My God some Americans are really drating stupid. I`m atheist just for starters, but I wouldn`t tar all Christians with the KKK brush, or all catholics with the paedophilic priest one, people are people and most people are good people regardless of religion. Of course you`re only going to hear the negative things about other religions, it doesn`t sell papers if the headline is "today 700 million Muslims did absolutely nothing resembling terrorism." Don`t believe the hype.

If anything Happy Pandas if they don`t carry out their plan to build this center that would actually be a real victory for Al Qaeda. They really want to show the world how much we don`t like Muslims.

IT DOES NOT MATTER if it`s two, or several blocks, or several MILES. You did NOTHING against my point, because the fact STILL stands that it is NOT on ground zero.
The fact is, Muslims are being discriminated against in this country; the Islamic community center that`s planned on being built near ground zero is just another reason to discriminate. It`s only getting so much coverage because a.) it`s CLOSE to ground zero, and b.) people are making such an uproar over that, that it has caught the national media`s attention.
*Plenty* other mosques and Islamic community centers that were planned and/or built in the last two months that were protested didn`t really catch on to national news, because it was just a plain old Islamic community center or mosque.. but people STILL protested and caused an uproar in their local community. Just because this has caught national attention doesn`t make it okay to discriminate against a whole group of people for one extremist group`s actions.

Likewise 5Cats it wasn`t just any Muslim flying those aircraft. They were working for Al Qaeda. What I see, just as you demonstrate, is that these people are being tied to Al Qaeda and it`s wrong. You accuse me supporting intolerance and bigotry when it`s you who is supporting it. It`s not the building that disturbs me it`s the press it`s been getting.

That was actually similar to what I initially thought of as an example. Again, I think both groups have the legal RIGHT to place their houses of worship anywhere they like but it`s insensitive and cruel. Additionally, the people of America have the right to protest these places. If the mosque is build I imagine that happening immediately.

This issue is actually very simple.

Yes, they have every right in the world to build their center. They`re citizens of the US and it`s in the constitution that they can worship anywhere they like. Is it a giant slap in the face? Absolutely. Does it show indescribable insensitivity? God yes! If they want to build their center then they`ll have to deal with the hate and outrage that is stemming from their actions.

Or maybe some law could be passed that NO places of worship can be withing x-amount-of-miles-whatever of ground zero? This doesn`t seem like that hard of an issue to deal with.

Just to throw more fuel in the fire:

I am all for people practicing their own religion, wherever and whenever they like, insofar as it does not go against the laws of the country (ie, no ritualistic killings in Australia please).

But why is it that when we travel to an Islamic nation, we must abide by their customs (clothing, observing Ramadan, not preaching other faiths), but when Muslims are in Australia, they are given every leniency, in that they can wear full face-covering clothes in banks and governemnt buildings, among other things?

For the debaters here (I won`t be joining you, just tossing a biscuit)...

I assume the main reasons Americans protest things like mosques and Islamic Community Centers is because they fear it`ll bring the traditional Islamic culture, such as honour killings.

While it should be obvious that most Muslim people in America aren`t like that, it doesn`t help that that sort of thing happens in the Islam center of Canada.

How many people opposed to the building of a mosque there have also voiced anger at the building of a Christian church in any city where a fundamentalist Christian has committed a crime? Are they equally outraged that a church can built in a city where a christian pro-lifer has murdered an abortion doctor? or do they manage to separate the crime from the religion then?

Actually the mosque is being built several blocks away on top of an old Burlington Coat Factory. So it`s `fine to build it any place else..` `Why there, why not some place else?` It`s `not being intolerant, no one would care if it was other places`. Okay, so, what location WOULD be acceptable? How far away from Ground Zero? Is Staten Island good?
Except the fact when a plan to turn a former convent into a mosque and Muslim cultural center in Staten Island was protested.
Okay, so not Staten Island.
Let`s try Tennessee. Surely they won`t protest?
Except they did. Murfreesboro, Tennessee, July 10. An Islamic community center was protested.
Also, complaints about a mosque in Wilson, WI. Residents were `concerned with having a mosque in their backyard`. California. Completely on the other side of the country. Lots of liberals, right? Wrong. Mosque protests there, too. Plenty of signs saying bad things about Islam. It`s gone from just the ground zero issue to downright in

The reaction to this building is nothing more but misplaced anger upon the entire Muslim world. The families of the victims of the latter atrocity have right to be angry. But for God`s sake don`t direct it towards all Muslims.

Well Cajun247, it`s like this:
1. This is the greatest victory for Jihad since the Cole bombing and they (Jihadists, many of whom are also terrorists) don`t want us to forget that. The bombings in Spain & England were pretty big too, but this one`s still #1.
2. The guy who put up a $200K deposit? Last worked as a waiter. Maybe he`s rich and just likes to take orders for cheeseburgers? ie: there`s hidden, out-of-country monies involved.
3. There`s like 30+ mosques in NYC. They`re not bursting at the seems or anything, so WHY build a new one AT THIS SITE? Why not 10 blocks away? answer: because it`s a monument to the triumph of Jihad, that`s why.

What the hell Shadow? If it was a religious war they wanted, would they not have attacked the Vatican, or one of the prominent Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist or whichever religious site? They chose an economic, not religious center, *probably* because they felt that the USA, it`s economic and political choices, were going to destroy the world, or at least Al-Qaeda`s part of it.

Saying they used Islam as a front is pretty much groundless.

I submitted a posting with a sattelite picture of ground zero & where they`re building the mosque. Y`all gotta approve it to see it! lolz!

"Several blocks away"? If by several you mean TWO and by blocks you mean SHORT blocks, oy!
Since a short block (in my town at least) is about a third of a `long block` that makes it... ONE BLOCK AWAY (about 400 -600 FEET away.)
Pieces of wreckage hit the building in question, it is that close.

The ONLY reason to build a mosque there is to thumb their Muslim noses at us Western Infedels. It`s a long tradition in Islam to convert holy sites into mosques after conquest to show the power of Allah. Other religions do this too, but iirc it`s actually in the Koran to do this.

Blah blah blah... All religion is responsible for the hatred they spew. It separates and divides people and a the non-believer can only sit back and accept that there are corners of the planet where women are subjugated to such an extent that to look upon a womans beauty and get wood is somehow the womans fault and she must therefore be covered from head to toe in a black sack and only allowed to peek through a slit. All religion is guilty of criminal activity but forcing everyone to listen prayer calls 5 times a day is insane. It`s madness to accept it. We should be less tolerant toward religion. Tax the poo outta church. Make it too crazy expensive to own a church. I would be for that sin tax.

Islam wasn`t responsible for 9/11. Crazy extremists were. Christianity wasn`t responsible for cross burning and murdering African Americans. Crazy KKK people were. Catholics weren`t responsible for the Crusades. Tyrants in power were. It`s easy to make use of a straw man fallacy, but the reality of it is, it`s still a fallacy. People who lost loved ones in the 9/11 attacks would not be offended if they realized Islam didn`t do this. Psychopaths did this. The equivalent would be me saying all white people are responsible for black racism, because the racists were white. Or all minorities are responsible for the crimes of the Bloods, since they are primarily minority. It makes no sense.

I`m against this mosque but the constitution allows such nonsense so be it. It`s a big, giant religious F-U to all the families of the victims of 9/11. They`ll revisit the site and hopefully bring a tomato or egg to throw while they`re there. My problem with this whole situation is they`ve twisted it into another way to hate gay people. Some douche-bag thinks that opening a gay bar next door will drive away religious fanatics. As if gay people are terrorist repellent. Obama comes out in support of the "Terrorists Win Mosque" but won`t revoke DADT or come out in support of Judge Walkers level headed decision. Republicans may have a crappy message of fewer rights, more defense spending possible police state euphoria but at least they`re consistent. Democrats are too spineless to say what they believe.

1- The mosque is on private property, so there`s nothing the government can do anyways.
2- Seriously? Not all Muslims are terrorists. Building a mosque near Ground Zero isn`t supporting Al Qaeda, it`s allowing Muslim American citizens to have a place to worship.
3- There are also strip clubs at ground zero, closer than the mosque will be.
4- It won`t actually be on ground zero, but in the vicinity. There`s a lot of stuff within the distance the Mosque will be. It`s just a crowded area.
5- One of the ideas America was founded on was religious freedom, and not letting people build houses of worship opens the door to further religious oppression.
6- Umm... religious intolerance kind of fuels terrorism. If the US sends out a signal that we hate people of islamic faith, Muslims won`t be too happy. The best way to prevent another 9/11 isn`t to piss off AN ENTIRE RELIGION

2) The Ground Zero Mosque, is neither at Ground Zero, nor a Mosque. "the" however, remains accurate. How inflamed are you at "the"? That`s how inflamed you should be overall.

Zacchnasty:
"No no no common misconception"

Actually it`s a correct conception. Unless you don`t think any of your other sects worship the same God. Or many people in your own particular flavour of Christianity.

Do you all, universally, agree, on every detail that God said, meant, did and intended, everything, that all the other sects say he said, meant, did and intended?

(The answer is no by the way).

You either "don`t follow the same God", or "do follow the same God but disagree on details of that God".

For example, Muslims believe God sent Jesus through virgin birth to mankind, but that there is no reason to call him the Son of God as that implies sex.

Also, biblically, Jesus has no monopoly on the title.
Everyone is (Galatians 3:26, John 3:2)
Jacob is (Exodus 4:22)
Solomon is (2 Samuel 7:13)
Adam is (Luke 3:38)
etc.

We just think it`s the same meaning for Jesus.

The way the Medieval Catholic Church was integrated into society surely made it incompatible with democracy...

Islam makes provisions for a religious/political community, but that doesn`t mean that all Muslims will always take that message literally or even see the need for that.

The way I understand it, Islamic theologists believed that they had reached an apex of theology for a very long time, and then in the 19th century the theology split, with modernists advocating somewhat of a westernization and others supporting Wahhabism in rejection of colonialism and imperialism.

It`s those kind of attitudes, i.e., the interpretations of Islam and the Qu`ran, which make democracy and Islam incompatible on a local level (as opposed to a universal level).

Anyway, /rant off :-)

It`s perhaps not the best place, but I don`t think that anyone has any right to damage or destroy a mosque built there. You cannot say that because some crazy Muslims hijacked planes that a Mosque should not be allowed. Almost all Muslims are very nice people (from what I`ve seen, they tend to be a lot more generous and understanding than many Christians) and it is unfair to discriminate against them because the actions of a few in the Islamic population.

Well, according to the guy in charge:

"The location was precisely a key selling point for the group of Muslims who bought the building in July. A presence so close to the World Trade Center, `where a piece of the wreckage fell,` said Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the cleric leading the project, `sends the opposite statement to what happened on 9/11.`

`We want to push back against the extremists,` added Imam Feisal, 61."

Any Americans saying they shouldn`t be allowed to build a mosque there need their heads checked. Freedom of religion and freedom to peacefully assemble are there in our federal governing laws for a reason. Discriminating a group because of some bullpoo that a minority did is ludicrous.

If we were to do THAT, then I`m sorry, Christians, but you`d be SOL for basically the rest of eternity for the atrocities committed in the name of your god (Which I might add is regarded to be the same as the Islamic god).

I think that the mosque at Ground Zero is unnecessary. They don`t HAVE to build it there. Do I think they have a right to build it there? They do. Do I think it`s putting unnecessary salt on a wound? Absolutely.

It`s kind of the way I think of those nutters from the Westboro Baptist Church protesting at fallen soldier`s funerals. Do I LIKE what they are doing? Not one freaking bit. Do I think they have the right to do it? Grudgingly, yes. But within limits.

I just wish that people wouldn`t be pushing the "Freedom of ______" just to see how far it`ll go before it breaks.

"Go ahead and build your mosque by all means, but not there."

It`s a good thing the mosque is several blocks away then.

Except McDonalds isn`t actively waging war on/infiltrating western culture and society, nor is it founded on ridiculous and outdated religious ideals in order to justify killing innocent civilians.

I`m usually all about the live and let live, but come on.

You don`t think putting a religiously iconic building on a place where your religion (or at least fundementalists of that religion)killed a heap of people is pushing it?

Go ahead and build your mosque by all means, but not there.

Putting it there is a slap in the face. And I`m not even American!
