Bottom Line:
The Constitution is VERY clear about Freedom of Religion AND Separation of Church and State.

It's a never ending fight to get this through the thick empty skulls of ultra-right wing Ditto-heads.

Liberals always lie about their military record so anyone who is posting and boasting about their military record online cannot be trusted.

Supporting the building of a Mosque 2 blocks from Ground zero marks a twofer for American liberals. It's the first time liberals have stood up for religion and the first time libs have wanted to protect property rights. All at once? Very, very rare indeed. The losses in November just keep growing. Thanks libs keep the giving going and don't let your recyclable grocery bags get in your way.

Thanks Again, Ms Telnaes for such an accurate show!

jornolibist: Please READ (and try to understand) OUR CONSTITUTION.

Also, LOTS of us Liberals are US Military Veterans! So much for Gingrich's Dad - What about Gingrich himself? Has he done ANYTHING honorable?

Newt Gingrich is a lifelong Republican and a lifelong low-life. Equating Islam with Naziism is so incredibly repulsive, and he is smart enough to know better. But he's pandering to the the most prejudiced, intolerant, ignorant wing of the Republican Party - you know, the Sarah Palin crowd. He's trying to out-Sarah Sarah. And with this he may have succeeded.

Hey Newt Gingrich your analogy that building an Islamic Center near the 911 site in NY is like “putting a Nazi sign near the Holocaust Museum.” Wrong! Unless, being Muslim is the same as being a Nazis. Nazis declared WAR, Muslims did not; it was a bunch of TERRORIST that declared war on us. Timothy McVeigh was Christian, thus according to Newt’s logic, we should not let any Christians build a church in Oklahoma City!! Oh, and we will need to get rid of that YMCA that's down the street from the Oklahoma City Memorial. Yes, I am being sarcastic - However, Newt is very wrong! Read your Constitution, it says something about freedom of religion…

Gingrich was right on the money. This mosque if built overshadowing the 911 grave yard will cause cheering all over the world from Muslim extremists. The Cordoba Mosque in Spain for which this one will be named was built right over a Christian Church as a sign of victory. This placement is morally wrong. These people who wanted it placed there are insensitive and deliberately aggressive and know perfectly well the trouble it would cause.

I read jornolibist post several times thinking, surely you meant to make sense??
Sadly, you do not. Neither does Newt (toad).

"Nazis ... Holocaust Museum"
"Japanese ... Pearl Harbor"
"Mosque ... WTC"

The Holocaust was a result of Nazi policy.

Pearl Harbor was a result of Japanese policy.

WTC was the result of a minority sect of the world's 2nd largest religion.

Newt Gingrich is either unable or unwilling to separate these things in his mind. He seems pretty bright, so I can't forgive him for simple ignorance. It must be caused by his self-serving political agenda.


P.S. jornolibist: you're an idiot, and I mean that in the sincerest, politest, way.

With all the negative attention paid to this issue now I feel it would not even be safe to have a mosque there. It would have to be guarded like we do embassies in hostil countries. All the hostilities between opposing factions concerning many issues in America is tearing US apart. Our enemies abroad must be loving all of this right now. It is a bitter pill that was created and we our now being forced to swallow. This is America and people do not like to be told what to do!

Every election has diverting issues and comments but this one may be one for the books. I pray the American public is wise enough to see through the smoke screens being set and vote with their minds and not their emotions.

Gingrich's comment was ignorant and stupid. Kinda like the other post on here.

Nationalist Socialist Democrat Party (NAZI) = The Democrat Party of Today--- Just think of the 4 words that make up the acronym NAZI? Doesn't that send chills up your back?

Newt is a lifelong Republican. Newt's Dad was a 3 war Veteran of WWII, Korea and Vietnam.

The Republican Party was founded with the sole purpose of ending slavery. Republicans won and democrats are still trying to get even.
