    Being it is 9-11, I thought I would bring up a couple of points and ask how do you feel about it.


    1) The mayor of NY has asked No prayers be given during the memorial today (even though the mayor at the time asked a priest to go into the twin towers and pray and he ended up losing his life)

    2) A christian church wants to be constructed within a block of Ground Zero. No support is being given and it will prob. not be built.

    3) The muslim mosque will be built and has recieved federal grants to aid in building it.


    It's sad that NY has a atheist mayor whom lets this happen!

    Before the end, believers, even those who don't know they're believers, will be begging to go home.

    I'm not watching the ceremony due to Bloomberg's stupidity. I think they should have organized an alternate ceremony that included religion. I guess because he's an atheist everyone else has to be also.

    The government should stay out of religion. I doubt if this was the mayor's decision alone, but it is the correct one.

    The mayor is still a lying SOB.

    I don't blame 9-11 on the muslim religion.

    I blame it on religion. Religious extremists for political gain.

    I think it is foolish and naive for the Mosque builders to think that they will not be in for a heap of hate pointed their way. Religious people tend to like be hated, I think. It is a persecution complex. They score points with God if they are hated by the infidels.

    We played a gig today. Had a moment of silence for 911, played taps. Someone sang the national anthem. Hardly anyone stood up for that.

    Kind of sad. You'd think at least on this day...

    About the same time we added "under God," to the Pledge of Allegiance.

    No, it wasn't. Despite Barton's fantasies and falsehoods to the contrary, the US was founded much more on the ideas of Locke, Rousseau, and de Vattel than religion.

    1) The mayor of NY has asked No prayers be given during the memorial today (even though the mayor at the time asked a priest to go into the twin towers and pray and he ended up losing his life). The mayor is a political animal. In this as in any other matter, he conducts himself as the animal he is. No surprise. That his request led to the death of anyone including the priest is likely to him of no consequence. This observance is no different to people like him than the next shot taken in a golf game. You play the shot for score. He's playing the shot. That is all. To expect anything more of him is irrational.

    2) A christian church wants to be constructed within a block of Ground Zero. No support is being given and it will prob. not be built. There was a Christian church (I believe Greek Orthodox) somewhere in the immediate vicinity I believe. It has been a long time since I did any reading about the matter. It does not appear that they will be able to keep their location. IIRC, their property is being used for other purposes. Again, it has been a long time since I did any reading on this matter. This is what I remember. Others so interested are welcomed to do the research. If what I remember is correct, it does raise the question as to why they are not being allow to reconstruct their Church.

    3) The muslim mosque will be built and has recieved federal grants to aid in building it. Simply read the response to item 1 above. If the mayor is an atheist, then that is no surprise in a political animal. Such people have no moral center. Their decisions are driven by whatever advances their own interest and agenda. In this case, the votes, etc. that will be gained by those making this decision drives their decision. Nothing else matters. They are one and all... political animals. One should never be surprised by how such animals act. In the zoo, at least there are bars to protect the public.
