    Okay, so that wouldn't apply here.

    Oh well, so much for easy answers.

    You know, what strikes me most in this thread is that the opposition posts, a lot of which are coming from conservative members, are essentially rooted in strong emotions.

    Why is it that when liberals do it, it's called having a bleeding heart, whereas when conservatives do it, it's called common decency or propriety?

    I was thinking the exact same thing. The level of emotional hyperbole in this thread is astounding. I honestly thought only ultra-liberals suffered from this ailment. Boy, was I wrong.

    The term double standard, coined in 1912, refers to any set of principles containing different provisions for one group of people than for another, typically without a good reason for having said difference. A double standard may take the form of an instance in which certain applications (often of a word or phrase) are perceived as acceptable to be used by one group of people, but are considered unacceptable—taboo—when used by another group.
    Something like this perhaps?

    I see.

    So, you would support any mosque, church, temple, synagogue, sanctuary, or other religious house of worship that discriminated against anyone?

    I find it amazing that Liberals will break their asses to defend the most intolerant religion of our time.

    I believe that the Ground Zero Mosque should be allowed to be built, only when they open their doors to all faiths, to worship within it's confines.

    Because it's true.

    This is a letter from Ron Weddington, who was the co-council arguing in favor of Roe v.Wade:

    "I don't think you are going to go very far in reforming the country until we have a better educated, healthier, wealthier population.... Start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country [through abortion].... There, I've said it. It's what we all know is true, but we only whisper it, because as liberals who believe in individual rights, we view any program which might treat the disadvantaged differently as discriminatory, mean-spirited and...well...so Republican."
    Why do Liberals think the way that they do, is the real question.

    I was in my teens when I figured out that Liberals didn't give a **** about anything more than their own agenda.

    Heh, I was around the same age when I figured out that both Liberals and Conservatives don't give a **** about anything other than their own agenda.

    Okay, first off, back the **** up. I'm not a Liberal. Use the right quip if you're going to get quippy with me.

    Second off, while I think it's wrong to discriminate against potential employees / customers of secular businesses and institutions because that affects their quality of life, people can live without walking into a religious structure -- especially one hostile to them. Furthermore, I'm a big believer in the First Amendment, and not welcoming someone in who violates the basic sensibilities of the religion for which the structure was erected is basic to that.

    Since it won't be on Ground Zero, and is in fact will be on private property which was purchased for this construction, oh well.
