My view since the very beginning, has been that if they truly intend for this place to be representative of a "Bridging of varying faiths and cultures", then why not make it so? Why not bring Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims, Buddhists, Christians, etc. all together as one, worshipping under a single roof, side-by-side?

THIS HAS TO BE THE DUMBEST MOST INSENSITIVE SUBJECT POST OF ALL TIME. Nevermind who the true culprits responsible for 911 were, we'll never know. But to passively let a 100 million dollar (lets be frank here) islamic themed facility be built anywhere near a place of great sorrow and suffering caused by said religion blamed by our government is in bad form and even worst taste. I can give a phuc less about your splitting hairs about what denomination or faction of this crazy religion called islam that should be held accountable. They are all crazy to me. The poster of this trash is a cold hearted senseless person with no regard to the victim's families or the victims themselves. Pornshops, drug hangouts, pre-existing mosques and whatever else you happened to include in your childish diagram are supposed to represent what? Those settings represent the commonalities of every major metropolitan city in America . The locals' emotional vehement defiance to this utter costly nonsense is being ignored because of a few "people" like you. That is the true tragedy. I dare you to cross any red white and blue AMERICAN New Yorker with your rhetoric and see if you don't come out black and blue... that is if you're still alive.

And you're ability to rant comes from your "special" powers?
We live with an oil based societey, not hemp, wind, ocean currents, solar, nor any other stupid idea that the tree huggers want, we live our lives through OIL, period. If you are so in tune with Mother earth, get off the keyboard and actually be a man-thing.
You are coming off as one that wants all of the kindness of the currency, but none of the realities.

Thoughts?

Edit To Add: I would urge all those who are in opposition to the mosque to also read the following thread in order to perhaps understand our view a bit better.

[edit on 9/3/2010 by tothetenthpower]


I have an idea OP, how about we resurrect the biggest Christian Church smack dab in the middle of the Middle East and see how they feel about it.

Point is we are an established Christian Nation and Muslims are spreading their crap all over the US. I, personally would not consider myself religious, but do have enough common sense and morals to understand the real reason behind building the Largest Mosque in the US right down the street from Ground Zero. It does not take an idiot to realize the true motives behind such an endeavor!

Next there will be so many Muslims attending that the street leading down to ground zero will be full of worshipers blocking the streets like the streets in Paris. Could It turn out like this?

The only picture that sums it up for me....

... is the one of Muslims around the world jumping and shouting in joy because America had been wounded in their eyes. There were shots like that from every Muslim state that I can think of. They were dancing in the streets....!

Yeah, go on Americans, let them do what they want, and after this you'll never be able to stop Islams hold on society, politics, schools (yes, Christianity is out but God forbid we insult the muslims in our schools). USA will end up like Albania which once had no muslims and is now a muslim country in all intents and purposes.

Even the mosque part will be open to non-Muslims (as is the nearby mosque that the imam involved in the project has led for decades).



Yes, that picture does nicely to sum up the pro-mosque's total historical ignorance.

Tell me, how do the ladies swim in burkas?

See also: Umayyad conquest of Hispania
then read: Battle of Covadonga
That is the accurate perspective on what events are unfolding in our modern world. This war never ended as far as some extremists are concerned.

I must admit I am very surprised at the way you americans all going about this mosque business.

It seems you are pretty much 50/50.

I can't tell wether this is a good thing or a bad thing.

Peace and don't let them divide you!

Muslim's get a free pass on hate speech. I've never seen leftists take such a great bow to religious freedom than when Muslims are in question. Would they so defend Jews, Christians, Hindus? No.

Let's all live in happy-land and ignore the fact that there are some radical imams who's goal is nothing short of turning all of the Western Kingdom into 8th Century Spain.

This issue is bigger than religious freedom or free speech. As far as I am aware, yelling "fire" in a crowded theater is still not protected by law nor is slander. This mosque is the religious equivalent.

I have been reading the posts.

Least us forget! Islam has its own elite! and another above them.

We are but pawns in a giant game of snakes and ladders.

Peace.

you appear tp presume that moslems were responsible for the downing of the trade towers. this is incorrect but many are still subject to this type of official brainwashing. you here such stuff often enough by the zionist media and you think its a given.

Nip what in the bud? If the US is going to be converted to Islam then the Muslims sure are taking their time seeing how they have been in this country from the start. So at the rate they are going we should be converted in about the year 5000. We should band together and drive out the hatemongers then we would be doing the country a favor.

Perhaps this should sum up the controversy in ONE picture




Sorry its just too big to fit the page.This is only about half.

The whole picture contains photos of all but 92 of the victims.

Uh... it's people like you who make me worry about America. Ever try reading the Constitution?

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"
(en.wikipedia.org... the link, if you need it!)

That's the Constitution by the way. We are not an established Christian Nation. We are actually THE COMPLETE EXACT OPPOSITE OF AN ESTABLISHED CHRISTIAN NATION since Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion xDDD

Oh, and there is that little bit about the free exercise of religion, you know, the Constitutional, American right that these people have to build this mosque.

But really, I know you won't change your mind about the mosque. But seriously, do NOT call this nation an Established Christian Nation. You sound like you've never read the Constitution.

By freedom of religion, it means anything that is a Christian denomination actually.
