I made a poor choice of words in my initial question. I think we would all agree that it is Constitutionally acceptable for a mosque to be built anywhere they purchase the property. Is it, however, prudent? This is an interesting take on it from across the pond.

It IS legal...it is NOT prudent.

I agree..... I am heartened to see most of us agree with following the legalities set forth by the Constitution.

What Vice said. When push comes to shove if they want it, and can fund it, then it will happen. But that is one Mosque that will be monitored, and I suspect if they even step over the line even a little bit, a constitutionally legal (albeit controversial) means will shut them down.

Let'em try build it.  The spyware in the world will be there and it won't be detectable.

If they think they can get his past the mob controlled unions in NYC, they're just plain stupid.  Let them find anyone in a union that will work on the building.  The only way it happens is if the union pulls a labor slowdown and drives the building into immense cost overruns.  If they plan on $100M, it'll cost them $150 M at best.

I received this as an e-mail forward and thought this was a good place to re-post it.

TOLERANCE:

If the idea of a mosque near Ground Zero is to promote tolerance........

 
  Then I suggest that a gay nightclub be opened next door to the mosque. Two names
proposed for the club are; "The Turban Cowboy" & "You Mecca Me Hot".  A life size
statue of Mohammed will be prominently displayed in front of the bar.  On the
other side should be a butcher shop specializing in pork.  Across the street, a
store that sells and displays ladies lingerie and bikinis on live models.
    After all, this is still America - isn't it ?

Imagine the good that could be done, if people were less worried about their differences, and more worried about doing good for everyone.
