    Religious tolerance is something that seems lost on post modern society...

    I have no problem tolerating people's religions.

    Generally it's the religous people that I find offensive.

    I find non-religious people just as offensive. I think it's a human thing and not a religious one.

    Oh well. Just need to keep work at not being offended by people.

    Which non-religious people would those be? They generally come in two types: the ones that simply don't care about you or your religion, or the ones that go out of their way to attack others for having a religion?

    Evangelists of religion and evangelists of non-religion seem fairly similar to me.

    Either way, they're religion-obsessives as far as I can tell.

    what does this have to do with religious tolerance? this is them standing up for common decency.

    and why doesn't anybody have the balls to ask the imam: "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU THINKING YOU INCONSIDERATE PRICK? OF ALL THE PLACES IN THE WORLD TO BUILD A GIGANTIC MOSQUE, YOU NEED TO DO IT A FEW FEET FROM WHERE MEMBERS OF YOUR RELIGION MURDERED THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE! WHERE ONCE THE SYMBOLS OF AMERICAN MIGHT ONCE STOOD, YOU NEED TO PUT A MOSQUE AND NAME IT, OF ALL THINGS, CORDOBA HOUSE?"

    why do we expect everyone else to be so sensitve regarding muslims, but than ask nothing of them? show an image of allah on comedy central? for god's sake we can't do that, that might offend someone. yet they don't seem to give shit that millions of americans find it offensive to build a mosque at ground zero.

    Welcome, cad. And no need to worry about a consensus; we never have them.

    I can say with absolute certainty that none of the Muslims who will be in attendance were on those planes that murdered thousands of people (and some of those murdered were muslims). So, why do you want to deny the families of the muslim victims of 9/11 a place to worship their faith? I say thats very indecent of you. And if you are going to have churches, synagogues, etc in the same area you cannot deny muslims their right to build a mosque. I agree that not showing Muhammad (not allah) on Comedy Central is ridiculous. But that was a decision made by Comedy Central and Viacom both of which are not subject to the first amendment and can edit their shows as they see fit.
