    If it's no different than building a Christian church in the same area, why has NYC refused to clear a project to rebuild the Greek Orthodox Church that was destroyed on 9/11? Don't see Bloomberg cutting through the red tape and pontificatting for that cause, like he is for the mosque.

    You'll have to ask the city, but that is a different issue as well. In terms of insult, one is no more insulting than the other. Try staying on topic.

    Doesn't matter, it doesn't change that 80-100 meters from ground zero still isn't logically the same as being on or directly next to ground zero.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    Most of the country disagrees with you on that one.

    If you want me to stay on topic, then don't talk about issues that aren't topic. Eh, friend?

    Meaningless even if true. popular opinion alone never equals fact. As it relates to our discussion, I have stayedon topic. I have stayed with discussing wha is and isn't an insult. You diverted. Not me.

    Damn, did you sprain something dodging that one? That should have hurt, even by conventional "conversational tactics". It's really hard to tell sometimes when browsing these forums who sincerely believes what thay are saying and who is just "arguing intellectually".(A sport several friends of mine indulge in, with great passion, often frightening bystanders and occasionally waking the cat, but never with any hard feelings afterwards, even if no resolution is reached. It is after all a "game", and we all know this going in) But the mental gynastics necessary to "miss" some points is astounding, yet common, and I often wonder if it's tiring?

    Do you really think Michelle Obama uses words like "fabulosity", except in mockery of people who use words like "fabulosity"?

    Why would we let an imam, who sympathizes with terrorists, preach in a mosque 600 feet from Ground Zero.

    I'm old enough to remember 9/11. Maybe you can't relate.



    Care to back up your statement accusing me of being a white supremist?
    psst...it's "supremacist"

    That's nonsense. When the Muslims see the turmoil over the building of a mosque they see that the terrorists were right, America has an irrational hatred of Muslims. We talk about freedom of religion but what we really mean is freedom to worship as Christians (we are still ambivalent about Jews).

    We are a pitiful people if we can't avoid being manipulated by the conservative agitators like Fox and Rush who want nothing more than to create controversy. It seems that some people have to have adrenalin with their coffee and the conservative pundits/agitators are willing to provide the adrenalin.

    Re: Judge: State ban on protests at military funerals unconstitutional

    My belief on protesting funerals, anyone's funeral, is always the same, it is harassment. I don't think anyone should be protected from harassment charges. They are not exercising their rights, they are playing the system. Anyone who would protest at or near any funeral should get charged with harassment. I don't even care what they are protesting. If it disturbs mourners, it should be harassment. The group is targeting specific funerals, and therefore it should meet the legal definition of harassment.
