It just doesn't sit well.
Also, the White House (meaning your tax dollars) is financing the Imam's global trek to raise money for this mosque...so now you and I are FORCED to support this incredulous act.
Jesus overturned the tables in the temple twice (Mt. 21:12-13; Mk. 11:15-19). He wasn't passive about things not being right in His Father's house. That was His business. He didn't get involved in politics or government because it wasn't time for that yet (Lk. 17:20-37). And the Roman government was never a place of freedom for Him or many. America, on the other hand, is a place of freedom for us where "We the people" are the government and we must maintain the freedom we have. "It is for freedom Christ made us free." (Gal. 5:1) And our Founders used God's law & natural law to establish this great nation. They essentially extended God's freedom to this new nation.
He will be coming (very soon I hope) to set things right and ultimately sit on the throne where He will very much be involved in government (Is. 62:25; Rev. 20). And I guarantee you He is not going to be too keen on a mosque being ANYWHERE on the earth (Gen. 16, esp. v. 12; Gen. 21:8-21; Jn. 8:24; Jn. 14:6; Acts 4:12; 2 Ptr. 3:9; 1 Tim. 2:5).
I absolutely think that all religions should have equal freedoms in America. That is the first priority of the Constitution (as long as no harm comes to anyone...and this is a question we should ask. This mosque at the pursued location harms people affected by 9-11. Most Americans own the attacks as a personal offense.). Why must the mosque be built so close to the site? We must realize that this is not some peaceful sect. This Imam has stated that we brought the attacks upon ourselves so it isn't reasonable to think he really has everyone's best interests at heart.
Yes, they legally have the right, but a right doesn't mean it's right.
Just build the darn thing somewhere else! ...and it won't be such a volatile issue.
