I have resisted weighing in on the ground zero mosque because I thought the obvious answer to the situation would surely prevail. But seeing the way it is going I think it is important to add my voice to the voices out there.
This is a no brainer people. The are not only allowed to have a mosque there but the should be encouraged to build one there. Not only that, we should give them a place right at ground zero, not 2 blocks away. The rationality is simple. First, it was not Islam that leveled the towers, it was a radical faction. Second, our country is founded on freedom of expression.
I am very disappointed in all the narrow minded people who object to the mosque. If you had a loved one killed at the trade centers then I officially sympathize with you and understand that you may not want the mosque there because there is such an incredible burden placed on you. But if you are just saying they should not put one there without such cause then shame on you.
The radical faction that did this is winning and you are the ones that are letting them win. Shame on you and do not make my country run in fear with your prejudice.
