I'll take fatalism for 500 Alex. With that outlook on life why bother with a message board?
natty nailed what I was saying and that's it.
So if he had said "hey guys can I build this mosque two blocks from Ground Zero" and they replied "fug no, take your religion of hate somewhere else" and he still built there, you'd be fine with it? You just wanted him to ask them if it's ok, knowing that their answer would have no impact on whether or not it would be built.
He's publicly shown that he's a moderate, tolerant man. The guy basically said that if loving God makes you a Christian or a Jew, then he is both. That sounds pretty tolerant. And yet you've got people protesting the mosque, holding signs that say "Sharia" as the text drips with blood. Yeah man, he was totally going to get through to them
