    One argument in favor of the mosque I remember was that, if it isn't built, it will cause resentment and possibly incite violence in the middle east against "Westerners". I always objected to the coercive nature of that argument.

    As long as it's done legally, who cares if people protest the building of the mosque? I don't think anyone is advocating that the force of the law be used to prevent the building of the mosque, but rather, the persuasion of public opinion.

    Ah, then I stand corrected. Sounds like a politician catering to public opinion polls. I can say it's not my argument that the law be used to preclude the building of the mosque, but I neither am I incensed at people using free speech to make arguments against it (as well as for). Particularly since those who oppose it are just as diverse as those who don't.

    After all a tiny percentage of catholic priests molested some kids. Letting them build near elementuary schools and day cares might be too much of a temptation and would be offensive to those who were abused by child molesters.
    This is obviously a joke.

    That's a slippery slope notion that citizens need to reject.

    I agree with you that public opinion will be persuasive. You asked who cares, and I think it's the fact that lots of people care very much and don't want that mosque built on that spot.

    That was my first thought, but then I thought about the fact that the Church has never co-operated with police and has repeatedly shuffled known molesters from parish to parish. Since this is an administrative failure at the managerial level, then the logical alternative is to take the bull by the horns. Not a joke at all. A very reasonable argument. If it were your mythical Uncle Louie or Aunt Mabel doing the molesting and got caught, they would be wearing big placards with blinking lights notifying the population of their nature.

    The Catholic Church has never cooperated with the police? Really?

    Good luck with that one, people have no problem using the thugerment against people they dont like. Despite New York state being one of the highest states for eminent domain abuse, many Paladino supporters saw nothing wrong with it. They viewed as getting back at the left with the lefts tactics.

    There's a history in Ireland of police collusion in the cover-up.
