Protesters rally against, for planned Islamic center in New York
How does building a Community Center over a Burlington Coat Factory effect the dignity of 9/11 victims?New York (CNN) -- With chants and banners, opponents of the planned construction of an Islamic community center and mosque near ground zero faced off Sunday with demonstrators in favor of the facility.
Hundreds of critics and supporters of the proposed center in New York showed up despite an overcast and drizzly sky to express their views amid the national debate over the facility.
Police estimated that supporters of the center numbered up to 250, and critics numbered about 450 during the demonstration.
A banner on the anti-center side said, "Land of the free. Stop sharia before it stops you," referring to Islamic law. Another sign read, "No mosque here. Preserve the dignity of our loved ones killed on 9/11."
Does Bruce Springstein know that these wing-nuts have hijacked his song "Born in the USA"?
I guess the Constitution is an inconvenient document...
Pretty pathetic, if you ask me, that a multi-cultured country can be so racist and xenophobic.

Where, on the basketball court or the Child Care room?? What an idiot. Thanks Glenn and Sean for dumbing down our country and wiping your ass with the Bill of Rights. 'Freedom of Religion (except Islam)'. Idiots!Another critic, Shawn Gilfeather, called it "a breeding ground for terrorists."
