Its next door to my understanding not "on"

Other than that I don't know much about it. Besides there is a big hullabalou about it.

It's America. A mosque has the same right to be there than a Cathilic Church. Whoever shelled out the cash to own the property has the right...

IMO, nothing except a memorial should be built there. Whether it's a park with a small twin tower statue or what have you, nothing else should go there.

Someone wanting to build a mosque there has an ulterior motive, and I take it as a slap in the face. It's extra salt in the would that a place of worship that is the same religion a bunch of individuals pervert into terrorism is going to be built there.

Why a mosque there? Just good real estate? There's something else going on there.

Many different races and religions of people died in the 9/11 attacks. Why is it just one religion is going to be catered to? This just isn't right.

Go back to the USSR and cry about something like this.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” – First Amendment of the United States Constitution

Again its down the friggin block, not "on" the site

Although I don't think it should be disallowed, the woman from the video does seem to want the site out of spite. That was just my impression.

I don't see what that has to do with it. Everyone is free to practice their religion pretty much where ever they want to. 2,976 people died there in the name of fundamentalist Islam. Why does a mosque need to be built there? Why does anything EXCEPT for a memorial to those individuals who died there?

Kelly, you should no more than anyone I am not a fan of any type of religion so it's not like I want a Catholic church built there or something.

So if a shopping mall went up there you'd be ok with it?

We might as well just tear down the WWII monument and Vietnam memorial if someone else has the cash to put something else there.

Ok, well there goes my argument.

I thought it was actually on the site per the article I had read. Two blocks away doesn't matter to me.

Damn internet misinformation.

wow, where were you when they put in the gettysburg mall? There will be a memorial there, don't worry. But why stop progress? That basically says "whacko terrorists came in and made this land unusable for the rest of time". Screw that. Build more towers, a mall, a sushi restraunt, hell, even a golf store. Don't stop progress over some whacko religious d-bags.

Says a lot of people.

If someone could theoretically buy the Washington monument, and build a church there, do you think that would be cool?

I see your point there. You can't have a memorial for every tragedy that happens in life.

If the monument originally took up 50 acres, and it could still convey the same emotion and meaning on 4 acres, then sure.

That would probably work, but I'm talking about completely tearing it down.
