    You missed the entire point of what he said.

    This is becoming a trend. A very very dangerous one.

    Because they don't want to provoke a controversey.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Clearly, there are some who oppose it on sincere concern about respecting the sensitivies relating to 9/11 families/victims. However, if the article is correct, there may be at least some who also oppose it on grounds that may have to do with a lack of tolerance. If so, that's a disturbing element.

    Oh well, no need for silly facts like that.
    A vast number of the casualties on 9/11 were Muslims?

    No, but the vast majority of casualties on 9/11 were Americans, just like majority of Muslims who attend Mosques in New York and would attend the new once if built.

    So whats more important to you, that they are Americans or that they are Muslims?

    Ground Zero Mosque On The Move?

    There was a possible resolution in the works Tuesday night in the debate surrounding the proposed mosque and Islamic cultural center near ground zero. CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer has learned it looks as if the developers of the mosque may be willing to budge and move away from the Park 51 location where they originally planned the construction.

    New York Gov. David Paterson plans to meet with developers of the controversial ground zero mosque as early as this week to offer them state land at another location for their cultural and religious center. Paterson told Congressman Peter King about the meeting, and King said the governor asked him to make it public.


    Fantastic news if it really leads somewhere

    No it's not. State Land? to a religion? How blatant a violation of the 1st amendment do you want?

    Public safety. Its obvious this Mosque being placed where it is now could easily enflame tensions unnecessarily.

    Are you saying its against the law to consider public safety?

    Anyone else see a 1st amendment problem with this?
