    I said I thought it was being done in poor taste but they are protected by the constitution.
    yeah, we were assholes. yes, they are protected, but who cares? they should back the hell off. it's not just pooor taste, really, it's like rubbing salt in a huge gaping wound, and really, it's a stupid move.

    Someone obviously has not read the Bible, nor has any clue what the Bible is all about. Jesus came in fullfillment of the Scriptures.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It's sad to think that this mosque will be built before they start rebuilding the WTC site.

    I agree it's in poor taste and wouldn't recommend it at all, but they have the right to do so. That's all I am trying to convey, sure it looks like a dirty move but maybe they build this mosque to show people hey "most of us are peaceful people, we a sorry this happened" and are trying to mend relations. If that's the case I see nothing wrong.

    It's not "on the WTC site." It's a couple blocks away.
    So, conservatives: How big a "no mosque zone" shall we establish in NYC? Should we also establish similar zones around areas where crimes have been committed by Christians? Is the "no religious building zone's" size standard or does it scale with the number of fatalities?

    It's a community center with a mosque in it. They're trying to reach out to the community and mend fences. And you're spitting in their face and calling them the enemy. You are anti-American.

    No, they don't have a "right to build" anything. That has to be approved. They have the right if American citizens to ownership of the property, that is all.

    Now earlier you insulted the entire board, saying in essence that we knew nothing about the Qur'an, yet you seem to know nothing of the Constitution of the United States.

    And further:

    sure it looks like a dirty move but maybe they build this mosque to show people hey "most of us are peaceful people, we a sorry this happened" and are trying to mend relations.

    You say it looks like a dirty move, then say hey maybe they just want to be friends? What are you smoking dude?

    Historically speaking it is a show of dominance to erect a temple on the ground which one feels they have conquered.

    which is why I say it "looks" like a dirty move, Maybe that is the motive behind it..no way to know for sure. I'm just saying it's nuts for people to try and justify the point of "no Muslim Mosque by the ground zero because some Muslim extremest nuts destroyed those buildings." If I was a Muslim I would be fairly upset with this whole thing. To attempt and lump 9/11 on the entire people of a single religion isn't right. The people that will attend and work at the mosque probably would have never wished 9/11 happened.

    and exactly how are you gonna go about denying these people the right to build their Mosque without being unconstitutional?

    I'm just defending the constitution here, and The Bible is filled with absolutely atrocious and horrible things. Maybe it's no Koran but it's no Buddha-Dharma
    Don't make me take you to the woodshed. The point made was that you cannot equate Islam and Christianity unless you wish to embarrass yourself.

    Interesting you bring up Buddhism since Islam sees those religions as even lower forms of life than Christians and Jews or "people of the book"
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    i think no muslim mosque because a muslim extremist destroyed those buildings AND killed our citizens is very reasonable.
