Yes I'm a bigot because I'm opposed to overt symbols of gender discrimination.Why should I listen to anyone that is doing nothing more trying infest others with hatred and bigotry? Save for it for your next Teabagger Rally, I'm not fooled.
How is the opposition to a legal system that regards half the population as chattel indicative of hatred or bigotry, though? I would think any actual liberal would oppose such obvious misogyny, and you must be full of hatred and bigotry against women, since you would oppose it, too, if not .

Even if this Mosque goes ahead with this plan, good luck to them in trying to get it built. NYC is a union town and nothing is built without it. Also being in the trucking industry, good luck to them in trying to get building materials delivered. Having talk with others in my industry, most companies will not deliver to this proposed site and for those who will, the drivers themselves will most likely refuse such as myself. Also if this organization tries to have this built with non union labor, the sh*t will hit the fan and it is standing policy for most non union trucking companies NOT to cross union lines.
I'll make a deal with ya. You say what you want, in the way you want and I'll do the same with what I want to say. That work for you?
As to the rest of your drivel, I'll place it in the circular file where it belongs.
the relevant report. To paraphrase from the table: To the statement "Homosexuality is a way of life that should be discouraged by society"; 61% of Muslims agreed, 64% of evangelical Protestants agreed, 68% of Mormons agreed and 76% of Jehova's Witnesses agreed. (Oh, and 10% of agnostics; the lowest group )
Clearly churches should only be built if they're not Evangelical or Mormon. Other tables in the report show a similar pattern, for example Muslims see less 'conflict between religion and modern society' than all of the Cristian faiths, and find that their 'values are threatened by Hollywood' less than all groups but historically black Protestant churches (page 14).
Islam is adapting, especially in (comparatively liberal) places like the US, where an alternative to fundamentalism is clearly visible and legally protected. Alienating Muslims by insisting that they're all really secret fundamentalists will only drive them in that direction; it's a self-fulfilling prophecy.
