A unanimous vote, too, we might add. Where next will Sarah Palin choose to demonstrate her irrelevance? (snicker chortle guffaw)

Im still waiting for the legal evidence that allows blocking said construction. So far all I've been hearing from the statists are nothing but emotion. They could easily prevent the construction if they can prove owner is an illegal alien and/or the land was obtained illegally but of course thats too hard.

Can't say I am really surprised by the vote. It seems like emotional people are reacting to something that they disagree with, but was legally done right.

I am sure a lot of people hate it. I hate the fact my neighbors have loud sex at 3 in the morning, but I cannot legally force them do to anything. It is the same in this case, everything was done by the book.

I don't see what the big deal is about it. Just another ****ing church. Big whoop.

I'm betting people didn't protest any churches being built near the OK city bombing area even though McVeigh was christian

Still don't see a reason to be upset, people should be able to distinguish that the people building this Mosque are peaceful Muslims while the ones who destroyed the twin towers were extremists.

Ill agree that it IS a dick move and that they have the right to be pissed but they have no right to stomp on the rights of these people without credible evidence.

McVeigh didn't have thousands of his supporters jump out unto the streets screaming and chanting 'death to America' either. He also didn't carry his act in the name of Christianity. He was a pro-gun anti-government nut who was pissed about what happened to other pro-gun anti-government nuts in Waco Texas. It's harder to stop somebody from building a gun shop in Oklahoma than it is to stop them from building a church. I'm not opposed to the building of this mosque. But if you're going to make comparisons, at least make them honest ones.

do you really think the people building this mosque and those who will attend it really ran about the streets chanting death to America? You know Muslims also died in 9/11, and there are Muslims fighting overseas against Iraq and Afghanistan. Why do you all continue to lump together the extremeists with the American Muslims. I don't consider every Christian to be like those of the Westboro Baptist church and I am sure you all don't either so why do this to Islam?

Its fun pissing on the victim's families of 9.11 isn't it Catz?

There are plenty of questions to ask. Like where this money is coming from. This imam has ties to terrorists groups like Hamas. If he is getting his money from there this should never happen.

Nice assertion.
I assume you can provide evidence to prove it along with the funds of the building?

I agree with this, and of course, a few here (The Glenn Beck dittoheads) will call me a fake Conservative for it. But do you want to know who the real fake Conservatives are? They are the ones who scream "No government meddling in private affairs, unless it is certain private affairs that I want them to meddle in". Smells exactly like the Glenn Beck dittoheads to me. :mrgreen:

What evidence do you want? He is refusing to say where the money is coming from and its already proven his organization does not have the funds to do so on their own.

Don't make such ridiculous assertions without having anything to back it up next time.
Makes you look stupid.

The only thing stupid here is your willful ignorance of discovering the truth behind where this money is coming from.

Are you so ignorant of current events you have no knowledge of this imam's ties to terrorism and his comments about 9.11? Please tell me you are more learned than that.
