    "common sense Americans"

    That's an oxymoron if I ever heard one.

    When we have ~20% of adults who can barely read/write, then you may have a point. America is home to some of the world's most ignorant people.

    So a Christian who is against the building of a mosque at a particular place is a utomatically a bigot, while a Muslim against the same mosque is not? PLease... enlighten us as to how?

    Sorry, no joke. If you google, you'll find there are indeed prominent Muslins (including a prominent prince in the mid-east) who spoke out openly againt the planned Islamic center/Mosque near ground zero.

    You clearly didn't read my post very well. I said the majority of people who are against the building of a mosque are bigots. I didn't mention anything about christians or muslims. And I (nor the question in the poll) didn't mention anything about being against building a mosque in a particular location.

    As for your question, no, I don't think a Christian who is against building a mosque in a particular place is automatically a bigot. I think it depends on what their reason is for not wanting it there. I think it's also possible for a muslim who didn't want a mosque built in a certain place to be a bigot as well.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Your exact words were...
    I think the vast majority of people who are against the building of a mosque are bigots though.
    Only now have you qualified that to mean 'depending on their reasons for opposing the building of a mosque'...

    which was the response I was trying to elicit from you... a clarification of your opinion.
