Then again dust and debris covered most of the city and surronding areas, so should they be banned in say Brooklyn where plenty of dust landed?
They are allowed to build it, but IMHO they should not out of respect and to avoid possiable trouble. Still where exactly does the line end. Would it still be an issue if it was one more block away? How about 6 more blocks away? How about in the city at all?

Just want to make exceptions because of an affiliation to a religion do you? Well how about tomorrow we declare that Catholics can't build a church within 10 blocks from a school because.......well because we all know the problems with Catholic priests and young boys or maybe let's say we limit what Protestants can build down south because again we all know that most members of the KKK were Protestants........... I hope you get the point here, it's the principal to be free from discrimination that the Constitution clearly states that is important.
Look, there are some things that come with Free speech that I find truly repugnant, such as burning the flag, or protesting at soldiers funerals, but I believe sincerely that going down a slippery slope and restricting Free speech in more and more instances that we simply disagree with is far worse than allowing it to happen and not feeling to good about it. The same holds true for Religious discrimination

the Dixie flag is all but banned.
i love Dixie. my ancestors fought for the south, and like most they didnt own or care about owning slaves. it wasnt about slavery for them. it was about states rights and the imbalance of federal funding of infrastructure vs taxes. there were other issues, you know.
but the KKK hijacked the flag and warped its symbolism. it has become a symbol of hate. although i have every right to proudly wear the flag and display it, i choose not to because i understand the hurt it causes.
i can be sensitive to others feelings and adjust, why cant they? i dont have to flaunt the bars and stars, why must they flaunt islam?
every day we make decisons in out personal lives not based on what we CAN do, but what we SHOULD do.
why cant they?
we are continually told we must tolerate and be sensitive to "their" feelings and religion.
why cant they reciprocate?
do they not see that all they are doing is cementing and fertilizing the hatred many in america have for islam? it is their intolerance that is the problem now.
the seeds you sow so shall ye reap
Did that rainbow you saw the other day give you a double shot of wisdom?
BTW, welcome back...
