…could a charlatan like Glenn Beck (with Sarah Palin as backup) claim that holding his Washington rally on the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s is “divine providence” AND simultaneously claim that an Islamic center shouldn’t be built two blocks from Ground Zero because it offends some people.
 
Am I the only person who thinks it’s fine for Beck & Co. to hold their rally when and where they did AND for the Islamic center to be built on that site?

I would hope that no one would question the RIGHT of any group of Americans to peaceably assemble on the National Mall, just as no one I know (or have heard of) questions the RIGHT of any group of Americans to build a mosque two blocks from ground zero. This being America, and Americans being human, I'm sure there will be many who question the WISDOM of doing either of those things. And sure enough, many have.

I don't watch or listen to Glenn Beck, or know much about his message, but as far as I know he's not advocated anything smacking of racism, or anything that is opposed to Dr. King's message of racial equality. I don't see why a rally in favor of the civil rights that are most under attack today (the right to be left alone) should not be held at the site of a famous rally in favor of the civil rights that were most under attack in the 1960s.

I got a kick out of your statement: "that an Islamic center shouldn't be built two blocks from Ground Zero because it offends [SOME] people". What a total and complete joke. Gary, do you not read the news? Do you just ignore the truth in this Ground Zero mosque thingy with regard to how the vast majority of Americans feel on it????? In case you missed it...68% of Americans are against the mosque being built there. Nope...it's not because they don't have the right to build it there. Get a clue, man. It's because they don't think it's "right" to build it there. You are a very intelligent individual. I can't believe you are presenting this here. I'd bet the farm you know better but are just sooooo attached to the left you can't imagine EVER agreeing with the "other side" on ANYTHING...regardless what the majority in our country thinks. It's very sad, Gary. You need to take a step back and look at who you really are, my friend.

I fully support Gary's RIGHT to continue to beat this dead horse of an issue, though I don't think it is at all wise for him (and the rest of the radical left) to do so.

Oh, hey, Carbine. Gary started a whole new front page piece on it. HAHAHAHA...just can't get enough, I guess. This is a loser for the demos. Oh...not to say that the mosque won't be built there...I'm thinkin' that come hell and high water, that's gonna happen. But, my belief now is that although Americans' focus is usually short lived and this issue after the mosque is built and operational will fade away.....that very mosque will stand as a constant reminder to what happened to our country on 9/11 and who perpetrated it.

Again...my belief is that this is not only a short-term loser for liberal/democrats today but is going to be a loser for muslims for many, many years to come. Ever had a small pebble in your shoe you couldn't get out? That's what this mosque is going to be for all of those 70% in America that were against it.
