I see. So by that same logic Chick fil A is ok to build in the suburbs of these major cities...just not where the gays are (city centers). The fact is either you are for liberty and freedom or not. It does not just apply to people who think like you.

Well the mayors can tell them where gay ground zero is and then they can build further away in the non gay areas.

If you're going to start behaving like that then be treated like that.

I think Muslims should locate all of their future mosques next to Chick-Fil-A restaurants.

That was about there being one built on the ground zero spot where Muslims killed thousands of people, right?

PS: Muslims believe if they follow their religion in killing the gays, so do these Democrat Mayors call for the suspension of all Muslim Businesses and their licenses?

I mean since you want to talk hypocrisy?

Did the Dem Mayors ban President Obama from Chicago and other places when he was against gay marriage before he needed donations from gays three months ago?
Again, want to talk hypocrisy?

Yes, you are right. It is extremely inconsiderate to build it so close to Ground Zero when there weere other places where it could have been built. I opposed the mosque simply because it's yet another piece of valuable property that will not pay property taxes, firemen, policemen, street/sewer maintenance, thus no contribution to the City's expenses and a further drain on the taxpayers.

That's a good idea!!! Then again, CFA might claim that they are exempt from paying property taxes if the mosque gets too close to them.
CFA should give them free breakfast bacon biscuits to entice them.

BS, what rights are they being denied that a straight person is granted? None!

FYI, I'm straight, and the current laws deny me marriage to same sex as well.

A local station (ABC, channel 7) estimated there would be 50-75 protesters. Wow, what a huge turnout!

You can't marry the dead, an animal, your house or your car either?
