    a lesson befitting an 8th grade civics teacher

    cordoba may get its mosque

    actually the heat is getting so white hot, the mosque may have to be dropped, just like ksm's trial in manhattan

    just like gitmo

    we'll see

    either way, the politics are poison, and they're coast to coast

    it is what it is

    congrats!

    Well then it seems that maybe some here do not have an 8th grade education.

    That we shall, but GITMO and trials are part of government and the decision may be political. This case, however, is with private citizens and thus different. If they are allowed to build the mosque, I would imagine they'd do just that. And it's their right to do so.

    The only poison is this thinking that is going around that it's ok to use government force against the individual and the exercise of their rights when they have not infringed upon the rights of others and merely along the point that some people do not like the building.

    Again, it doesn't matter what the majority thinks. The majority cannot at their discretion violate the rights of the minority. We are not a pure Democracy. I don't know how often that has to be said before it sinks in. The majority can sit around not liking it till the cows come home; but they have no just or legal means by which they can stop it.

    Will you please just stop. Calling this mosque a numch of assholes. Who have an imam who is for shiara law, blames the us for 911 at least partially and refuses to ca hezzbolah terrorist is not racist.

    Only the retarded would make such a claim. Please stop.

    Nothing's wrong with us, seeing as no one here is racist, or posting racist commentary.

    IF you could highlight some of this "racism" for us, that might help us understand what you are on about.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
