I don't find this picture is funny either.
And you have. Well done. I just find it sad that some people never agree on anything here. Seems like the issue barely matters.For your information, the only posts that I report are the spams.
Just because I don't find a post humorous means that I would try to censure it. It just means that I have an equal right to state my opinion of it.
I imagine you were in the area during this attack. You saw the aftermath. You probably knew some of the casualties. It was a life changing event. Funny how something that brought us all together now drives people apart. *shrugs*
Maybe it's a perfect description for someone but it's not mine.
What circling? Each person is entitled to his or her opinion. Or do you expect us all to either agree or shut up?And you have. Well done. I just find it sad that some people never agree on anything here. Seems like the issue barely matters.
Waiting for the other Conservatives to circle the wagons...
I don't think the appearance is the problem; it's the location.right. the picture is not "mocking death." It's the visual description of people's perception of Ground Zero mosque. I bet they don't even know what it looks like... hence - the actual picture of it in my post.
and associating Islam & Muslim people to Osama bin Laden.I don't think the appearance is the problem; it's the location.
it's obviously not going to look like the picture I posted but most people do not know that nor care to learn about it.Do you have an actual artist's rendition of the center? I don't think it's going to look like the current Burlington building but it's not going to look like the one you posted either.
BTW, a mosque or Islamic center would not include a statue of a human being; that would be idolatry to them.
Tribeca Citizen | Progress Report: Opening LaterishPARK51
Location: 49–51 Park Place (between W. Broadway and Church)
What was there before: Burlington Coat Factory.
What we know about it: The proposal for a mosque and Islamic cultural center has been met with opposition from people who would prefer it not be two blocks from the northern edge of the Wold Trade Center site. As it stands now, the plan calls for a new building—as big as 15 stories tall—with a 500-seat auditorium, fitness facilities (including a pool), a restaurant and culinary school, a memorial to the victims of the 9/11 attacks, and more.
Opening date: TBD
Joy Levitt, executive director of the Jewish Community Center on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, remembers her first conversation with Daisy Khan around 2005, years before Ms. Khan’s idea for a Muslim community center in Lower Manhattan morphed into a controversy about Sept. 11, Islam and freedom of religion.
“Strollers,” said Ms. Levitt, whom Ms. Khan had approached for advice on how to build an institution like the Jewish center — with a swimming pool, art classes and joint projects with other religious groups. Ms. Levitt, a rabbi, urged Ms. Khan to focus on practical matters like a decent wedding hall and stroller parking.
“You can use all these big words like diversity and pluralism,” Ms. Levitt recalled telling Ms. Khan, noting that with the population of toddlers booming in Manhattan, “I’m down in the lobby dealing with the 500 strollers.”
How Ms. Khan’s early brainstorming led to today’s combustible debate, one often characterized by powerful emotions and mistaken information, is a combination of arguable naïveté, public-relations missteps and a national political climate in which perhaps no preparation could have headed off controversy.
Right, but the same person found humor in someone wearing a KKK costume. I found that unfunny. I feel no remorse in laughing at this picture. It shows absolute absurdity.
Make sure to report this offensive image at once. You will sleep better.
I expect you to oppose me on every issue. I doubt we have ever agreed on anything. I find that troubling. Oh well.What circling? Each person is entitled to his or her opinion. Or do you expect us all to either agree or shut up?
It would be nice if you agreed with me about something but it doesn't trouble me if you don't. Variety is the spice of life.I expect you to oppose me on every issue. I doubt we have ever agreed on anything. I find that troubling. Oh well.
I asked Jiro if he had a picture of the proposed building because I'm curious to see what it looks like. Jiro seems to be able to find images for every topic, so I figured he could get one. It wouldn't change my mind about the location; I just wanted to see what one could get for $100 million in NYC.I also note that you asked Jiro for the actual plans for building this. If they agreed not to build it within 20 miles of Ground Zero, would this be far enough? Would you prefer they build all Islamic mosques in the deserts of Saudi Arabia?
Alright. We can agree to disagree on the topics, but respect as individuals. I expect nothing more.It would be nice if you agreed with me about something but it doesn't trouble me if you don't. Variety is the spice of life.
I don't oppose you as an individual; I disagree with your posts.

I never said anything about limiting the construction of mosques to Saudi Arabia. We have mosques in South Carolina, and it doesn't bother me. I only request that they rethink putting ONE particular center further away from Ground Zero.
Mocking death isn't funny to all of us.
