#1 I dunno, I kinda like the Hindu faithful. They aren't trying to destroy all infidels or anything. The Muslims have a habit of building a Mosque on top of any other faith's temple that they can. The Hindus are just trying to take one back. I hope they succeed, and I'd like to see similar action to recaim the Temple Mount in Jerusalem from the scum-sucking Muslim Waqf. I mean, just look at what the effin' Muslims did to Joseph's Tomb, they're perfectly happy to destroy anything that's not a Mosque - I say turnabout is fair play, and these Hindus have my full support!

#2 Don't forget the Hagia Sophia. Granted, it's not a mosque anymore, but it should be a church again.

#4 "Granted, it's not a mosque anymore, but it should be a church again."

Should it? I don't find much of a reason for it to be so, anymore than I think that the Parthenon should have the function of a temple to the goddess Athena, rather than a historical site...

The historical value of Hagia Sophia seems to me atleast as great as the religious value -- I'm quite satisfied with it being just a museum.

Then again I don't consider myself a Christian but an agnostic rather -- and Christians may have a different perspective on this...

#5 I'm not a Christian, either, but it's time for the Muslims to get a thumb in their eye.
