WTC mosque

By Creature

Here, here [via TPM]:

Furthermore, why is land use in New York City the business of anyone else but the citizens of New York? If so, I would really like to know Sarah Palin's opinion of the Atlantic Yards (or Hudson Yards or the expansion of Columbia University) project, an issue that is 1,000,000x more controversial than this project. That's all this is: a land use issue. [...]

This is a local issue, plain and simple. The people of New York, the ones actually attacked on 9/11 and who had to live through the aftermath, are the only ones who are effected by this and don't seem to have a problem with it, so no one else should. It is no one else's business. Sarah Palin and the "heartland" do not have permanent veto power over what gets built in Lower Manhattan. If they want a say over what happens there, my advice would be to move to New York. They might even learn something about the values of living in a multi-ethnic, multicultural community.

Butt out, Sarah, and the rest of you backward-ass wing nuts.

  • May I suggest that instead of a one religion Muslim Mosque being erected at our hallowed Ground Zero site, Mayor Bloomberg and the City of New York, in association with the federal government and possibly the Port Authority, use eminent domain to build a multicultural center, representing ALL religions, to commemorate the worst terrorist attack on New York City in history.

    Since ALL religions will be invited to participate, could this not be an appropriate solution for utilization of the site?
