    Some people took it from this angle. However, I seem to remember there were a decent number of people suggesting that the city itself should disallow them, legally, from building upon the land or purchasing the land or whatever else.

    Sure, I'd agree with this. I don't believe that's what's going in here though, unless we're saying that the Muslims who oppose the GZ mosque blame themselves.

    As you think back, was it really a "decent number" or only a couple who posted a lot? I don't doubt what you say either way. It was never my argument though. Does it really make a difference? It seems pretty apparent that those who support mosque don't see any argument against it as being legit.

    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.
    Lol. At this point it's almost possible to make the argument that such a regulation would be narrowly tailored under due process analysis with a straight face.

    On the other hand, an OP with a ludicrous and inflammatory proposition has survived for 15 pages.

    Inflammatory? How? There is nothing inflammatory about my thread. It was made to illustrate a point.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Suggesting that Catholics shouldn't be allowed around "elementuary" schools (is that where people go to learn the basics of running a mortuary? ) and day cares is pretty inflammatory, and I'm not even Catholic.
