    interesting...

    There's only one way to find out.
    go for it, build the mosque in open defiance of the sentiments of those to whom you wish to reach out

    "find out" what will happen, by all means

If this was about property rights and religious freedom rather than PC bull**** where the left now laughably claims a rightous belief in the unshakable sanctity of property rights, then where's the outcry over the plight of the Greek Orthodox Church?

    Likelihood of what will happen.

    1. The mosque is built and after all the hubbub dies down, no one really cares.
    or
    2. The people who built the mosque **** all over the local community.

    I know where the probability stands, do you?

    Perhaps we should see what the families of the victims actually have to say rather than letting you speak for them. Actually, now that I think about it, some people on the right don't really think that highly of families of the victims, unless their opinions align with theirs:

    That's all I've found about this church so far. I'm not sure what you're referring to when you say that it's being prevented from building.

    So yeah, it's a totally different circumstance and thus irrelevant. But nice try with the red herring.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    The Greek Orthodox Church of St. Nicholas that was destroyed in the 9-11 attacks, the Greeks are not being allowed to rebuild their church on property they already owned and that had already had a church on it. Look I support the right of these people to build their Mosque, likewise I support protesting the hell out of it, but if those on the left now claiming their undying belief in the sanctity of property rights and religious tolerance weren't just using them as a cover for their multiculturalist east = good, west = bad, bull****, then where the hell were their cries of indignation for the Greek Christians? I guess that didn't rank on their outrage meter's because they weren't the right religion and not a dark enough shade of brown.
