I've been following this story and am just putting my two cents in. The ignorance and bigotry displayed by so many is frightening. The belief that freedom of religion is only freedom of certain religions is mindboggling. Do those who believe that have some secret decoder rings that help them read hidden messages in The Bill of Rights that the rest of us can't see?
Freedom of religion includes the freedom to be Muslim, and to be allowed to build mosques, etc. Islam didn't fly planes into the twin towers, criminal fanatics did.
The KKK and other white supremacist groups claim to be Christian, but I haven't noticed any fuss about churches being built too close to the sites of their atrocities.
I'm just saying. . . .
