“America is not perfect,” Abdul Malik, an organizer of the event called Islam on Capitol Hill, told the crowd.
“But I will say something it took me my whole adult life to come to: America is not perfect, but I want to tell the truth: It is one of the best places in the world to live.”
Bu... bu... bu... MUZOLM ISLAMOS?!??!??!?!
Across the street from the service, Christian protesters gathered with banners, crosses and anti-Islamic messages. One group, which stood next to a 10-foot-tall wooden cross and two giant wooden tablets depicting the Ten Commandments, was led by the Rev. Flip Benham of Concord, N.C.
“I would suggest you convert to Christ!” Benham shouted over a megaphone. Islam “forces its dogma down your throat.” A few Christian protesters gathered at the rear of the Muslim crowd, holding Bibles and praying.

“It is important for Christians to understand that Friday’s Muslim prayer initiative is part of a well-defined strategy to Islamize American society and replace the Bible with the Koran, the cross with the Islamic crescent and the church bells with the Athan [the Muslim call to prayer],” the Rev. Canon Julian Dobbs, leader of the Convocation of Anglicans in North America’s Church and Islam Project, said in a written statement.
“The time has come for the American public to call Islam to account,” he said.
I love how this Benham asshole claimed that Islam "forces its dogma down your throat," and then he suggests "you convert to Christ", thus effectively forcing his dogma down our throats. Those islamo demonspawn really did get something right though - America really is one of the best places in the world to live. Instead of taking part in bloodbaths in the streets, we're only shouting logical inconsistencies at the top of our lungs. I love this country.
