Mosques in your city?

So I bet most of you have heard that they're planning to build a mosque over the site of a building destroyed on 9/11. I'm curious about everyone else's opinion, because I have trouble understanding how this is not reasonable or sensitive to the victims of 9/11. Isn't this like saying "well that wasn't us, in fact we like New York and shit and we're pretty sorry about what some extremist assholes did"? I really can't wrap my head around criticisms and it seems like most people think it's an awful idea. Why am I the only person who is not crazy?

I can't say I understand what's wrong with it either. Honestly a lot of the arguments against the mosque strike me as being a bit sensationalist or propagating misinformation. It's as though people can't tell the difference between Muslims and terrorists.

Yes I honestly can't see how it's 'disrespectful' of the victims of 9/11 either. It does seem as Cow said, that some people are incapable of realising that Muslim does not equal terrorist.

I really can't believe the deal this has turned into.

It's not a mosque. It has a prayer area though. But seriously, it's not even a mosque. Just because hospitals have a small chapel doesn't make it a place of worship.

EDIT: ALSO, YOU SHOULD HAVE SAID "IT'S MORE LIKELY THAN YOU THINK FOR YOUR POST. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN GOD DAMNED HILARIOUS.

Yes, I believe that that was the general idea.

I think what we really need to do is build a giant sign that has a copy of the President's birth certificate there. You know, because we're not sure that he was born in the US.

I was going to say I was opposed to the idea, because I get squirmish at the thought of any new place of worsip being constructed, but this isn't a mosque. It just has a mosque inside it. Even jails have places of worship for different faiths, it's nothing to get offended about. Get yourself some credible news sources, USA!

Honestly the whole reason I posted this was 'cause I was so upset that my crazy parents actually said the equivalent of "they could do it but should they". It just doesn't seem like a response that an intelligent person could form, but hey, there are intelligent racists, too.

I have always considered myself more of a racist intellectual.

I lost the shred of respect I had for Cracked when they chose some talentless hack to win a recent scriptwriting competition instead of a clearly superior entrant.
