    Ground Zero Mosque On The Move?

    This would cause me to begin to respect Islam just a tiny bit if this turns out to be true.

    Well at least when you base an opinion on an entire religion and people of almost 2 billion, you generalize in the positive as well as the negative.

    Specially when one considers that the vast majority of Casualties of Islamic Terrorism are muslims themselves.

    Oh well, no need for silly facts like that.

    I wonder if the reason is many Muslims and Muslim organizations were against it and spoke out.

    Interesting that the article talks about building their mosque on state land. Is that a freebie? Sure sounds like it...

    I love how no one gives a **** that the land that is being offered is State land which means it is voters land.
    But no, free land? Why wouldn't the Mosque move.
    I'd move it if I got free land.

    The argument being made in opposition to the proposed New York City Mosque is that it is too close to Ground Zero and, therefore, its location would offend the sensitivies of some whose families suffered losses from the 9/11 terrorist attacks. However, Voice of America reported that there appears to be a broader trend of opposition to Mosques well beyond Ground Zero. Voice of America reported:

    Meanwhile, a Muslim-American group warned Tuesday of what it called a "growing pattern" of opposition to mosque construction across the country.

    Mahdi Bray, director of the group called the Muslim American Society Freedom, said plans to build mosques have been opposed or denied in other parts of New York City, as well as in the states of Alabama, California, Florida, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.


    What are the excuses for opposition to those other Mosques?

    Is the argument about the proposed Mosque's proximity to Ground Zero (two blocks away) really being used as a convenient pretext within a larger pattern of opposition to Islam/Mosques to try to thwart the construction of a specific Mosque?

    Quite frankly, if there is such a pattern as cited within the article, it may well hint at a troubling erosion of religious tolerance.

    And if this does happen, I'm sure everybody who accused the group of being too spiteful to change their building plans will at least apologize for that.
    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.

    Then why are Muslim groups saying not to build there?
