Americans are debating bitterly the proposed building of a mosque near New York's ground zero, but for years Muslims have prayed quietly at the Pentagon only 80 feet from where another hijacked jetliner struck.

Pentagon officials say that no one in the military or the families of the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks has ever protested.


It's true.

I bet they pray the same prayer as me. I pray that my religion is not portrayed to the world as an evil one. I am a Christian. We have the same God, all of us.

I don't know if we all have the same God but then who am I to limit God?
I might think it would be great if we all had a good heart though.

American Muslims (hate to have to distinguish between "American" races!), anyone, even very nosey people are welcomed IN my house.

Frankly, I do not see the link here with good people entering into an already existing dwelling and praying versus the mosque issues. But then some just need to find trouble where the isn't I guess


It boils down to tolerance and the genuine good will of our neighbors.
In this instance, there is good will and nothing is being forced.

The chapel at the Pentagon is interfaith...common in military areas.

www.washingtonpost.com...
The chaplains who serve the Pentagon have always wanted a chapel. It took Sept. 11, 2001 -- and the approval of the president -- to finally get one, said the Pentagon chaplain, Col. William Broome , a former Vietnam helicopter pilot.

"Here is a place on the site of disaster where faith has sprung to bring hope," he said. "There is hope in this building."

About 90 people can fit in the chapel. It's kept "spiritually neutral": No cross, Torah or Koran is on permanent display. Such symbols are brought out for the various services.

I served with a heroe in the Army who just happened to come from a Muslim family. In fact, I'm sure there were many more than that one. Being a Muslim does not make you a terrorist, just as being a Christian does not make you a child molester. Whether people like it or not, there are many Americans who are also Muslim. In fact, this same argument was made about black people and Native Americans at one point in time.

Pander to these idiots? You're speaking of other Americans here. How do you feel about Muslims serving in the military?

Don't play those games with him.

It's an obvious bait post to get a rise out of people. We should be ignoring people like this in order to get ATS back to what it was.

If they stop getting attention they WILL go away.

Everyone gets the benefit of the doubt with me...once.
My guess is he won't be back to answer that.

No one who is asked the really HARD questions about this issue...i.e. where they see this heading...seems to knows how to answer them.

Yeah I mean how dare we allow people the right to pray?
And at an interfaith chapel?




Unfortunately there are idiots everywhere, as your presence in this thread proves, but I see no wrongdoing in allowing people to pray, wherever and to whomever they so choose.

I understand, and for clarification, was not trying to attack you. I apologize if it came off as harsh.

Well, behind the wheel of a car isn't a good time.


Tolerance in the military. Maybe we should put them in charge of the media. Not like it can get any worse.

Au contraire, If said vehicle is veering off the road in some extreme weather condition or something... I'd say it's the Perfect time to pray
