    If this mosque is built. I predict it will be destroyed within a year.

    I don't believe the KKK is a religion, so your example does not appear to be applicable.

    I don't believe Islam is a religion. Islam is an evil cult and must be eliminated.

    And so do most of the opponents to the building of that Mosque. It's not the matter of if they can build it or not. It's the matter of why they are building that mosque in that location. I am for them building mosques, but that location is creating tension. It's like burning the American flag. It's legal, but many Americans(I hope a majority....) does not like people that do that in front of their faces or stomp of the American flag. It's a sign of disrespect to the people there. And this mosque is showing that despite a majority of people do not want it at that location, "we are gonna do it anyway because we can" kind of attitude. How you like it when a guy walks up front of you, spits on an American flag, stomps on it, then lights it up. But then again.... They can do it, but people might not like it.

    Where did it ever say, promote for the common defence, and provide the general Welfare..... Please don't mix up the two....

    Is this the agenda you were referring to? Or is this responding to another post?

    Well, it's been around for about 1400 years, and 1.3 billion people practice it. I'd say it qualifies as a religion.

    Re: President Obama comes out in support of Ground Zero mosque

    I haven't seen any quotes from Obama indicating that he actually supports the building of the mosque - just that he believes it to be legal to do so. Whether or not you think the mosque should be built, I've yet to see anybody claim that it cannot be built. From the quotes I've seen Obama didn't take sides one way or the other - his comments are completely mundane.

    They fit as well into the definition as a cult as any other modern religion really. I mean many religions have their terrorists. Christian terrorists, Jewish terrorists, etc. The only religion I haven't heard being claimed by a terrorist is Bhuddism, even though with the whole Tibet deal I could be wrong about even that.
    Reality tends to have a liberal bias.

    You are aware, are you not, that the property was purchased and the project was being planned long before 9/11/2001. They could not possibly know that several blocks away that a future tragedy would happen.

    And it isn't just the location of the mosque. Protests against building mosques and Muslim community centers are popping up all over the country, nearly a dozen in the just past couple of weeks alone.

    It's their land, they've been planning it for years before 9/11 happened, the project complies with all applicable laws and ordinances, and they have the same property protection rights as the rest of us. Frankly, I'm disappointed at the religious intolerance I've been seeing in a nation built upon the foundation of religious freedom and tolerance.
