Do you think everyone would be up in arms about the Mosque near Ground Zero if...

It was a Church and not a Mosque?

  • No only because it was not Christians that did this , it was muslims in the name of Allah. I am not saying all muslims believe that but it is a little disrespectful to choose that spot.

  • No, I don't think it would as controversial an issue if it was a church as opposed to a mosque. But there would still be some people who would object. Regardless of any situation, there will always be people who will be unhappy about any particular thing you put in front of them. Unfortunately, you can't always please everybody.

  • We wouldn't have heard about it.

  • I personally don't understand what the big deal is. Maybe I am missing the idea of what is so bad about building a mosque.

  • Nope

  • All of the attackers were Muslims. It's just disrespectful to build a mosque at the site where thousands of people were murdered in the name of Islam.

  • I don't understand the issue either. A place of worship is a place of worship... Period. It doesn't make any difference to me where they put up a Mosque, Church or any other building... This idea that Muslims attacked the towers so a Mosque doesn't belong here makes about as much sense as refusing to allow a Church to be built in Ok. City... Being Muslim, wasn't the motivation behind the attacks, and the Islamic religion as a whole didn't and doesn't support the actions of those terrorists any more than the Christian religion supports terror attacks like the OK Bombing...

  • Of course they wouldn't be upset. And I don't understand the logic. So if the bombers had been Christian then there should be no Christian churches built around there? That is some very bizarre logic in my opinion.
