Your Brains Won't Fall Out

August 19, 2010 - Joselyn King
At this time in the state of the world, we just have to decide what issues really are the most important to the overall general health of society -- and which battles we need to fight.
We stare today at such overwhelming issues as staggering unemployment rates, a climbing national debt, higher energy costs, outsourcing,  wars on two fronts, outraegeous health and prescription costs, and people dieing.
Still, what seems to be the issue on many minds in the past week? Whether or not a mosque should be built in the neighborhood near the former World Trade Center. In comparison, this issue seems kind of small and unimportant, doesn't it?
I mean lets look at this objectively. The terrorists responsible for the reprehensible acts of 9-11 and other events represent only a very minute number of Muslims in the world.
I thought we just hated the terrorists who don't twice about sacrificing and killing even their own children? Is our war really not against terrorism, but against Muslims? Just asking.
I was struck the other day by a sign outside a local church. It stated: "Don't be so open minded that your brains fall out."
O.K. I'm not a doctor. But I'm pretty sure your brains won't fall out of your head if you exercise some well-placed acceptance of others with whom you might not always agree.
And if your brains do fall out of your head, again, you've got worse things to think about.
