    Ground zero mosque wins key vote

    Panel denies landmark status for Islamic center and mosque site near ground zero – Religion - CNN.com Blogs

    Muslims can build an Islamic center and mosque near ground zero. New York says the building at the site of the proposed center is not historic and can be torn down.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    A unanimous vote, too, we might add. Where next will Sarah Palin choose to demonstrate her irrelevance? (snicker chortle guffaw)

    Im still waiting for the legal evidence that allows blocking said construction. So far all I've been hearing from the statists are nothing but emotion. They could easily prevent the construction if they can prove owner is an illegal alien and/or the land was obtained illegally but of course thats too hard.

    Can't say I am really surprised by the vote. It seems like emotional people are reacting to something that they disagree with, but was legally done right.

    I am sure a lot of people hate it. I hate the fact my neighbors have loud sex at 3 in the morning, but I cannot legally force them do to anything. It is the same in this case, everything was done by the book.

    I don't see what the big deal is about it. Just another ****ing church. Big whoop.

    I'm betting people didn't protest any churches being built near the OK city bombing area even though McVeigh was christian

    Still don't see a reason to be upset, people should be able to distinguish that the people building this Mosque are peaceful Muslims while the ones who destroyed the twin towers were extremists.
