im not at all a fan of organize religion, but i guess if i have to i agree that people should have freedom to there own religion, & i dont have any problems with muslims nor do i think that we should blame all muslims for what the crazy ones did on 9/11, but... let me ask this question.. do you think it would be okay for someone to build an abortion clinic right next to a christian church? they are both legal, & we are legally allowed to get an abortion. but does that make sense? would it cause problems? would it cause more problems then its worth? would there be protesters outside constantly, people possibly trying to blow it up & kill the DR? wouldnt it make more sense to just avoid all of those problems, and put the abortion clinic somewhere else?
Some of you make it sound as if the proposed site is miles away from Ground Zero...when in fact it was close enough for part of the landing gear from one of the planes that hit the towers was embedded in the roof of the building!
And EVERY time construction is begun anywhere close to Ground Zero, HUMAN REMAINS from 9/11 victims are STILL being found--NINE years later!! How will you feel if this project goes through as planned and MORE human remains are found?!
For such a "peaceful and loving" religion, they sure aren't very compassionate considering the outrage!! This mosque will only serve to divide the city further, not bring people together.

Should black people make it easier for the KKK or other racist groups and all move to one state on the other side of the country? I mean after all, if the black people would just realize that their mere existence is offensive then they could avoid all types of hate crimes by just living away from racists.
The mosque already existed and these people only want the same right to rebuild their place of worship. The members of this Mosque did not harm anyone. These people are AMERICANS. Muslim Americans serve in our military. Has everyone forgotten that it wasn't only Christians that lost their lives that day? Innocent Muslim Americans died too as well as people of other religions and heritages.
