the fact that there are so many xenophobes out there who will believe any rumors or stereotypes that are floating around.

It was the Mosque attended by the shooter at Pulse night club in Orlando, so people felt justified.  Punishing the many for the sins of the one is always a great idea.

"Punishing the many for the sins of the one is always a great idea."

 

-nobody ever

 

So this was probably quoted from the arsonist.

 

*And yes, I picked up on the sarcasm*

Even if it is the church of the shooter of the Pulse nightclub, it still isn't right.

 

This is almost the same thing with the cops and African people

(I'm sorry if I insulted any African Americans playing WoWs...)

Assuming it was arson it is deplorable. However, there have also been cases of people burning their own building down to garner sympathy. So let's wait a bit for some facts before we assume who did this.

I think he was already caught, actually, but I'm not entirely sure.

Be careful when using broad brushes.

 

The shooter was one person.  This arsonist may have been one person, or even two or three.  Hardly "so many."

 

Xenophobia is a buzzword I have heard used quite often in the past couple of years, and in my opinion it is rare that it is used accurately or correctly.

 

Those rumors and stereotypes can be double-edged.

IK how to correctly use the term "Xenophobe". It's someone who fears any race or custom apart from their own.

 

And no, I didn't imply that there were a lot of arsonists involved in the mosque incident.

No offense but, I sense a Donald trump supporter.

He was being sarcastic about the last part. The former was stating that others felt it was justified, not his own opinion.

You should probably learn how to write a proper sentence before attempting to mock others for applying stereotypes, especially when you are doing precisely the same thing.

Keep in mind, everyone, that the discussion of politics and religion is against forum rules (section 2.6).

I know what kind of discussion isn't permitted, although the point of the thread was simply to inform about what happened.

Are you sorry if you insulted any cops?

Well sorry Mr Grammar... (Insert Fascism name here)... If  I wrote in my native language you wont understand. Even in my second language, you still wont understand. Come talk to me if English is your 4th language.
