  • Mosque to go up near New York's ground zero

    Not sure why I'm posting this. One of the reasons that I love this country is that anyone of any religion can worship freely regardless of what God they may follow.

    The patriot in me wants to defend the building of this mosque, but the patriot in me also knows that it was the peace loving religion of Islam that destroyed those towers and 2976 lives on American soil a few blocks away from the construction site.

    Opinions?

    New York (CNN) -- Plans to build a mosque two blocks away from ground zero have set off an emotional debate among area residents and relatives of victims of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.

    Cordoba House project calls for a 15-story community center including a mosque, performance art center, gym, swimming pool and other public spaces.

    The project is a collaboration between the American Society for Muslim Advancement and the Cordoba Initiative, both of which work to improve relations with followers of the religion.

    The two groups presented their vision to part of the Community Board of lower Manhattan on Wednesday night.

    Ro Sheffe, a board member who attended the meeting, said the project did not need to get the board's approval.

    "They own the land, and their plans don't have any zoning changes," Sheffe said. "They came to us for our opinions and to let us know their plans. It was purely voluntary on their part."

    I would like to believe that all moslems are not terrorists. Nor do I want to see anyones constitutional rights trampled on. On the one hand if they are not allowed to worship freely they will be forced underground. At least if they can worship in public Big Brother can more easily keep an eye on them. I would expect peace loving people of any religion would respect what happened on 9-11 and take the feelings of the victims in to account.
    A touchy subject.

        I say no. And I don't give a damn what land they own. My HOA can tell me what kind of fence I can build and what color to paint it. The City of New York can man up and do the same.

        Cutting through all the crap of political correctness and hiding behind "freedom of religion" statements... sorry folks. This leaves a bad taste in my mouth. And if they're so concerned about opinions... here's one: Muslim Extremists who shared their same faith methodically planned and then coldly murdered nearly 3000 Americans. If they want to make a statement of unity, skip the pool, the rec center, and the fry shack, and build three churches all in a row. A Christian Church, A Jewish Temple, and a Mosque. Then erect a plaque in front of each reminding all what transpired a decade ago and CONDEMNING what those bastards did, and do it in the respective languages of the adjacent church. Ya, that's right. You gotta make a plaque in Arabic as well. Time we heard you say it out loud! When crazy Christians blow up an abortion clinic or shoot a doctor, we acknowledge it. Most of us condemn it. The moderate Arabic air waves were (and still are) pretty damn quiet when it comes to condemning 9/11.

        I cannot even believe this. Our own pompous civility will lead to our downfall.

          I agree with RA. This is so offensive to me, I could spit.

              They know that we know, that they know we know that they know that buildings come down all the time. This is all part of that arab humiliation game, and they think that they have won a round forgetting what happened at the US Embassy in Moscow or the Russian embassy in Turkmenisbad or the Taliban embassy in Pakistan,,,bad sewer gas. They forget that Obamma is now on the way out and maybe, just maybe Shrilliry will make a token gesture to America after she is installed in the WhiteHouse in 2011
