Mosque, Cordoba, Park 51, Cultural Center ... ?

by Ockham on 08-23-10 at 09:27 AM
The media is apparently moonlighting for Imam Feisal by changing the vernacular of the Manhattan Mosque. First it was the "Cordoba House" even after the connotation "Cordoba" raise critics hackles claiming such a site would be a "monument" to Islam's victory over the United States. Such statements are not investigated, however the words used in this debate by the media are changing.

What is the concept of "winning" when posting on a debate forum such as DP? Constantly I see posters throwing the concept of "winning" which is alien to me. Where is my prize? This obtuse concept should be ridiculed and rejected. We post on forums to exchange ideas, opinions and thoughts.
