    I guess those lives don't matter.

    The one thing that sucks more than being a victim of terrorism, is being a victim of hatred after becoming a victim of terrorism.

    Food for thought. Build the mosque.

    I wonder how the families of these Muslims killed on 9/11 feel about that.

    Generalize much?
    Doesn't matter to whom, exactly?
    To those who protest the building of the mosque?
    They're acting on emotions just as you are, with this thread.

    Tolerance and respect is a 2-way street.
    If those most effected, in NYC, are protesting so vehemently maybe it's still too soon to push the issue. Maybe the nerve is still too raw.

    :cool:

    Tolerance is Never a 2 way street for the Far Left. It is always Act in the way we want or we will not Tolerate you with them. Kinda like Islam.

    My point was simple. 9/11 was not an attack against a religion; it was an attack against what America stands for... FREEDOM.

    If we attack "Islam" in retaliation for the 9/11 attacks, we're attacking freedom of religion; the one of few rights that separates our nation from the rest of the world. We will be on the path to not only socialism, but possibly communism.

    Sorry, but we're not going there. Food for thought.

    Please don't misunderstand me.
    I do believe that they are perfectly within their rights to build the mosque and practice their religion without fear of persecution.
    I also think that they should take into consideration the feelings of the neighborhood involved and wait it out some until the last of the wounds can heal more.

    But it was an attack by radical islam based on their interpretation of their religion. It was an attack based on Islam's hatred of western concepts and attitudes such as capitalism.

    No one is suggesting that there is not a right to build the Mosque. The question has always been about the sensitivity of building it in that location. The left are usually about feelings, fairness and all things PC and now they have no problem with insensitivity. How do you explain that logic?

    It's been nine years. I understand the wounds involved here, but how long is long enough? Fifteen? Twenty? Fifty? A hundred? Time alone doesn't heal all wounds, but the dialogue that's taking place isn't addressing the real issues. We're being shunted off into an endless argument about a bogeyman instead of a dialogue about the event, how it's changed us and where we go from here.

    Why is that, do you suppose? Who benefits?

    I say build it. At least people are talking, hopefully something constructive will come out of that.

    On a lighter note, darn it all...I'd promised not to reply to another mosque thread. Somebody slap me, please.

    Don't kid yourself, They are not misunderstanding you. They are trying to shut you up by Labeling you anti Islam and claim you want to take away their rights. When all you are asking is that they consider our feelings as well.
