No one so far shows Manhattan as their location. I'm not like Palin. I can't see Manhattan from my porch.
Not only is the funding unaccounted for but the Imam who would be in charge said this:
BRADLEY: Are — are — are you in any way suggesting that we in the United States deserved what happened?
Imam ABDUL RAUF: I wouldn’t say that the United States deserved what happened, but the United States policies were an accessory to the crime that happened.
BRADLEY: OK. You say that we’re an accessory?
Imam ABDUL RAUF: Yes.
Imam ABDUL RAUF: Because we have been an accessory to a lot of — of innocent lives dying in the world. In fact, it — in the most direct sense, Osama bin Laden is made in the USA.

The funding and this sorry excuse for a holy man stinks to high heaven.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Our Actions in that part of the world? You mean our support of Israel don't you?
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.
False analogy meant to distract from the larger point. Stay on topic please.
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****.
Do words mean anything?
So what! And plenty more don't. I think that the recent polling of the question of whether or not to allow this mosque there were somewhere around 60% NO! So once again the people don't want it, but the lib pols will proceed anyway. I am seeing a pattern with liberals.Originally Posted by SE102

Sorry, I am usually for letting anyone worship the way they request to worship. Also, people should be allowed to build what they want on their property. And, if they are not permitted to build, they'd win a case in the US Supreme Court.
BUT, THIS IS BULL****, and those defending the right for the Mosque know it is BULL****.
You build your Mosque anywhere you like but NOT next to Ground Zero. Ground Zero is SACRED, and many will defend to prohibit this from happening.
I hope the zoning committee finds a way to prevent it.
It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.
That's just basic history, dude.
I am well aware of our history in the ME, and wonder sometimes just what you libs would have us do as it relates to US interests abroad?
Should we have let the Soviet Union run roughshod over Afghanistan?
Should we not have a relationship with SA considering that they are one of our supplies of oil?
Maybe we should have let Saddam live eh?
We back the play of the things we think are right and just, for freedom, and libs tend to place catch 22's in the path at every turn.
