    BTW, if you had a clue what you were talking about, you would have seen this post from me:

    If I am this relgious bigot against Muslims, why am I praising a Muslim here?

    There goes your worthless personal attack.

    Hyperbole.

    The founders believed in religious freedom, that kinda contradicts your whole point about "laying down and taking it."

    You forgot to mention the part where you completely misunderstood and didn't understand what was being said in the article you posted.

    It's not a conservative vs. liberal thing. It's a "read the damn thing before posting it" thing.

    This has nothing to do with religious freedom, and you know it. A sympathizer of the terrorists that struck that day is building a shrine to stick it in America's eye, and we're "laying down and taking it."

    Any decent person with any true sense of spirituality would not be this insensitive. A spiritual Muslim truly just wanting to build a place of worship would build it somewhere else.

    Let's stop pretending this is anything else.

    Could be this.....

    Crowley said no fund-raising for the mosque and cultural center during the trip would be permitted. "That would not be something he could do as part of our program," he said.

    Abdul Rauf said funds for the center will come from Muslims and members of his congregation.

    But a London-based Arabic-language newspaper that interviewed Abdul Rauf reported that he says he also will collect money from Muslim and Arab nations around the world -- raising the possibility his goodwill mission could help him build contacts in oil-rich states.

    "Does the State Department have any idea they are sending a guy to the Middle East who is going to be fund-raising perhaps among the very same people he will be meeting with?" asked Debra Burlingame, a 9/11 family member.

    You don't have a right to not be offended in America.
    You're starting to sound like the liberals you dislike so much.
