Tell me they aren’t Fox News viewers, just tell me.

So my aunt posted the following on Facebook:

“I just got an email on how everyday the Muslims in NY City are allowed to pray in the streets because the mosques are so full. Isn’t it sad that we can display any of our beliefs on private property.? Looks like America is looking more and more like Europe and it actually showed them in the streets.”

Here’s the comment thread.

Tony Pelliccio Funny – at least once or twice a year I spend time in NYC and I never see them praying in the streets.

Tony Pelliccio In my opinion, NOBODY should be allowed to pray and/or preach in public.

Carol Puopolo thats your opinion . Tell that to 86 % who want it.

Tony Pelliccio Ok, once again I’ll ask for citation of that statistic. 80 something percent seems to be a favorite number to throw out when there’s no real data behind it.

Carol Puopolo please Tony! Get real! You only feel that way because of the situation

Tony Pelliccio Look if you have to throw out red herring, at least cite where you got it from. Otherwise I’m left to assume that you made it up.

Carol Puopolo Look it up!

Tony Pelliccio No of course not, and I have a very strong sense for bullshit. But always be careful what you put out there if you can’t handily cite it. That’s at least one academic principle that I stand by.

Well Catholics have had their way for about 2,000 years to pretty much disastrous effect on society. So I did google the muslim thing and here’s what I found:

Mike Carbone The real question here is “Why are the muslims allowed to do this and No other Religion can?’ Because of a muslim pres, thats why. bottom line

Tony Pelliccio And as to Catholics – go look up the Tradition, Family and Property goons. They’re the ones that wear the red sashes with crosses on them. They’re Catholic too.

Tony Pelliccio Ever been to a St. Patrick’s day parade? I give you the Catholic praying in the streets. Or how about the idolatry of carrying a statue of the Virgin down the street. I’ve seen that one here in Providence.

Tony Pelliccio Mike Carbone – that is false. Granted, Islam is a fucked up religion but there are a whole lot more moderate Muslims than there are radical Muslims. Same as how there are right wing Christians in this country who have KILLED people. So if the scoreboard were to be drawn up, the Chrisitians were just as bat shit crazy as Muslims.

Carol Puopolo besides there are more mosques than Catholic churches.
22 minutes ago
Tony Pelliccio There are 17,644 Catholic churches in the U.S. and 2,106 mosques. So in essence there 8.3 times as many Catholic churches as there are Muslim Mosques. And as to two hundred mosques in NYC, with a population of 8 million, and lets assume 100 people for each mosque, that would be 210,600 Muslims out of 8,000,000 people, or just 2% of the population. Catholics on the other hand are probably about 45% of NYC.

Tony Pelliccio And Mike Carbone – I may be Italian-American but 12 years of Catholic schools was a real eye opener for me. Especially the last 4 years.

I really have to stop. Using read data is lost on a lot of Italian-Americans.

  1. The Pope is preparing to convert to Islam. Obama is trying to stop him, “I tried that, man, stick with Jesus.” If Romney wins, Mormons are planning a big parade in NYC on St. Joseph Day. I know all this is true because I read it on the internet.

  2. I don’t understand why you antagonize your family when you know they will not be swayed. But I agree: of all Christian sects you would think that American Catholics would be sympathetic to the horrors of religious prosecution. Maybe they don’t remember the slander used against JFK, but it’s not hard to look up.
