    The question my child is why shouldn't they be able to build their Mosque? Is it because right-wing rectal passages like you despise Islam? I think so.

    More confusing the issue because some people are dishonest

    Should they be allowed to build the mosque? You bet, the government should not tell them they shouldn't build it.

    But, they should CHOOSE not to in light of the fact that the people they claim to want to build bridges with oppose it 2:1.

    I liken this to our own soldiers in Afghanistan, they sometimes come upon villages where they should destroy the whole village because it is infested with with Taliban soldiers and supporters, but they CHOOSE not to because that would offend those who we really do want to build bridges with.

    Just because you CAN do something, does not mean you SHOULD do something.

    It is private property and the idiots can do what the want with it.

    Is it in bad taste building the mosque. Yes
    Cant it be stopped. Yes
    Will it be stopped. NO
    Can the idiots CHOOSE not to be offensive and not build or build somewhere else. Yes
    Will they CHOOSE not to be offensive. Maybe

    I was with you until the last sentence. They absolutely will not choose to not be offensive.

    Is the group a legal group?

    Do they own the land?

    Is the land zoned for what they want to build?



    If the answer to all three is yes....then, of course.

    Nope. The Cordoba House is funded by terrorists and is meant to establish sharia in the US.

    Let them build their fucking monument to the strength of Islam and the celebration of the butchery of Western innocents in Wisconsin.

    First, you should change your policy regarding 5 line posts since you disregard it.

    Second, they should be allowed to build it. As long as zoning laws are enforced and it is private property it matters not if it is a Cathedral or a Mosque. Just because a few idealists slaughtered a lot of people there does not and should not paint all Moslems in the same light. Look at all the infamous people in the world who did nasty things in the cause of religion, politics or government. This is a free country (at least I beleive it to be so) so live and let live!
