it was mentioned in another thread that muslims build mosques on places they conquer. i guess i want to know the rationale behind believing this in a negative light. don't christians do the same thing? isn't it the best way to spread your faith and religion around? do you suppose the native americans took too kindly to us building our churches all over their country? go to egypt and you'll see christians have taken some of their ancient temples and turned them into churches.
heck, christians even take other peoples festivals and celebrations and turn them into their own (christmas, easter etc). i just simply don't understand falling for the "hype" of claims such as this one, and many other ones that right wingers fall victim to constantly.
i guess i don't really know that this is a debate, unless of course you want to debate this, i just wanted to point out that some things i hear coming from the right are just ridiculous. i DO want to know why so many people are dooped into believing things like this, and why 90% of the time it's always the conservative right making this stuff up.
