Thank you, Quazi!
The funny thing is both religions are extremely improbable to be true but you guys continue to argue over who is right and what not. My God has a bigger penis than yours!!!!
which is why I say it "looks" like a dirty move, Maybe that is the motive behind it..no way to know for sure.
Motive? let's take a look at who is behind this so called outreach shall we?
Feisal Abdul Rauf
"It was Christians in World War II who bombed civilians in Dresden and Hiroshima, neither of which were military targets."
"I wouldn't say that the United States deserved what happened, but the United States policies were an accessory to the crime that happened."
During an interview on New York WABC radio in June 2010, Imam Rauf declined to say whether he agreed with the U.S. State Department's designation of Hamas as a terrorist organization. Responding to the question, Rauf said, "I'm not a politician. I try to avoid the issues. The issue of terrorism is a very complex question... I am a peace builder. I will not allow anybody to put me in a position where I am seen by any party in the world as an adversary or as an enemy."

So, he is a master deflector. When asked about the bombing of innocent civlians he plays the blame game with the US going back to WWII.
When asked if the US deserved what happened on 9/11 he says that we were at least complicent in what happened. So yes he does believe we deserved it.
When asked if he would denounce Hamas, he dances like a supporter of Hamas.

It is common practice for Muslims to lie to non believers, in fact is called for, so to take this man's word on anything would be insane, seeing as how he was raised by a Father that was involved in the Muslim Brotherhood.
even if he was an avid supporter of 9/11 and Hamas we still wouldn't have the right to stop that Mosque...It does indeed look a bit shoddy. I have just been trying to the point across that their is no way you can stop this mosque from being built without being unconstitutional. If I was that man I would build my mosque elsewhere but that doesn't change the fact that he has the right to build it a block away.
You are not talking to the majority of people, you are talking to people on a political debate forum on a topic concerning Islam, therefore those of us participating are much more likely to have knowledge of the Qu'ran than the majority of people.
I'm not going to waste my time trying to prove to you that myself or anyone else here is knowledgeable, because that is irrelevant. In my experience, it's always ill advised and rude to make such broad assumptions about a group of people.

Nope, you are just dead flat wrong here. Show me where in the constitution you have an unfettered right to build?
No you are confused, he has a right to own property, real, or otherwise, but no right to build, that is what local building commissions are for.If I was that man I would build my mosque elsewhere but that doesn't change the fact that he has the right to build it a block away.
If I repeatedly set your car on fire, I don't deserve to be shot by you. However, if you were to shoot me, my setting your car on fire might be considered a contribution to the situation that caused the shooting.
Somehow I bet you'll spin this to mean I support the terrorists or something, as that would be standard absolutism for conservatives and a continuation of the absolutism you've already displayed here, so let me just head that off as being total bull****.
One of you will end up here next!
