This is the first amendment to our Constitution. Part of our Bill of Rights.

We are not at war with Islam, I need to remind you. And this proposed building is not really a Mosque, it is a community center. And its not "on the site" of the fallen towers, its blocks away.

Again, playing on fear and ignorance, the Professional Right is trying to scare people into voting for the Teabaggers. To use the words of the Bessemer conservative, "Grow Up."
Now if I were a Muslim leader in New York City I would choose another site out of compassion for the families of the vicitims of 9-11. But I doubt that the MIC (Muslim in Charge) has much compassion, as their religion is not built upon the life and teachings of a compassionate individual like ours is*. And I'm also pretty sure they love all the fuss and divisiveness they are causing. Teabaggers and Muslims on the same page, dividing this country. Lol, who'd a thunk it?
*Disclaimer: Hard to recognize that Christianity is built on the life and teachings of Jesus when you look at how they act sometimes.
