Viva Le Difference

The United States is a melting pot. Even the Native Americans came from Asia (Mongolia) when Alaska and Russia were connected. We are all Americans. Christians, Jews, Muslims and people with other religions who were born here or have been naturalized are Americans. People who came from (Or whose ancestors came from) Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, South America or the rest of North America and are citizens are Americans. Citizens of all colors are Americans.

It is time that those who say that only White Anglo Saxon Protestants are the only ones who have a right to be here realize that their ideology is ignorant and has no basis in fact. Prejudice is the product of ignorance. These people are afraid of what they do not understand. Most live in poverty blame their poverty on those who they are prejudice against. They do not realize that they would be just as poor if there targets were not here.

What makes this country great is that we accept people of all religions and ethnic backgrounds. We do not force them to blend in with our society if they do not want too.

It is time for Christians to realize that they are the minority religion on this earth. It is time for whites to realize they are minorities on this earth. It is time for us all to learn about other cultures and religions. It is time for all people to accept all other people

Do not condemn all whites for the actions of a few. Do not condemn all of any race for the actions of a few. The same goes for religions and ethnic backgrounds. If God condemned a group because of the action of a few in that group we would all go to hell.

We are all brothers and sisters. We are all human. We all have to learn to live together as equals because if we don't we are doomed to more wars and terrorism.

Help stamp out bigotry. Ignore bigots. When a friend uses racial slurs let him or her know that you do not like it and stay away from them. Do not get caught up in the ignorance of bigotry.

The attack on our country was by fanatics backed by a man who has money and is power hungry.

This man convinces his followers that they are in a holy war against the devil. He has convinced them to sacrifice their lives on earth for the cause and in return they will have everlasting life as a hero in heaven. They will go to hell and their leaders will go to hell.

The Muslim religion is a peaceful religion and they do not believe in killing innocent civilians. We have made Israel one of the strongest nations on earth and that power has gone to their leaders head. Their present leader had a Palestinian refuge camp in Lebanon massacred. He defiled their holy mosque. He is having his troops kill kids who only crime is that they want freedom. You do not answer rocks with bullets.

It is time for our country to put a muzzle on these power hungry leaders and force Israel to withdrawal from the Palestinian territory. Since they can not agree on Jerusalem then don't let any country control it. Set up a council represented equally by the Muslims, Jews and Christians to govern the city. It should be a sovereign city-state like the Vatican.

It is time for the people of the world to tell their leaders that it is time for peace. Those of you on the internet are meeting people from all over the world from all different ethnic groups. You are the ones who can work for peace and tell others that hatred is killing our world.

Talk to those who are different. Learn about their religions and customs. I think you will find that even though there are many differences there are also many similarities. We all have the same God. Even those who have more than one god are worshiping different faces of our God. Our God is the ruler of heaven and earth. Their gods have different areas or parts of life that they are in charge of.

The key my friends is this.
