Because 3000 innocent people lost their lives there it should be treated with reverance and respect. Sacred doesn't always have something to do with religion. Would you like an amusement park erected next to where your loved ones lost their lives?

There is no amusement park near ground zero.


If memory serves (and it has been a little while), there are several bars, quite a few pizza places, a Staples, a strip bar, at least one burger king, and any number of shops selling random souvenir crap - all closer to the WTC site than the proposed mosque site. That is what I remember, I`m sure there is more.

Did I eat a slice at a Holy Pizza Shop? Should I have saved the notepad and pen I bought at Staples, and kept them as Holy Relics, as I bought them on Sacred Ground?

I would bet many or all of those establishments were there BEFORE 9/11.
And last time I checked those 3000 people weren't murdered by pizza chefs,strippers,street vendors, or Burger King employees, were they?

this topic made me think of sacred burial grounds, the ashes of many were spread over a large area on 9/11

Recent discovery at proposed reservoir site “unparalleled” in San Diego County

Bobby Barrett, Viejas tribal chairman“This site is sacred to our people, and it is culturally and historically significant for all residents of San Diego County and southern California.” – Viejas tribal chairman Bobby Barrett

“Every resident in Blossom Valley, Crest, Harbison Valley and Alpine is a stakeholder for fire safety and economic growth in their communities.” = Mike Uhrhammer, communications, director, Padre Dam

By Miriam Raftery

June 8, 2010 (San Diego’s East County) – The Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians has been granted a restraining order in the Superior Court of California-San Diego County to halt the Padre Dam Municipal Water District from "further desecrating a recently-unearthed Kumeyaay burial and ceremonial ground," a statement issued by Viejas announced. Padre Dam Municipal Water District is constructing a new reservoir and pumping station at the site, which is on approximately two acres south of I-8 near Lake Jennings Park Road and Old Highway 80.

Pearl harbor is still a memorial site.

Desecrate the ground at your own risk.

if you don't like the word sacred , substitute the word respect.


indian curse roadINDIAN CURSE ROAD
In March of 1983, the New Jersey Department of Transportation started construction in a field just off Route 47 in Deptford, between Mantua and Franklin Township, to build a new 7.2 mile stretch of Route 55. Two months later, beginning in May, mysterious deaths began to befall workers involved with the project.

"All they had to do was detour around the field maybe three or four miles and nothing would have happened," said Carl Pierce in a Star Ledger newspaper article. Pierce, or Sachem Wayandaga, the chief and medicine man of the Delaware Indians, said the land is an ancient Indian burial ground and therefore sacred.

There was a story of the bluff, the NAs warned not to build on the sacred bluff, that it offered protection for the area since before colonization in the 1980s they built on the bluff that's the year the tornado wiped out the town.

just sayin

this is a non-story meant to create divisions, just like immigration, 'socialism', 'communism' and all the other idiotic stuff they feed the rubes to distract them from the real issues.

its not sacred ground. we are not at war with Islam. 'They' are not at war with Christianity, or even the American people.

Did you know that Ground Zero has a mass slave grave underneath it?

Yes indeed this is sacred ground…I don’t need to show how this ground is sacred, and what sacred means…many did in the previous posts.

When I first heard of this mosque being build so close to the WTC site I thought, wow, a bit insensitive, and as a religion… hmmm (and I do recognize that it was the extremists that are the terrorists… but it’s still a connection to this particular religion)

But then what really bothered me was later when I found out the name was to be “Cordoba House”. Whoa..

The “Cordoba” Mosque was built on the site of a Christian church to commemorate the Muslim conquest of Spain. To me anyway, Cordoba seems a symbol of Muslim conquest.
