    contempt, anyone?

    derision?
    That's calling a spade a spade. You don't respect someone by lying to their face about their bad behavior.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Its not Turkish or American values to commit genocide. Its what we have become that dictates our values. Your constitution reflects these values, even IF government has decided to ignore it. That argument isn't legit.

    I guess there should be no churches built in downtown Atlanta because of the Centennial Olympic Bombing that was done by a right-wing Christian terrorist?

    I'm talking about attitude, not blood, and it's in our very recent past as well. Hell, it's in our present. My argument is that it's been present enough for long enough that it could be considered fundamental to how we work as a nation.

    Actually, the Constitution doesn't speak on the subject of xenophobia, unless I missed an Article...

    Objective Voice says
    Moreover, as another poster has mentioned plans were in the works to build this mosque at this particular site long before 9/11 occurred

    I can't find this to be true.
    What I found is that it was purchased from a utility co. in 2006.

    What part of this recent history suggests Xenophobia is how your nation works?

    Actually, the Constitution doesn't speak on the subject of xenophobia, unless I missed an Article...
    The constitution emphasizes the important of private property and the right to religious freedom, which means by its very nature it is preaching the opposite of xenophobia; rather the fundamental importance of accepting and coexisting, the very mechanics that has created a successful cosmopolitan, and through this diverse nature, a strong American society.

    However it is 2 blocks away, not exactly as some have suggested and described it as "towering over ground zero" or "at the site". That's a bit dramatic.
    I just heard that the coat factory was actually damged on 9/11. That's pretty close in my opinion.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
