"Ground Zero" Mosque

I was appalled when I heard that there were plans to build a Mosque at Ground Zero, seriously, what were they thinking! Then I looked at the facts, realized that the Mosque wasn't a Mosque and the plans called for it to be built several blocks away... and that there was already a Mosque within that area... I stopped caring. It was another big flap about something that should be decided locally.

If someone was building a Mosque on the actual ground of the attack, that would be one thing. But this is completely different, and the only people who should have any say in the matter are the local New Yorkers.

Everyone else who complains about it is just uninformed. That includes Palin and the chorus of people who think that Freedom of Religion only applies to Christians. And, frankly, that includes Obama as well. Let New Yorkers decide this one, since they are the only ones who will even notice the place.
