Although i do wonder why no-one has posted anything about the whore house right across from the Vatican, is it because it has not been made public....oh wait..yes..it hasn't been drummed into the cerebral cortex and has not been approved as psy ops issue.
People , use your brain , don't abuse. it.
Humans are so predictable...it makes our job far less complicated...

I'm not trying to insult you or anything so I'll spell it out. Last time I checked....The Vatican is not waging a war against the infidels...Sure it did in the past...That is not what is happening now.. The Muslim religion is stuck at around 700 A.D. Why, because they have been catapulted into the modern age by wealth. No time to change, now they are trying to change us violently.
But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."

Just him saying this proves that this faux outrage is completely ridiculous. If Ground Zero is such a protected site, then one would think a gay bar would not be acceptable to conservatives.

Funny...People laugh at the notion that Islam is a generally peaceful religion, yet the only ones being antagonistic here are Christians. But it's ok when we do it.

I have a better idea....
HOT DOG STAND !!! right out in front of the masque......like 5 of them !!
Owned by Jewish men....
And the hot dog carts will be painted in Jewish flag colors...
Or maybe have men in lil short shorts with leather hats sell them too....
It's not like any of the above is illegal.....
If people purposely piss you off....you need to do the same to them.
that is the only way they will know how you feel.

im(sic) an american(sic) and i dont(sic) appreciate you assuming i dont want a mosque next to 'ground zero', therefore i can only assume muslims do not want you assuming those things of them.
it just leads me to believe that you know so very little.
also, the building they are constructing the mosque in was the old burlington coat factory.... and there is a mosque that pre-dates the WTC in the area too....
but im gona(sic) guess you didnt know that.
So tell me something “im an american (sic)”54v!0531f, do you appreciate the imam that supports the feeling of the peaceful muslims holding their peaceful signs below, who will be preaching his support of Hamas, and sheria law at ground zero, do you admire him for using Saudi money? Will you visit the gay bar next door?
If you really are an American, you need to take a 4th grade English class and learn to spell simple words.

My husband was in the second tower on 9/11 and escaped right after the first plane hit. He'll be the first to support the mosque and the first to support the gay bar next to it.
This is akin to being stuck in the middle of a gun battle with the Cripts
and the Bloods, and then saying you support drug dealing street gangs!
Something is very wrong with that!

You posted those pictures on the last page of this thread also, was it really necessary to post them again?
Where are they from, by the way? Or are you just grabbing the most inflammatory pictures of Muslims you can from wherever and whenever?
Sources for Imam Rauf's support for the opinions on those signs?
Source for his support of Hamas? (Yes, he has refused to condemn them as a terrorist organization; that is different from actively supporting them or their activities).
Have you read the Imam's book on Sharia law to find out what his interpretation of it is, or are you just assuming the worst?

The photos are no more inflammatory than having a mosque built at Ground Zero.
Sources for imam Ralphs support of Hamas. From The New York Post,
Please don’t attempt to discredit or spread your disinfo in my Thread.
You obviously support this obamination, however I do not value your opinion.
Will you visit the mosque? The gay bar next door? The BBQ at 27th St? Will you walk 10 steps behind your man? Will you refuse to vote because it is against Sheria law?
Will you cover your entire body with clothing? Do you support the stoning of women?
Will you not object to an opinion of your husband’s even if you know it is wrong?

Conservatives kind of forget that THEY were against Women's Suffrage in this country. Now they use the "don't let women vote" as a great reason why Muslims are more backward and evil than we are.
Just who brought YOU CONSERVATIVES kicking and screaming into the 20th Century? Before you condemn Muslims -- maybe you need to thank a Progressive for having civilized you.
Whether it's reality or NOT for many muslim countries -- it won't stop the FACTS being used for this argument -- reality never gets in the way of a good Conservative screed. But women would have to mind their place, get back into the kitchen and let the men folk vote about two weeks after the Religious Right regained a death grip on our country.
So are they critical of the Muslims or just jealous?
