I have read with interest about the plans for this mosque and the reactions to it.

I'm not going to comment further on the nonsense that this somehow helps Muslim domination. I think that is such a bunch of hooey. And the idea that somehow we need to build a church in Saudi Arabia - more hooey.

What I am going to say is there were people of ALL faiths who died in the 9/11 attacks, including Muslims. Im not talking about the Muslims who committed these horrible acts. I'm referring to those who not only worked at the WTC, but also worked to save people's lives that day. It wasn't just Christian Americans who died that day.

I am 100% certain there are churches near "Ground Zero" where Christians go to pray and reflect and remember. Should Muslims not have the same opportunity afforded to them?

The only thing bothering be is people are trying to be quiet about the funding for it, and who may be behind it. Demand transparency, and build the mosque.
