    Wow, I am truly inspired by the way this mosque is building bridges and inspiring a message of tolerance towards Islam. It was definitely beneficial to their goals which are obviously completely 100% truthful to build it where they're building it.

    Re: Anti-muslim Rally at Ground Zero

    I've seen flaws in both sides of this argument.

    1.First off, can't we all just agree that for every bushel, no matter what, have their bad apples?

    2.This is not a mosque, it's a community center.

    3.This is not building a bridge of tolerance.

    4.This is not a left vs right issue. Partisanship is making it that way. This is an issue of what the individual believes is right vs wrong. Politics and upcoming elections have grabbed us away from what we as individuals feel is the right thing to do, rather then siding with an argument for the pure fact that it may benefit our associated platform.

    5.Calling someone a political hack for siding on this issue, from what I've seen, is double-edged.
    I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

    Laura Ingraham thought it was a good idea, once:
    YouTube - New Islamic Mosque at Ground Zero? (12.21.09)

    And it attracted no ire despite being front page news in the New York Times back in December, 2009.

    How the "ground zero mosque" fear mongering began - War Room - Salon.com

    It only began to attract ire when conservative media made it into an election issue.
