By being a stupid bigot and blaming over a billion people for the actions of 40 people on 9/11 you've helped those 40 achieve more than they ever could.
I know I'm going back on my promise not to respond to your idiocy, but this is so blatant it's hard to ignore.

No ... I am not "blaming over a billion people for the actions of 40 people on 9/11" ... terrorism has been a part of my entire life. Aircraft hijackings, bombings, kidnappings ... are you like 10 years old or something? My opinions are formed based upon hundreds of well publicized terrorist acts as well as my travels through the Middle East where I saw their despotic and bizarre Religions/Governments at work.

Ever toured africa where christians deliberately teach that condoms don't stop AIDS killing hundreds of thousands a year?

Ever seen any remote tribes who call themselves christian but still practice cannibalism?

Ever read about the largest christian church in the world comparing the publics anger at them covering up paedophiles to the nazis killing millions of jews in the holocaust?

Ever heard about a muslim country actually using WMD's?(Iraq was secular until the US made it more dangerous) I know we used poison gas as did most of europe, you used nuclear weapons and carcinogens disguised as defoliants and you'd be hard pressed to find a christian nation which hadn't committed a few massacres.

Still why blame any christian for anything they do when you aren't done foaming at the mouth at muslims yet?

Why view political acts based on the politics of the perpetrators instead of their religion?

1. No.
2. Love thy neighbor (pass the salt).
3. No. Catholics suck.
4. Lack of capability does not imply lack of intent.
5. Christians suck. Muslims suck.
6. Jihad anyone?

I'm ok with the Mosque.
Bloomberg was on TV yesterday and set the record straight:
1. That site is already used as a Islamic Center and has been for a few years.
2. There is already another Mosque 4 blocks from Ground Zero.

So, it seems there is nothing provocative about building a newer Mosque.

This is a dead issue.

Except that THIS particular Imam is a proponent of Shariah Law... so, how's that going to work for the gay community in New York?...
