The 9/11 Mosque

I'm sure most of you have heard about the Mosque that is trying to be built just two blocks away from Sept. 11th but it has been a pretty big deal especially in the news.

I'm not exactly sure how I feel about it...
The argument is that building a Mosque (which if you don't know is a Muslim place of worship)is insensitive to the victims and families of victims who died on 9/11 given the attack was done by Muslim Terrorists.

In a way I see how this could be an issue, but they are not building the Mosque on ground zero, they're not building it next door to ground zero, they are not building it across the street from ground zero, hell they are not even building it on the same street as ground zero...

It's important to remember not to stereotype. To remember that not every Islamic Muslim is a terrorist. That they have a right to practice there religion too.. Could they maybe have picked a location farther away... yes.. but overall.. I don't see why this has become a huge government problem.
