  • Offending your neighbors isn't even on the same level as offending the national memory and grief of those lost at the Two Towers all because religious zealots decided to carry out an act of  religious warfare against the whole nation and western culture. If you want a national security issue, go ahead and build that damn thing. Anything that happens to that building will cause all sorts of problems, internationally. You think the protests over the Muhammad cartoons were bad, wait until someone attacks that building! I hope doesn't get build!

  • wow. Can I have those couple minutes of my life back? Government doesn't get to tell private citizens where to worship. That's a dangerous road to go down.

    Also, they are not planning to open it on Sept 11th, and it's two blocks away from ground zero. How far away would be politically correct?

  • Thanks for the craptastic propaganda!

    Reading some of these responses makes me nervous...Some of them not just shameful, but dangerously stupid.

  • So, why there?
    ____________
    Why not there? It isn't on some hallowed land. They were already using the existing building as a prayer space. I am disgusted by the way people can just brush off freedom of religion in this country. You people are being led around by your nose by a bunch of bigots. YOU have the power to change the hate in this country. Are you part of the solution, or part of the problem?

    And no, Carpy, this stupid youtube video is NOT accurate. It is a hysterical, hateful piece of crap. Why would you take this video at face value? Why wouldn't you look into the source? Why wouldn't you take the planners of this new Islamic Center at THEIR word? There is only one answer for that...bias. You want to believe this because it goes along with your negative perception of Islam. You will never believe the 1.5 BILLION Muslims in the world are anything except a bunch of terrorists.

  • I laugh when I see the term "conqured" land or anything in relation to the mosque being built there. Has America become an Islamic country run under Sharia law????? NO it is NOT! So saying that this is being built as a sign of victory is ignorant.What was conqured? I wish people would start gathering ALL the facts before spreading hate. Learn about both sides of an argument before you pick one based off of emotion.

    Yeah! Then we will really see what those terrorist Muslims will do! *sarcastic*
    Are you serious? You are predicting a terrorist (yes, lets say terrorist as it will be an attack on US soil of US citizens) attack of the mosque presumably by extremist Christians. Then you go on to criticize the imagined response as an excuse to disallow this community center, in obvious, straightforward, defiance of the constitution and what the US stands for.

  • Now, it isn't freedom of religion. They are free to worship and have ample places to worship unencumbered
    ____________________________
    And you are the one who decides whether the space is "ample?" And they are not allowed to expand or improve upon "ample?"
