Muslims unite behind NYC mosque | The Columbus Dispatch

Full story: Columbus Dispatch

Some Muslims who initially were indifferent about a proposed Islamic center near the World Trade Center site now are rallying around the plan, partly in response to a sense that their faith is under assault.

That's odd coming from countries that are constitutional monarchies where the head of state is the Queen of England, where the Queen's appointed governor basically has veto power over the legislature, and where the Queen of England is also the titular head of the Church of England. If that's not a Christian country, I don't know what is.
I agree. But get to know at least a few Canucks. Religion and state are very much two separate ideas to them. And look at Great Britain, where Sharia law is officially recognized. Tells me that their "religious" government is that in name only.(Plus a few other things, but another complaint/story, another day. And since I'm not a Brit, it would be all theory.) Most under the British crown view the monarchy only as a title and historic role.

There has to be a stopping point. This is America. Americans must stand up and do it now. We are losing. As Americans we must fight forour rights. The muslims come here and find things offensive. They file lawsuits. If we as Americans dont stand up and demand our country back. We will be forced to a bow to a muslim or be killed.
I will not bow down
I am an American
i will die for my American right.
Ok...this is Rod Serling. And this it the twilight zone.

I'd be offended too if I owned land and someone told me what I could and could not do with it--so far it looks like their land is zoned for this and they are not breaking any laws. Whether I like what they do with their land is not for me to determine. Property rights anyone?

People file lawsuits every day. Big deal. Lot of them are frivolous. But many are valid. This is not a lawsuit.

Get the issue? The Muslims building this mosque are Americans as well as being Muslim. What rights of yours are being violated here?

Go ahead and shoot the messenger because you don't like the message for all I care. I don't like the idea of a mosque there, but they still own the land and have the right to develop it as they so deem within the bounds of local NY laws.

Muslims use these mosque to plot terror and speak against our nation. How many more people have to die, limbs blown off by IEDs for Americans to wake up to the Muslim next door.

Polls have shown that while the majority of Muslims aren't open terrorists a majority of Muslims want to live under Sharia law and believe that if force is required to do so they are willing to have infidels (you and me) killed.
