    This guy says it better than I ever could. Notice he mentions Fox at 1:40 in.

    Pat Condell on Ground Zero mosque: "Is it possible to be astonished, but not surprised?"

    Pat Condell ably articulates everything that's wrong about the mosque at Ground Zero.

    I think I might like to see a mosque built near Ground Zero. (The actual site, no...that should be a memorial). Maybe it would help heal some of the divisiveness and anger that has been so unfairly heaped on American Muslims.

    There isnt a mosque at ground zero. A few blocks away they are building one but not at Ground Zero. And people have freedom of religion. Get used to it.

    Had there been a mosque at ground zero, we'd still be referring to the place as the World Trade Center instead of "ground zero".

    Of course, one wonders why any house of worship (other than for the continued worship of Mammon, of course. I propose a hugh GOLDEN CALF be erected) would be included at the New Trade Center.

    I doubt it matters really. If Muslims want to remind people about how a group of Muslims blew up the twin towers they can by building a mosque near it, remind people how the religion of peace treats America.

    What building a Mosque near ground zero is doing in simple terms: :dig:

    One supposes that such a place might be also work to remind some AMERICANS that hundreds of people of the Moslem faith ALSO worked and died in that event.

    Still...putting places of worship (of any kind) in that building strikes me as plain silly.

    Only the left will see that, as for everyone else it will do the opposite effect the Muslims want it to have.

    I think it's in bad tastes, but we have religious freedom.

    Well, surely the design of the memorial itself is not gonna include a mosque. I always assumed this was an argument about one nearby.

    Pssst...editec. Absolutely correct about the Mammon comment.
