    Most NYers go to Florida for a week or two during the winter anyway, so maybe he agreed to move it there.

    What kind of compromise is that? It isn't a fair compromise for the the mosque to be moved simply because some guy isn't going to burn a book.

    Do you honestly think that this backwater preacher with a congregation of 30 or so is in a position to demand or compromise anything with the imman? Be serious. As I said, I hope the decision is made to relocate the mosque, if for no other reason than to ease the tensions. But I certainly hope any decision that is made is not even remotely colored by the good reverend.

    I honestly got so sick and tired of hearing and reading about mosque this and mosque that. I don't care about the damn building anymore. In fact I hope it goes up. Because then I will go down with a bunch of pork sandwiches and gay men and just sit there and eat, drink and be merry.

    I think this guy had every right to do what he was gonna do.

    He didn't have to call it off, and before you start saying well... now the Imam should call off the Islamic Cultural Centre in New York. He shouldn't.

    Both have the choice to say what they will, or will not do.
    "Hey Bubba, how's about we protest Islam by purchasing Korans and giving the Koran publishers our money, y'all!"

    Pure genius.

    We're not there ... yet. Give us about twenty years or so.

    It's what's taught in Islam:


    Qur'an (3:54) - “And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers.”

    The Arabic word used here for scheme (or plot) is makara, which literally means deceit. If Allah is deceitful toward unbelievers, then there is little basis for denying that Muslims are allowed to do the same.

    Islam Permits Lying to Deceive Unbelievers and Bring World Domination! (MuslimFact)
    Just when you thought our country had moved beyond the fear and ignorance of the 1950's-1960's... This guy shows up with a rolodex of 'MuslimFact' - because the best way to learn about Islam is from a non-muslim full of fear and hate and looking to misconstrue every aspect of the their faith, smearing and twisting their beliefs into a the monster he wants it to be...

    Sir, yours are the paranoid ramblings dragging this country backwards and into the gutter of bigotry.
