    Are you blind or being deliberately obtuse? They dont have to.

    Another thing about living in the freest country on Earth, is that I can openly criticize a religion for it's warped ass ideology.
    And I can criticize you for your warped-ass logic.

    If Muslims fail to condemn the ideology behind the terrorist attacks, then my point grows stronger than ever.
    Strong as a mouse with osteoarthritis. It's bass-ackwards logic.

    I doubt you'll hear any of the islamo-lovers supporting you.

    If so then we're both damned. To be honest I think God may be laughing too.

    It sounds like quite a delegation to hell, with Captain America leading the way.

    Do you mean this CAIR?

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has consistently and persistently condemned terrorism and the killing of innocent civilians.
    The same CAIR tho compiled and submitted this petition against Muslims who commit terrorism in the name of Islam:

    CAIR's 'Not in the name of Islam' Petition
    Posted 5/13/2004 12:00:00 AM

    CAIR today launched an online petition drive designed to disassociate the faith of Islam from the violent acts of a few Muslims.

    The petition CAIR’s web site (CAIR wishes you a blessed month of Ramadan.), called “Not in the Name of Islam,” allows Muslims around the world to help correct misperceptions of Islam and the Islamic stance on religiously-motivated terror.

    The “Not in the Name of Islam” petition states: “We, the undersigned Muslims, wish to state clearly that those who commit acts of terror, murder and cruelty in the name of Islam are not only destroying innocent lives, but are also betraying the values of the faith they claim to represent. No injustice done to Muslims can ever justify the massacre of innocent people, and no act of terror will ever serve the cause of Islam. We repudiate and dissociate ourselves from any Muslim group or individual who commits such brutal and un-Islamic acts. We refuse to allow our faith to be held hostage by the criminal actions of a tiny minority acting outside the teachings of both the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

    “As it states in the Quran: ‘Oh you who believe, stand up firmly for justice, as witnesses to God, even if it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be against rich or poor; for God can best protect both. Do not follow any passion, lest you not be just. And if you distort or decline to do justice, verily God is well-acquainted with all that you do.’” (Quran 4:135)

    CAIR’s petition drive comes following the videotaped beheading of an American civilian in Iraq that shocked television viewers worldwide. A CAIR commentary published today in a number of newspapers nationwide reinforces the point that Islam should not be associated with terrorism.

    “We hope this effort will demonstrate once and for all that Muslims in America and throughout the Islamic world reject violence committed in the name of Islam,” said CAIR Board Chairman Omar Ahmad. “People of all faiths must do whatever they can to help end the downward spiral of mutual hostility and hatred that is engulfing our world."

    Immediate Action Requested:

    *Encourage local mosques and Islamic organizations to endorse the “Not in the Name of Islam” petition and have their members go online to sign.
    *Promote the petition in Friday khutbas and other gatherings.
    *Send statements endorsing the petition to local media through letters to the editor or editorials. (Local communities could even hold news conference. Ask CAIR for advice.)
    *Distribute the petition action alert to friends, relatives and co-workers through personal e-mail lists.
    *Encouraging Muslim websites to link to the petition.Publish the petition action alert in Muslim media outlets.
    That CAIR?

    No... there's a user on this board named 'Aaronsongs'. GayLibertarian has an odd way of embodying that person. Aarongsongs would bust into a thread and start talking about being a gay black man or some odd **** like that when the thread had absolutely nothing to do with being gay.

    Re: U.S. Muslims launch ad to fight 'fear-mongering'

    The sensitivies of the families of victims are certainly fair.
    This belief, which is adhered to by many on the so-called "left" is absolutely ridiculous. One cannot defend the freedom of Muslims while at the same time saying that the prejudice (i.e. "sensitivities") of the families of victims are "fair". This is nothing more than a defense of racism and prejudice against Muslims in an attempt to find a "middle ground".

    These people are related to people that died in 9/11; that doesn't mean that they're necessarily smart nor right. Stop attempting to latch onto them as if they're infallible. They're not. Don't defend their hate.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

This ad speaks for them, and puts the spotlight back on those who hate them for no other reason than their religion. Jim Crow didn't die in America. It merely chose another group of people as its target.

    Yes, America is a nation founded by Christians, but our forefathers had something to say about tolerance of other religions:
    Dan, please stop being dishonest. There is a huge difference between saying the Mosque's location is inappropriate and saying all Muslims are evil. You are not a bigot because you recognize the impact of 9.11, what the terrorists said was their goal and their reason for doing so and respecting those viewpoints of the people of new York and especially the victim's families.

    Again, no one is saying they don't have a legal right to build it so I ask you once again to stick to the facts.

    Your dishonesty is really inappropriate and it doesn't help your side.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
