Nah. The narrowmindedness is all on the anti-Palin side. Were you not a dreadful troglodyte you might have perceived that. Leftism makes you blind.

yes.

why not? you deal in rhetoric *all* the time, now you're shy?

as i said, a substative answer to this substantive question is probably not coming soon. What did you used to call that kind of double standard? Oh yeah... moral equivalence.

If I represent Leftism then you are incorrect. But then if you represent Rightism, I have nothing to worry about.

In truth, I'm a fool for even replying. But I think that is down to me as a person, regardless of social class, political ideology, genetic makeup or upbringing.

Rising to a bait that obvious must be a sign of evolution.

Bold for emphasis added by me.

Quote:
An influential Jewish organization on Friday announced its opposition to a proposed Islamic center and mosque two blocks north of ground zero in Lower Manhattan, intensifying a fierce national debate about the limits of religious freedom and the meaning of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The decision by the group, the Anti-Defamation League, touched off angry reactions from a range of religious groups, which argued that the country would show its tolerance and values by welcoming the center near the site where radical Muslims killed about 2,750 people.
<snip>
Quote:
Oz Sultan, the programming director for the center, said the complex was based on Jewish community centers and Y.M.C.A.’s in Manhattan.
It is to have a board composed of Muslim, Christian and Jewish leaders and is intended to create a national model of moderate Islam.

“We are looking to build bridges between faiths,” Mr. Sultan said in an interview.
<snip>
Quote:
City officials, particularly Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, have forcefully defended the project on the grounds of religious freedom, saying that government has no place dictating where a house of worship is located. The local community board has given overwhelming backing to the project, and the city’s landmarks commission is expected to do the same on Tuesday.
For me, this action by the ADL is short sighted, and says "Don't discriminate against us, but do discriminate against them"
It's another example of "puking on your own reputation".

Let's pass a simple law. All mosques and synagogues must be adjacent buildings - or close their doors. No more problems. Best way to deal with the hate than causes this thread to exist.

Given the statements you said about my wife I would fully support a plane crashing into your house as well.

Not to change the subject from the same old broken records, but does anyone really know where the money to build this is coming from? I've read and heard different things.
