Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

I don't give a goddamn what you haters think. You've made up your mind...
Sure as hell ain't gonna convince me that 1/6th of our planet who are Muslim all prescribe to radical islam and are inherently evil and want to convert me or kill me.
I live between 2 muslim families and they are the nicest people on Earth, very religious but generous, and very open, i wonder if those amazing cakes they send us have Islam converting butter in them...
This thread is about the legality of building this mosque. If you can't talk about the topic at hand. Then i suggest you go lock yourself in a bunker with 1000 cans of tuna, with plenty of guns and ammo. And I'll go live my life free of fear and prejudice.
People are free or they're not. And it is not your right to deny them that freedom when it suit you.
2) Decentralization -- There is no equivalent in Islam for the Holy See or Vatican City or the Pope. The closest is the fact that the Saudi's own Islam's holiest locale, but even then that doesn't give them any kind of authority to do anything but deny pilgrims passage.
Those are just a few good reasons.
I think I'm done responding to your posts, there is just endless misunderstanding.
Anyway, have fun!
