    I don't support the building of any type of religous building "on" ground zero, but I do support the rights of an existing religious center, near ground zero, to upgrade their building.

    My understanding is that it is not a mosque that is being proposed, first of all. My understanding that the proposed project is to be an islamic cultural center -- I suppose that refers to some kind of educational facility. This basic misunderstanding is the first thing that has added to the poison of the alleged debate about the matter.

    But even if it was a mosque I would support its construction at the proposed location. There is one thing people should think about. I 'm not going to rehash any arguments already made about freedom of religion, the constitutionality of the matter, security, and so forth.

    Because the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon were carried out by people purported to be Muslims (there is a serious question as to their devotion -- what with some of them regularly going out drinking and whoring), this is PRECISELY why the center should be built near Ground Zero. One would think we as Americans would want to show that we don't jump because this or that Boogey Man is invoked.

    not a chance. i no i'll sound ignorant but just knowing the muslim religion is growing in north america is scary enough, but having a mosque at ground zero is so wrong i cringe at the thought.

    No way, this is like building a museum about the history of Nazi's near a sacred jewish monument.   This is extremely insensitive everyone that experienced the 9/11 tragedy whether it was directly or indirectly.

    Absolutly not. I cannot even believe that they are thinking of building a mosque at Ground Zero after what happened its completly thoughtless and should not happen.

    No! Absolutely not. It is religious intolerance for the Muslims to force building that mosque when so many Christians are opposed. Build it somewhere else. Muslims want respect and peace? I don't think so. This is purposefully attaching themselves to what they regard as  a sacred place for their Jihad fighters who conquered a battlefield in the name of Allah. That's what is going on, plane and simple. If we don't stop the mosque, they win again. Where do we draw the line people? They can build it somewhere else. Is this the best site for a mosque? No. There are better locations. Is this necessary to promote their cause of conquering Christianity and America? Absolutely.
