    I think it would have been more offensive had they asked to build a minaret, or the mosque on "ground zero".

    This is totally fine. Welcome to American and worship as you like.

    I think that's part of the point --- the mosque is literally steps away from ground zero - the old WTC took up 2 city blocks. But I agree, thankfully, no minarets. I'm wondering if this mosque will piping out "call to prayer" audio 5 times a day?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It would be tasteless but if they have planning permission

    I think it is time for the Muslim community to go through some Sensitivity Training.

    You look at a Babe's ass at work, you go through Sensitivity Training.
    You make a joke that offends one of the Lib's thousands of cry babies and you Go Through Sensitivity Training.

    I think they've perfected the program by now.
    Let's expand it.

How many of the most recent 100 suicide bombers were Muslim? Is the number 99 or 100? Has any other religion produced 100 suicide bombers in the past decade... or even 10?


    I'd hate American too, if I were them.
    It's full of ignorant bigots who think they own the damn world.
    I hate America anyway half the time, and I'm not even Muslim.
    The wonder to me is that most of them don't.
    They're better, more forgiving, more tolerant people than me.

    Same thing about blacks. If I were black, I'd hate whites.
    I'm outraged and appalled on their behalf every time I think about the past, about slavery, about Jim Crow, generational poverty, white privilege, systematic racism, the current state of our penal system. Every time I read a thread about how they ought to just buck up and try harder and stop idolizing criminals and being whiners and crybabies and lazy crackheads, and then maybe they'd have it as good as white people.
    If I were black, I'd hate whites. I hate them anyway, half the time, on behalf of blacks. It embarrasses me to be white a lot of the time.
    Yet almost no blacks hate whites or wish them ill.
    They too are better and more tolerant people than me.

    But you know what, Goshin?
    For all my silliness and flaws, I'm still a better and more tolerant person than you.

    Most of you know my stance on Islam, IMO Islam is evil and the Islamic terrost involved in the 911 attacks were doing what allah requires of them. They were serving allah by fighting a holy war (jihad) against infidels. I believe building this mosque dishonors those who were murdered on 911 and is a slap in the face of thier family members.

    Oh grow up

    I don't know how it works in the United States but in UK, If you wish to build something you need permission by the local council to proceed.

    Your stance is evil.
    If their mosque is a slap in the face to you and your stance, I wish I could fly to New York and help them build it.

    So how is his point wrong.

    You hate America? What is stopping you from moving to another country. A country with the right to worship or not, with freedom and liberty. How about Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, or Yeman. Im sure they would welcome you with open arms if you converted to Islam and covered your body. Of course you would no longer be able to talk to men outside your family or drive a car but what the hell, its better than America don't you think?
