    Default Explain this Please???

    "Democratic New York Gov. David Paterson has suggested that state land farther from ground zero be used for the center. Khan, executive director of the American Society for Muslim Advancement, expressed some openness to that idea on ABC's "This Week with Christiane Amanpour," but said she would have to meet with the center's other "stakeholders" first."

    I'm a long ways from New York City. What they do is their business unless it comes into conflict with the Constitution or other federal laws. State lands are used for development all the time for many purposes.
    On a personal level, I don't like Governments getting involved with religious activities.
    I thought it was over the line when the Bush administration started cultivating support from the right wing Christian community, and then rewarding them with Huge Government grants. Way over the top. I have also read that Obama has expanded this practice. I think it is wrong for the federal government to do this.

    As noted in the NY Post story on this:

    "If the sponsors were looking for property anywhere at a distance that would be such that it would accommodate a better feeling among the people who are frustrated, I would look into trying to provide them with the state property they would need," Paterson told reporters.
    New York Gov. David Paterson

    Paterson spokesman Morgan Hook later acknowledged the state must competitively sell state land by bidding, and couldn't simply "provide" it to a religious group.

    He added that the state was not actively looking for a parcel to house the mosque and would not do so unless both sides in the controversy agreed."

    Uncalled for...

    I can't believe you guys are okay with this...

    Stan, can you imagine the uproar if someone would have attempted to erect a cross on state land to honor dead americans?

    JDogger said;


    To the point at hand. To erect a 12 foot high cross on a public right-of -way, by the STATE POLICE on a federal or state roadway, does not keep in the spirit of the original intent. Now...if a private land-owner, behind his fence line, wishes to give consent, so be it. Then let them build it.

    Mosque-like regards, Eh? JD
    Eh??

    No it's not, I actually think DD gave a great answer.

    It's spin when you say one thing and do another.



    Maybe not!!

    Once the land is transferred, it isn't "State land" anymore Stan.

    Tell me even you can see the difference.
