There are a ton of mosques in New York City, so it would leave me to beleive that the discussion about a Mosque on Ground Zero has nothing to do with religious issues.

That fringe group's whole argument about the cross is, supossedly, visually offensive to any non-religious folks. Good luck trying to use that as a constitucional argument.

Add also to the fact that a cross is not necessarily a religious symbol.

Update: Finally, to assume that any non-religious folk is offended just by the display of a symbol is a bit of a strech.

I don't think anyone here is actually picking on a any religion, I think the only one that was talking crap was Kogen and that was about Muslims.

Isn't it interesting that people get so hot and bothered over something that likely doesn't exist? I would say I am an atheist, or a Confucian, but Confucianism is a philosophy to meet certain standards and not really a religion as there are no deities you are asked to believe in. Anyways I couldn't give two shits if somebody is religious, I let little kids believe in Santa Clause so why not adults? People make these arguments about religion causing war or violence, those arguments may carry some weight, but in the modern era I think less so than in the past.

By chance, which name is Kogen going under now? I have a clue who, but want to make sure.

@George

No, I think ROJM was just saying that there are a few fringe non-religious groups that seem to throw a hissy fit.  Fortunately, it never goes beyond that.

Something like that happened about a year ago when Pope Benedict paid a visit to England.

The conversation here on our message board has been level-headed, for the most part and there's a lot more to talk about then something like politics.

^The guys a genius, he can come across as a bit of a douche at times I find, but theres no arguing that he knows his shit and he know how to prove it.

His argument can pretty much go for any religion.



This was good too:

Dr. Richard Dawkins might be convincing on just a scientific POV, but on everything else, forget it.
