Seriously, that argument makes no sense from any direction. People living further away do not have a problem with a religious center being build....it's the location where it is going to be erected!!!

Who said ALL New Yorkers? There are clearly some who are against it and clearly some who are not. A little perspective here.
You may feel that New York "belongs to the nation" or however you put it, but the people of New York have and should have the final say. They've lived in this neighborhood and the people who will buld this center are their NEIGHBORS. And the center will be open to ALL the people of the community and New York.
I never said the people of New york shouldnt have the final say.
Dont put words into my mouth toprove whatever point it is you are trying to prove.
I simply said that what happened on sept 11th effected the whole country, not just New Yorkers.
I also said that "IMO, this mosque is already built, they will build it, this is America, they can do whatever they want".
So please, before you jump into a conversation with me, make sure you quote what I SAY, not what YOU WANT me to say.
