    • NO!  The reason being...this man acted alone! And bombing or killing anyone much less people who are NOT CHRISTIANS  is not the practice of Christians. Apparently this man was very disturbed and had let the devil get the best of him.  It happens.    

      On the other hand killing non-muslims, taking over the world through conversion, reproduction...IS the practice of the muslim world...despite what many muslims claim.  I’ve studied the muslim world in great depth this past summer and have talked to several women who were muslim but eventually saw the “cult” for what it really was and got out.  They know the agenda and it’s not “peaceful” as they claim.  

      So to answer your question...NO!!!!!!

    • Good question Anon!  

      I don’t think the Oklahoma blast was religion related either. And like Annie I would be curious to know how the surviving family members feel.

    • If I recall correctly he did it because of the Waco bs because of David Koresh. (When Janet Reno gave the go ahead to open fire on the compound). I don’t recall religion playing any part of it.  And, I doubt very seriously he was a christian!

    • McVeigh bombed because he was angry with the government in general and the Clinton Admin in particular.  His actions followed the federal abuse of the freedom of religion.
      The Ruby Ridge fiasco occurred about 30 miles from my home.  The arrogance of the federals involved was breathtaking.  They charged goods at local small business, who were then never reimbursed.  One local business owner went bankrupt due to the large credit he gave feds,expecting eventual reimbursement, which never happened.  They were dismissive and rude to local law enforcement, instead of working with the locals. They trespassed on private properties that were not even related to the Ruby Ridge investigation. One lady had her flower garden destroyed because a federal agent thought she was growing opium poppies, which in reality were just regular poppies. (Wonder where he went to college?) Lots of stories, but the point is that the feds were acting in such arrogance and disregard for the people and were enabled and encouraged by the Clinton Admin, esp Janet Reno, that there was a lot of anger.  

       McVeigh was angered as well,but he also had emotional issues and unfortunately, struck out and killed innocents and children.  So, in answer to the question, a church built at the OK site, is not comparable to a mosque built at Ground Zero.

      #1  America is a Christian country, founded on Christian principles

      #2  America has freedom of religion, which Islam does not grant to its’ members. It is also a faith that encourages violence against non-members. Women are considered inferior to men. Therefore, Islam is in direct conflict with basic American civil liberties.

      #3  McVeigh was an unstable and dangerous man, working alone and if he had help, it was limited.  Islam on the other hand, has a coordinated movement that has publicly stated their goal of destroying Western living, and terrorism is their method.  They are not even courageous enough to declare war in the usual sense.

      #4  McVeigh, if he was indeed a Christian at the time of his attack, was a lousy Christian and any practicing Christian would state so.  Muslims, on the other hand, by their tacit agreement with their theology, believe violence is a necessary part of their faith and is actually rewarded in eternity.  

      A Christian church would be a celebration of all that is American, for most Americans.  Whereas, a mosque is indicative of all that is anti-American.  

      And I don’t give a damn about what kind of lies the liars in the lying media tells us.  Islam is not a peaceful religion. It cannot co-exist with the inherent rights and freedoms of Americans.  And that is why they must destroy us.

    • I just read about him a few minutes ago and he was raised Catholic but said he did not believe in “Hell“.  I don’t see him as a devout christian - he didn’t even consider himself one.

    • I see many of the facts and opinions have been presented here about McVeigh..but getting back to the question about Christian churches, no they should not be banned as it represents a group of people, gathering together to worship in GOD‘S name.  I am not familiar with any other type of worship, but Christian, so therefore it would be difficult for me to comment otherwise.  I will say, however, that any radical group that poses themselves a threat to the United States should be banned from any type of worship here.

    • Well said, Annie.  I should have clarified, that a mosque built at Ground Zero is indicative of all that is anti-American.  

      I get on my patriotic high horse and skid over some things, like you pointed out.  I do agree with your quote.
