50. Tolerance has to start somewhere, and the U.S. Constitution
makes very clear that no one should be discriminated against for their religious beliefs, even if we do not agree with them.

Christian fundies, the very same people who are exhibiting this faux outrage of the mosque, hate gays and consider their 'life-style' to be a sin.

Muslims living in the U.S. are required, like every one else, to observe the laws of this country regardless or their own personal beliefs.

They also, like everyone else, are entitled to the same protections under the law as everyone else.

If tolerance is what you are concerned about, we could start right here. This country has killed over one million innocent Muslims over the ten years and continues to do so today. How tolerant is that, and no doubt supported by the same tea-baggers screaming over this mosque.

It is a sad day for the U.S. if this story is true and a few prejudiced hateful individuals have managed to violate the Constitutional rights of others simply because of their ethnicity.

Excellent example of tolerance.
