    President Obama comes out in support of Ground Zero mosque - NYPOST.com

    As of today 61% of New Yorkers many of them democrats, are aginst the ground zero mosque. Obama comes out in support. Not a very smart move on his part.
    How does StgRock stand?

    And what fringe-right clearinghouse of nonsense did you get that 61% stat?

    Sorry, but I think there is fishy stuff going on here. And all I get when I dig to uncover it in here is answers like yours, which basically said "WTF cares!" Sorry, but I think that is just kind of sad for a country that vowed to "Never Forget"....
    You have not yet shown any evidence of anything fishy. You have taken two entirely dissimilar situations, and said "see, they are happening differently", and not understanding why people are saying "well, yeah, and?".

    Strait out of the conservative playbook. When you can't argue with facts, you switch to trying to connect it with something unpopular.

    Building stuff in the air is difficult, so I'd agree.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    How are you missing the glaring differences between these situations?

    The church's original site DIRECTLY ABUTS GROUND ZERO. The Port Authority wanted to purchase the land in order to build security protections. The church used this position to try to leverage the PA into giving it a much bigger site elsewhere. After lengthy negotiations, the plans fell through. The church is now (and has always been) 100% able to rebuild on its original site.

    The mosque location is TWO BLOCKS AWAY FROM GROUND ZERO. The Port Authority doesn't give a **** what happens there and has no authority to get involved. The mosque purchased the property from a private investor and is moving forward with its plans, just like any other business or investor would. They didn't "get past the commission" on ****, as there's nothing preventing destruction of a non-landmarked building.

    Sorry, but I think there is fishy stuff going on here. And all I get when I dig to uncover it in here is answers like yours, which basically said "WTF cares!"
    No, I'm saying "you don't know what you're talking about."

    Sorry, but I think that is just kind of sad for a country that vowed to "Never Forget"....
    This is probably the most ridiculous use of "never forget" that I've ever seen.

    Which doesn't have a ****bit to do with this goddamn building.

    Good thing they want to build it a couple blocks away.

    Nice appeal to emotion(boy that is a pattern this thread).

    Well I learned a new word today. Well, assuming I am guessing what the stars are replacing right.

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

    Remember the two main issue that plaque the GZ Mosque:

    (1.) The GZ Imam. Imam Feisal Rauf has made insensative and pro-terrorist comments to the media in the past including in his recent book blaming America for the 9/11 attacks (due to its support of Israel). Imam Rauf has also called for the destruction of Israel (Al Jazeera, Oct 2009) if Israel "continues it policy of attacking Palestinian children." Rauf's wife Daisy has made anti-Semitic and inflammatory remarks in the past as well. With these comments, many are wondering if the GZ Mosque will be a hotbed of terrorist sympathies or draw anti-Semitic Imam's to its doors. Please note that *** all women are barred from worship with men *** at the Center, following strict Islamic Sharia Law rules.

    (2.) Money. The Cordoba Initiative has yet to release its FY2008-2009/2009-2010 tax records, or answer the question how they went from $100,000 in cash liquidity to nearly $100,000,000 in assets without disclosure. CNN's Anderson Cooper asked Friday: "Where is the money coming from?"
