    Technically, if they are getting funds from Iran/Saudi Arabia... They're really just getting money from Americans with large SUVs.

    "We are in the planning stages," said Oz Sultan, spokesman for the center now called Park51. "We have just started the process of fund raising planning."


    What a shocker this guy won't rule out taking money from the terrorist state of Iran.

    And he just started the process of fund raising right when he goes on tour of the middle east at our expense. Nice.

    I find nothing wrong with taking money from Saudi Arabia (behead homosexuals), Iran (execution of homosexuals) or even Syria (tortures homosexuals, women and Jews).

    Money can also be raised from North Korea and Cuba, both beautiful countries with freedom for all

    President Obama is a great President.

    I love President Obama.

    He has never lied.

    Ever.

    Imam Feisel is a wonderful man.

    Yassir Arafat is my homeboy (granted he did like small boys).

    Nohting here to see.

    Move along.
    No way, you need to worry. Because if they take that money and build that mosque, that means you're going to be executed here in the US for being gay! Don't you see....Sharia law...it comes with mosques....totally. Especially when funded by countries which impose the strictest interpretation of Sharia Law. If that money is taken and the mosque is built than we'll have Sharia law here and you're a dead man! FEAR THE MOSQUE!!!! FEAR IT!

    I wasn't accusing anyone on this forum of anything.

    I was putting myself in the shoes of the fellow we're all supposed to be hating on.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Ah, thanks. So different than perhaps a terrorist organizatio, but still designated as some other sort of class. In that case I'm unsure, as I am not sure of what laws may be in place with regards to investment of Iranian money into U.S. businesses or non-profits.

    For clarity's sake . . .

    Are people actually saying that if they took funds from the governments of Iran and Saudi Arabia, it's just so much paranoia to have concerns about it?

    I'm saying it's absurd to flip out about what the man said, on the grounds that if I were in his shoes I'd say it too.

    Just to piss everyone off.

    Aside from that, he isn't dumb. Having made this announcement I'm sure he'll make sure he doesn't take a single penny from an illegal source.

    In my case, no I am not saying that. Since there is so much confusion, let me clear at least my beliefs on this issue.

    The Mosque has ever legal right to be built.

    Christian groups can protest the mosque for any reason whatsoever, even if it is simply that Muslim's are icky(note: that is not the real reason they are protesting it, that is an extreme example, and more to come)

    Jewish groups re free to protest the mosque for any reason whatsoever, even if it's just because they hate Muslims.

    Atheist groups are free to protest the mosque for any reason whatsoever, even if it is because they think no religious buildings should be built ever.

    Gay groups are free too protest the mosque for any reason whatsoever, even if it is because the mosque colors will clash with the streetlight colors.

    The guy who wants to build the mosque is under no obligation to listen to any of the people protesting the mosque.

    To me personally, I think there is no reason to my mind that the mosque should not be built, but that opinion is not any more valuable than any one elses.
