I hate to use Fox as a source...but check this out:
It says there were two Mosques in the second World Trade Center tower, that had been there at least since 1999.
What does this mean?
Well, I don't really know.
I didn't know that...., how interesting.
Not that it makes a difference to me, I could careless as my earlier posts have noted. But I think it is interesting, because #1. It's kinda cool. I didn't know that they rented office space for that kind of services, being "churchy" that is. And,
#2.Because for the obvious reason, which everybody is arguing about these days.
Very, very, very interesting.
I saw that report the other night. One more piece of evidence that American Muslims lost a lot on that day too and have as much right as other Americans to build in the area.
If the mosque inside the WTC has to be built, it is necessary to build the twin towers first. Arguing in this way to justify the mosque will not be in interest of USA. There were around 3000 people inside the towers, Who will bring them back ? Their souls wont forgive the perpetrators, supporters and sympathisers of that carnage.
Being afraid of the terrorism, people tend to take it everything in this way of justifying negative things. Total neglect of terrorism will only help to see a happy, prosperous and free world.
I don't care if somebody said it already... You're an idiot, that was Keith Olbermann from msnbc's, Countdown with Keith Olbermann.
I mean, what's more to say?
The federal government can't ACTUALLY ban a mosque from being built - The Constitution's Article 1, Amendment 1, and amendment 10 in conjunction with one another make this very clear.
Then, New York's constitution makes it illegal for the State of New York to ban the building of it.
So, it's really a "New York City" issue.
If the people of NYC value property rights, religious freedom, and freedom in general, they'll allow it. If they don't, they won't.
I think it IS stunning that this information was not reported earlier, but all that this means is that Major Media companies are worthless entirely, and that we should rely on our own knowledge of the Constitution and our own values.
I didn't know that there were two mosques in the WTC. I would have thought that would have been significant in 2001, not just now that religious freedom is being attacked with this mosque issue. This SHOULD be common knowledge so that Americans can have a more well rounded view of Islam, not just of the mosque issue, but thanks for the info!
Constitutional provisions apply to normal things only. In sensitive cases like the destruction of twin towers and the continuing dispute on the mosque which have international ramifications, wont apply to them. No constitutional provision allows to disrupt public peace.
To do what? Form over 300,000,000 governments? Each person gets to decide his/her own laws?
I'm all for each individual being their own government, and then engaging in foreign policy with one another: "I agree that I will come to this company every day for 7 hours, and you will agree to pay me 1 ounce of gold"... or whatever.
At least THEN it would be voluntary.
And, it's weird that you'd be against the idea of it being a "NYC issue"... cuz... that's what it is. I'm not familiar with the laws, but every statement i said in my post is accurate : Congress can't makea religious law, New York State can't.... so at the very MOST it's a NYC issue: people getting together and voting on it.
At the very least, interpreting the constitution needs to be a state issue: If we let the federal government define the restrictions on the federal government, then... why... we'd have what we have today: "Hey, even though the term 'general welfare' is actually a RESTRICTION on the federal government, let's make it mean 'anything that affects more than one person'!!"

Were the founding fathers of this country Christians? I have always been under the impression that our country was founded by people who were escaping religious persecution. Why then, do so many people claim that this country was created under Christianity? I could be wrong, but I...
