Never claimed it wasn't subjective. However, I also never claimed that the exact location of the building was a subjective thing either. You might want to spend more time paying attention to your level of comprehension and less time trying to play forum psychologist in the future.Now that is subjective! Not the location of a building!
The building IS ground zero, it was struck by a huge piece of one of the actual planes that hit the towers.
This is not a Community Center. They will not be offering religious services for any non-Muslim members of the community, they will be offering religious services to only Muslims, non-Muslims will be allowed entry the same as anyother Mosque so that they may receive Dawa.
Mosque - any place of Muslim worship. A jami-masjid or Friday Mosque is a major mosque where weekly prayer services are performed and a sermon or khutbah is given.
It's literally the textbook defintion of a Mosque.
This is a community center like Evangelical Mega-Churches are community centers.
* a 500-seat auditorium
* a restaurant and culinary school
* cultural amenities including exhibitions
* education programs
* a library, reading room and art studios
* childcare services
* a mosque, intended to be run separately from Park51 but open to and accessible to all members, visitors and our New York community
* a September 11th memorial and quiet contemplation space, open to all
Yeah, doesn't sound like a community center at ALL.
And two blocks away is NOT ground zero. It's - get this - two blocks AWAY from it. You can't even see ground zero from the building. Not that it even ****ing matters.
Actually, that sounds quite a lot like the various buildings at the University I went to. I never knew I was at a mosque all that time...

English not your first language? This building is ground zero, it was struck by a huge piece of landing gear from one of the planes that struck the towers. That's ground zero by any reasonable definition of ground zero.And two blocks away is NOT ground zero. It's - get this - two blocks AWAY from it. You can't even see ground zero from the building.
