Let that church go up, and perhaps who would see a different outlook from those who oppose the mosque.
    The church was denied because they didn't own the property they wanted to build on.
    They have been in negotiations with the state on a trade with the property.
    Not even the same thing.

    No **** you don't care about property rights, you are a complete hypocrite.

    And I have not engaged in hyperbole and stereotyping, it's you who has tried to paint all Muslims as peace loving and tolerant in your attempt to label those opposed to this Mosque as bigots; whereas, I have pointed to the words and actions of a very specific Muslim individual IE Imam Rauf.

    Yes you have, you've taken his opinion on OBL, the attacks and turn them into some form of wrong and a form of bias in favor of Islamism.
    Frankly, a lot of non Muslims hold that very same opinion, that America meddling in the Middle East, was the cause of terrorism(in America) and the WTC attacks.

    No where have I stated that all Muslims are peace loving and tolerant, nice how you have to make stuff up in order to form an argument.

    No I have taken his favor of Islamism to form my conclusion that he favors Islamism. Supporting a Sharia compliant U.S. in which secular laws do not contradict the Hadiths or the Koran makes him an Islamist that's the very definition of the term. I've taken his apologetics for Islamist terrorism to determine that he is an asshole.

    Frankly, a lot of non Muslims hold that very same opinion, that America meddling in the Middle East, was the cause of terrorism(in America) and the WTC attacks.
    And they can go screw.

    You're certainly trying to paint this Islamist Imam as "one of the good ones", when he is in fact part of the problem.

    No,people are not trying to paint this guy as a "one of the good ones" only that he is not a terrorist as you seem to think he is.

    He may be an asshole, like many conservatives here,but being an asshole isn't illegal or make you a terrorist to prevent you from building something.

    The hell they aren't.

    only that he is not a terrorist as you seem to think he is.
    He's not a terrorist but he is an Islamist and part of the problem, it is the Islamist ideology which has directly led to Islamist terrorism. And you people are trying to label those who oppose the Mosque as bigots because we draw the only conclusion that can be drawn by the actions and the words of this particular Imam.

    He may be an asshole, like many conservatives here,but being an asshole isn't illegal or make you a terrorist to prevent you from building something.
    Holy **** I've never said he doesn't have the right to build this Mosque only that it's not right that he's building it.

    Oh, you can oppose Shariah Law all you want, but oppose the law, not the people as a whole. As have been stated several times before, there are some Muslims who oppose it. Will you condemn them, too?

    And the Imam behind this Mosque is not one of them.
