    Fail!!!!


    It is true that that Christianity was the majority religion of the first european colonists, it was the majority religion at the time of the country's founding and has remained by far the dominant religion throughout the history of our country. There is no doubt that the country was settled by Christians and has been populated by a Christian majority.

    This country was founded by Christians, and all the way to today over 80% of the population describes themselves as Christian....Yet we have your statement.....Sorry dude, you're just wrong.

    What I cannot do is allow them to continue to use the facade of religion to undermine the tenants of western society.

    No, it was founded by Deists for the most part with values that most religions share. Also, with a divorce rate of 50%, how many of those are actually ACTING like Christians?

    Ultimate FAIL on your part.

    Good question, and honestly, no I would not against a Christian church, Jewish temple, or a Hindu/Buddist temple.

    There are two Christian Churches already next to it Trinity and St. John's, but this is not the reason I'd vote no.

    I don't have numbers; I am not lumping all Muslims together; and generally, I would not vote no to mosques being built anywhere else. Hell, build one right next door to my house, school, job, etc., BUT, don't build one next to Ground Zero.

    On this infamous dates, many Muslims were photographed celebrating the collapse of the Twin Towers. Radical Muslims have declared Juhad (sic) on the USA and the west, and we are at war with Al Queda.

    Am I being prejudice? ON THIS ISSUE, HELL YES. Ground Zero is scared, and to build a mosque near it would award those idiots who attacked us.

    Sorry

    Really?

    Thousands of Palestinians protested against Denmark this week, and Arab ministers called on it to punish Jyllands-Posten.

    Syria and Saudi Arabia have recalled their ambassadors to Denmark, while Libya said it was closing its embassy in Copenhagen and Iraq summoned the Danish envoy to condemn the cartoons.

    The Danish-Swedish dairy giant Arla Foods says its sales in the Middle East have plummeted to zero as a result of the row, which sparked a boycott of Danish products across the region.

    The offices of Jyllands-Posten had to be evacuated on Tuesday because of a bomb threat.

    That's just basic history, dude.

    Don't forget that our nation has had more of its citizens sacrifice their lives for freedom than any other nation.

    Sorry
    There were also Muslims that died in the trade center on 9/11. I guess you don't think they matter much do you? I guess they don't deserve anything because they were filthy Muslims in the eyes of some on this board.

    How pathetic that some feel so self-centered to declare ground zero sacred and feel the need to take away from Muslims that died as well.
