    The US is a Christian nation. Your dichotomy makes no sense.

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

    That's just basic history, dude.
    The US also freed more people and gives more money to more countries than any other nation on earth.

    Thats just basic history, dude.

    Would Islam allow a Christian church to be built next to Mecca?

    No we are NOT a Christian nation, we are a nation that has some Christian followers as well as other religions.

    Thank you proving once again your intolerance of others.

    It is my position that Islam is incompatible with Western values. If we are both to survive, then there must be separation. If it were in my power, I'd deport every single Muslim in Europe and the Americas. Either back to their country of origin or to their Islamic nation of choice and I would duly prohibit citizenship or permanent residency to any Muslim. I would still trade with them, but I'd keep them in their own lands, far away.... and if their ****ed up culture ever experiences a new biginning and they grow out of their intolerance, then isolation might no longer be necessary. Until that time however, I consider them to be a threat to our very existence.

    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
    Would you like to point out how not allowing a Mosque at a certain location is against the Constitution? Take your time and make a complete fool of yourself.

    Ever hear of "building codes"?

    Yay! You know, the Constitution was not necessarily framed as secular. The same old timers that wrote the Declaration of Independence were largely the same group who wrote the Constitution and were by and large a group of guys who were religious to the extent that they believed in their Creator or at least a higher power. The US was formed in a social and political climate where nearly everyone was Christian to one extent or another. I don't see where in hell, Islam must to associated with us

    Good thing it isn't in your power and thank you for demonstrating your intolerance. You definitely aren't a follower of Jesus.
