  • Upholding the freedom of religion guaranteed in our constitution IS the right thing to do.

  • Of course it's the American thing to do. These people are Americans too and should not be discriminated against because of religion.

  • I think it is pretty offensive. They have every right to build a mosque - but it doesn't have to be Ground Zero. While not all Muslims agree with the extremists, the fact of the matter is that they were Muslims and it was BECAUSE of what they believed about their Muslim faith that they flew those planes into the building. That would be SUCH a slap in the face to me if one of my family members had been killed on a plane that day. Someone said it was similar to letting the Nazi Party have their headquarters right by a Holocaust memorial. So rude!

  • I am not talking about the mosque itself on ground zero. I am referring to the President announcing tonight at a White House dinner that he supports it and so forth. I don't think that is a Presidential desicion.
