A few things to consider about the Ground Zero Mosque....
1) Do the people who want to build the mosque own the land in question? Or is the landlord willing to let them open a mosque in the existing building?
2) Will the mosque put anyone in danger?
3) Do we want grandstanding politicians involved in decisions about how we can and cannot use private property?
4) If you owned a piece of land, would you want its usage to be put up for a vote?
5) It is illegal to open a synagogue in many Muslim countries. Ditto for a church. Would putting a U.S. ban on mosques help or hurt this situation?
6) When you were a kid, did you ever learn the rhyme "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me"? Does this apply to buildings?
7) Has the Islamic Witch Doctor in charge of this stunt already gotten far more free publicity than he deserves?
8) Is this a GREAT wedge issue for Republicans who want Americans to worry about tribalism instead of our $14,000,000,000,000.00 debt?
9) Which building is more likely to do you harm: The Federal Reserve Bank in Dallas, or a mosque two blocks away from Ground Zero?
10) Does Barack Obama's willingness to get sucked into this issue prove that he is a silly person?
