    While watching the Imam interview, the obvious solution to the issue, if religious understanding and tolerance is the long term goal and is a true underspinning, would be for the developers to embrace a coalition of equal partners in the venture from the Christian world and the Jewish world to participate in building the multi-cultural religious center. Seems obvious to this country boy.

      Charlie, you obviously need to come back to reality and realize that the mosque is gonna get built and the muslims aren't even responsible for 9-11. I think that too many people take religion seriously; that's the real problem here.

    If everyone would just remember that in the bible these events were written and the outcome will come to pass. Every true Christian knows right from wrong and what truly the good lord wants. We are not here in this world to judge but to live this journey with love, faith, and joy.

      what events were written? what outcome will come to pass? the worlds not gonna end man, there is no such thing as the antichrist, and "god" is not coming back. There's good and bad people in this world, that's about it. Now I think that both sides are very wrong; without religion there would not be such an outcry for or against Terry Jones.
