    As salaam alaikum,

    JazkaAllah khair for posting this. My mom and I were watching it today and the funniest part for sure was when he’s like: “You should call (such a person) a bigot” (ie. referring to himself…) It was funny how they were contradicting themselves though; some said “it’s only about the property” and some said “I don’t think a mosque should be built anywhere”!

    anyway, may Allah erase hatred from the world and guide us, ameen.

    funny stuff.

    the guys at the pig race they interviewed were slightly drunk, that’s why it was funny, he convinced them to say idiotic things (that I’m sure they all feel but wouldn’t say publicly otherwise).

    moral of the story,

    approach everyone with kindness and respect, especially the non-muslims in this sensitive time, but also have a CHL ;)
