Bacon Protests at a South Carolina Mosque

Mosque protesters in South Carolina have taken a unique approach.

A disturbing sign of intolerance at a Florence, SC mosque. Members say someone wrote the words "pig and "chump" in bacon outside the walkway earlier this week. It's especially offensive because most Muslims do not eat pig products. Darryl Hughee lives across the street from the Islamic Center. He says the center has been a positive influence on the community.

"Shame on them. Whoever did what they did, it has to be a mental thing, you know. I mean, kids will be kids though, you know what I'm saying." Hughee elaborates.

Now a Muslim civil rights and advocacy group is calling on the FBI to investigate.

Because the crime wasn't targeted to a specific individual, police are investigating this as a form of harassment rather than a hate crime.

    May be if we had a President that had the guts that the Austrian PM does we wouldn't have people that believe Killing Infadels is an in to Heaven! Quote; If you can't agree with parliamentary law, independent courts, democracy, and would prefer Sharia law and have the opportunity to go to other country which practices it, perhaps, then, that's a better option," Costello said. Asked whether he meant radical clerics would be forced to leave, he said those with dual citizenship could possibly be asked to move to the other country. Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that Muslims who did not want to accept local values should "clear off". "Basically, people who don't want to be Australians, and they don't want to live by Australian values and understand them, well then they can basically clear off," he said. Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Hats off to the Aussie's
