Man, the story about the Islamophobic bigots in Texas who are trying to prevent a Muslim cemetery from being allowed in their town just keeps getting dumber and dumber. Just listen to some of the staggeringly stupid things they’re saying to justify their bigotry:
Some residents of the Farmersville, which has a population of 3,000 said that their main concern was the way in which they believed Muslims inter their dead.
“When somebody dies they bury them at that time. They don’t know whether they were shot, diseased or anything else. All they do is wrap them in a sheet from the grave and bury them,” Troy Gosnell told the local CBS station.
Patricia Munroe voiced fears that local drinking water could be polluted.
“We used to grow onions here. We sure enough don’t want to be growing bodies,” said another resident, Mont Hendrick.
Feelings ran high at a town meeting earlier this week, where direct action was proposed to prevent the Muslims pressing ahead with the project.
Take and dump pig’s blood and put pig’s heads on a post so they won’t buy the land,” one resident said.
He’s a fucking genius.
