    The trouble is, the road to painting all Islam is terror. It's such an easy road to go down it's scary. And that's the only thing I wish to avoid.

    A good portion of the reasoning to oppose the mosque has included many lies about certain aspects of it, and a good deal of islamophobia. Which I don't appreciate.

    You know, I may disagree with the judges ruling, but he's probably not wrong. Much as I hate the Westboro Baptist church and believe me I do. Is it HIGHLY unfortunately their right to do their hateful crap. Unless anyone here has a legal solution to this dilemna?

    I'd certainly like to hear about it, cause the WBC is bull****, sick bastards. Which is why I have such respect for the patriot guard riders who went out and did what they did for as many families as they could, I thought that was really really cool.
    When is the judge's funeral? I would like to attend.......

    With a protest sign. See how HIS family likes it.

    Maybe, but nearly none of them denied the mosque's religious freedom or attempted to block it legally. But you're pretty much siding with those who wanted to block WBC's right to protest.

    Position on Mosque = They have the Right but they should probably build elsewhere.
    Position on WBC = They have the right but I wish they would protest elsewhere.

    If they are protesting on public property the states have no business stopping them from protesting.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Dude.

    You started the thread swearing, saying you disagreed with the judge's ruling, though you begrudgingly acknowledged he might be right, and then wondered if there were other ways to stop the protests. Sounds to me like you would have been happy had the judge ruled the other way.

    Much as you may not agree with the NY mosque protesters, I don't think they ever said anything similar. They acknowledged from the beginning that Park51 has the right to do what they're doing.

    The legal solution I was reffering to if you read my second post, is if there was some technicality in which the WBC was infringing on the rights of the family.

    That's where rights end and boundaries begin.

    and even admitted that such a boundary does not exist.

    Not agreeing with the NY mosque Protestors is one thing, I agree with a few sentiments, what I disagree with is trying to paint all Islam as terror... and inventing lies to get people against it even more, such as the one I debunked about the ground breaking ceremony being on 9/11 2011
