So the world didn't end after all...

I was just looking through some old posts...remember all the outrage about the ICC in New York?  The one in Tennessee?  Temecula, CA?  Sheboygan, WI?

All these were built and opened quietly after all that controversy.  Now that it is over, do the people who were so outraged by it feel as though they were played?  Like they were led to their outrage, and the flames were fanned by people with an agenda, and now that it's over it's like it never happened.

Do you feel like people were played with these fake "controversies?"  Of course it isn't controversial to build a place of worship on land you own, with the proper zoning.  Do those of you who were against it feel differently now?

I have never had a problem with them to begin with and remember those posts. :/

Some people are scared by things they don't understand and would prefer to remain ignorant.


And I highly doubt that type of person would admit that they were wrong...

Ah. Thank you. I forgot all about that. I never had a problem with them.

I hope they are all thriving and are beneficial to their communities.

I was just wondering if any of them will admit it.  A good portion of the people that were very against it are in this group.

I seriously doubt that those people are going to come in here and admit they were wrong. Most of them are probably being hateful in some other posts.
