Every holy faith deserves a spot to preach. The tower they are planning's purpose is to show a sign of solidarity with not only The NYC Metro Area but with the WTC as well.
I don't think I can agree with you. I find a very high lack of sensitivity to the whole situation. I see many preach that we need to be sensitive to the Muslin culture, and I agree, but I think it should be a two way street.
I just wonder if a extremist Christian group blew up some Muslin icon in the middle east, killing many, and then another Christian group decided to build a Church on the spot. I would lean towards they would be killed as they laid the first brick….hehe

As to why it's titled that way I can't answer although I'll speculate it's to get people "up in arms" over something that should be allowed without conflict. As for some proof, here's a few.
In July 2009, the Muslim-run real estate company Soho Properties purchased a five-story building located two blocks north of the former World Trade Center site
The ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee said Monday he favors an investigation into the funding of a proposed mosque near ground zero.
Plans for mosque near Ground Zero outrage Beach councilman.
(Zoom in on the map and you'll see it's location that's not at ground zero.)
Does this new information change your views at all?

I would like to get some capital money together and have a BBQ joint next door that sold nothing but pork products.
I'd send the neighbors smoked hams for breakfast, and ribs for lunch.
I'd be very neighborly to the dirt bags.
You say all those things like its a bad thing. Would you care for a little Mettwurst?

Then why is it considered to be Ground Zero? Either it is or it isn't on ground zero. If it's not then why all the misleading to think it is?

That's probably one of the most hateful things I've ever seen on ATS. It reeks of ignorance and flies in the face of all this country stands for. Tolerance of religion if it's yours, right? They've really done a number on you with this Muslim thing, haven't they? Pity.
