The 911 Christian Center and Other Tributes Respectful of the Solemnity of that Horrible Day

One enterprising pastor is seeking to raise 8 million dollars for a Christian Center, and it’ll be even closer to Ground Zero than Park51, so nyeh! The pastor in question, Bill Keller, is, unlike those Islamic fucks, an avatar for pluralism and the values that make America great.

To get a sense of where Keller is coming from, consider his project’s website, which calls Islam a religion of “hate and death” whose adherents will go to hell. It also says: “Islam is a wonderful religion… for PEDOPHILES!”

Keller is the same pastor who hosted a birther infomercial that encouraged viewers to send him and a partner donations to advance the birther cause. His Internet ministry explicitly calls President Obama the new Hitler. He calls homosexuality a perversion and abomination. And in 2008, he targeted presidential contender Mitt Romney for being Mormon with a campaign called “voting for Satan.”

In related news, what 911 memorializing has really been missing is a rock musical.

Broadway, btw, is a pathetic 10 blocks from Ground Zero, and the Manhattan LDS church a full 5 miles Get with the program abominations!

  2. Except to wonder: what kind of midtown Manhattan property can be gotten for a measely $8 million? Are we talking here about a sidewalk kiosk or a hot dog cart?

    Nor I, except to wonder whether this isn’t an arms race. Because now, the GLBT community will have to put up something to nullify Keller’s message of hate, and the Mormons will have to come in too. But of course, if the gays are there, the black baptists need to come in, and if the Mormons are there, the black separatists and Jehovah’s witnesses will have to rail against, or want in on, the imperial missionary action. And the Jews will want to show solidarity with…somebody. But with the Jews and the blacks moving in that, of course, brings the Klan…

    Really, I won’t be satisfied until the Church of the Subgenius put in a casino across the street with a giant neon picture of JR “Bob” Dobbs, surrounded by flashing lights staring down at the ruins.
