First off I'd love to see proof of a cultural centre at Pearl Harbour. Hey while we are at it let the Germans build a glorius statue of relevance at Auschwitz. This is about decency and letting the past go beyond us and move forward. Thats my argument. Its the taste and forwardness on how this is being built or what I read about a 100 million dollar mosque. Something different depicting cultures be fine.

As I said previously, that particular group has housed another cultural center within the vicinity well before the towers were even built. They are a part of the community and I'm sure they were shocked and upset with the loss of lives with sept 11. However, why should they be treated differently than any other cultural/religous groups? There are churches even closer to ground zero than this proposed center.
Again, building a 100 million dollar mosque is different then throwing up a cultural centre. Its just the way its being depicted. Besides no chance a Mosque of that relevance go up on ground zero anyways.
