and even if they did build a mosque on ground zero, people should have a right.
you can't let a few bad apples, ruin it for everyone else.
Once upon a time Jews were evil.
Once upon a time Nazis were evil.
Once upon a time Communist were evil.
Once upon a time _insert random flavor of the month here_ is evil.
blah blah blah...
if organized religion is suppose to have tolerance for their fellow man/woman---
where does it show/read that opposing someone in the name of _insert your God's name here_ is what your God wants you to do?
though I wouldnt want a war because of religion... but some people have nothing better to do to make a mountain out of a mole hill.
God damn Jerry, it's as if you're TRYING to sound stupid.
Organized religion is supposed to have tolerance for their fellow man/woman? Since when? How much do you actually know about religions? I'm guessing jack nothing, besides the fact that although religion is the overbearing base, it is not the trigger and reason of things.
The wars in the Middle East have been going on forever... why? Because of land disputes, because of rights and ownerships, and tons of other reasons. Remember the crusades? It was a war of religion, based on the fact that land was taken over, and the pope tried to free holylands from heathens. Though you wouldn't have a war over religion, YOU ARE ALSO NOT A DEVOUT RELIGIOUS PERSON... so what god damned basis do you have to make that comment? If you follow a religion as a life path, a lot of religions actually tell you to do bad and immoral things(based on standardized society). So you HAVE to do these things based on scripture written thousands of years ago.
Religious wars will always exist, and even if there were no religion... there'd be "principle" wars. Wars based on what people think is moral, and what they think is a good way of life. Questioning how people "SHOULD" live. People want to believe in something, and some people believe in things so strongly that they will do anything to prove and show that they are right.
