    SM. My apologies. You are correct. I am both. Also, I've come to grips that Fred O. is a better man. His posts support his opinions rather than conflict those posted by myself. His family values for one, dwarf any that I may consider "social" commentary. I am ashamed...

    Have a nice day.

    The way this works is you can state any lie as yancey does with everyone. I never stated or said any of the items he post about me and he went so far to call me a child molester. I did report that do the Times who just deleted the comment, but he continues. No one likes him.

    Quite the false dichotomy you've set up there. You're really drawing an equivalence between people who spew racist invective, and someone who throws that nasty invective back in their face? Your moral compass is quite out whack, then.

    It is disqusting to me when people make hurtful racists remarks.
    It equally appalling to me when others justify this to make vile remarks back at them.

    Whose side do I choose?

    Either way, I'm a bigot.
    So be it.

    But, again School Mom, the fact that you said nothing regarding the bigoted, racist, and violent comments that people have made about Muslims, but then got all up in arms when I made similarly bigoted comments about the people of the South County, that... you just outted yourself. You hold the positions that the bigots hold, so you're okay with their remarks. But when that same sort of bigotry is directed out you, suddenly you have a problem.

    Yeah, they would be. And that's the entire point. People on these forums, like fredoliveri there, have spent years posting not just racist and bigoted comments, but truly vile things. fredoliveri has applauded users who have said that minors who do graffiti should be publicly tortured and executed, then have their corpses displayed in front of city hall. And no one called them on it. The staff of the MH Times defended their comments as "free speech." Then when someone shows up and turns the tables on them, and uses their exact rhetoric against them, suddenly they're running and crying to the editors about how hurt and insulted they are. And that was indeed the point. It's to out these people as the uncouth bigots that they are. If their own rhetoric sounds vile and insulting to them coming from someone else's mouth, then it's vile and insulting coming from their mouths (or, from their keyboards, you know what I mean). Unfortunately, none of them were astute enough to learn that lesson.

    The way posts are suppose to work are to use the Rules of Conduct as listed. For some reason, williamyancey keeps posting horrific comments in response to any that he finds opposing his left wing banter with the Times ignoring them for the most part. Keep posting School Mom and you can expect more of the same.

    According to Encarta's definition, a bigot is an intolerant person. Somebody with strong opinions, especially on politics, religion, and ethnicity, who refuses to accept different views.

    Wouldn't some of your comments"Inbred, gap toothed" to recall a few of your own derogatory words regarding not only San Martin, but all of South County, also be considered bigoted then?

    Am I opposed to San Martin being dumped on again without benefit of absolute due dilligence? Yes.
    Do I think people should be free to worship? Yup.
    Do I want a cemetary in San Martin where homeowners on wells may be affected? No.

    I will continue to support my neighbors who will be most impacted by this project? Youi bet.

    If that makes me a bigot, so be it.

    School Mom, it's telling that you're not chastising the bigots, who are actually harming your cause by making the issue into something it shouldn't be. At this point, I'm convinced you're one of the bigots yourself.

    For those of us who were subjected to bottled water deliveries and tainted wells courtesy of the perclorate plume provided by Standard Fusee, water quality is a legitimate concern.

    San Martin residents have been called gap toothed, inbred, ignorant, and bigots. I really don't understand how you can point the finger (with three fingers pointing back at yourself) and holler intolerance. You would be all over anyone using the same language toward the Mosque proponents.

    The mosque is getting built. It passed unanimously just some hours ago in the chambers Its only for 80 people. And you make it sound like they are overthrowing your city. Its a place where 80 people will be able to go and worship their God.

    Quiet yourself now. And cry yourself to sleep.

    Stop making a fool out of yourself :) Again you avoid answering any question and just blurt out an invalid statement. No i will not look at now. You asked who breeds the hate. The hate began at the first crusade. And what is going on NOW is the THIRD CRUSADE.

    I wonder who has been in who's region for the past DECADE. Destroying their infrastructure, raping and pillaging their resources?

    J1hadis are taking out civilians? What about those drones that are flying over pakistan killing little innocent children every single day? Or what about those WMDs that almost a million innocent iraqis have given their lives to on the pretext of going to war on that were NEVER found?

    Dont make me laugh again at your thoughtless comments. haha. too late.

    Lets just finish it at this my friend. The mosque is getting built!!!

    What you going to do now?

    It'll get built. Honestly, I'd rather see it not built. There are plenty of other places it could go without tearing up open land. But, that's just a preference of mine. These bigots, like hh, don't want to see it built because they're... well, bigots. They want a group denied their Constitutional right to free exercise of religion, and want zoning and environmental laws (which, at any other point, they'd complain about as "burdensome regulations" and "nanny-state mentality") employed against this group arbitrarily, in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. They're ignorant, treasonous knpw-nothings, who spit on the Constitution.

    hypocrisyhater: Did you know the Muslim greeting "Assalamu walaikum" means peace be with you? Americans greet each other with "Wassup nig**". Terrorists have no religion. In Aurora who killed people? A white man. And who thought it'd be okay to have slaves and beat them just because they were different? White men. And Hitler, who I hope you're not too incompetent to know about. You shouldn't be raging against Muslims. Does everyone hate white people because of the KKK? No so don't hate Muslims because a group of people who think they're Muslim but are not those who try to terorize you. And honestly as much as you are at risk of being blown up, innocent Muslims are too. And for your comment about stoning women, lets not burn them at the stake either because theyre supposedly witches. And while we're at it lets not have priests innapropriately touching young children. And dont give me any sarcasm about this being hilarious. Oh and youre not a 14 year old girl so stop using LOL. And another tip go meet real people and get real info instead of listening to Fox news. I didnt want to be rude but atleast I'm just being rude about you not a whole group of people. Last time I checked all white people are not as uneducated as you are.

    Statistically, if you live within the United States, your chances of being killed by a Christian fundamentalist/white nationalist/Patriot type are infinitely higher than being killed by a Muslim fundamentalist. But, psssh, facts are meaningless when you have a hysterical agenda to push.

    you missed my point again about being native. I dont care if you are native. the native Americans were the real native. Until you slaughtered them and left them with little casinos as reimbursement. How kind of you!

    Dont make me laugh... Its racist, prejudiced, hate filled people like you, that breed the hate. People like you that went to Jerusalem in the first crusade and sowed the seed for this hate you speak of.

    You make me laugh... Hahaha its all good. you see the support today outside for building the mosque! Overwhelming. I stand here laughing at you good sir, as this mosque WILL get approved and you will stand there sucking your thumb, still just a prejudiced man. :)

    I love winning.

    You say you did not breed the hate hmmm? do you remember something called the First crusade? Yes...Muslims living peacefully in their homeland in the middle east, and then people like you came along.... slaughtered them until the horses knees were deep in blood as descibed by the crusaders themselves.

    And you say you did not breed that hate hmmm?

    hahaha

    I suppose you also believe the white washed history of your so called hero christopher columbus? He slaughtered the indigenous people of america in such brutal ways. Yet we teach that he is a hero to us.

    Again your avoiding the points i made my making invalid statements. My point again is YOU are forgetting the moral ground that this country was built on and the constitution was written.

    You are saying that a peaceful group of people to whom YOU have a prejudice to are not allowed to practice their religion in the town they live?

    Whats your answer to that? Or would you like to deny the constitution to American citizens? Hmmm :)

    Unfortunately, we have people like yourself and Yancey and the 700 some-odd people who flooded this poll who would like to roll out the red carpet for the hate.

    You are inviting the hate in. Way to go. 20 years from now we will probably be stoning women for daring to bare an ankle in public.

    WY - You answered it? Really?

    Q - "why do progressives treat Islamic intolerance and Christian intolerance so differently?"

    A - "Ah. yeah, I've known progressives who are wildly intolerant of Christianity. But, I haven't known many, if any, who argue that Christians should be discriminated against, that they should be denied their free exercise rights, and the ones who do have no right calling themselves progressives. That's just extremism, and it's un-American."

    The question was articulated in a straightforward, easy-to-understand, manner.

    Your answer had zero to do with it.

    to hypocrisyhater. (muslimhater)

    You must be an advocate for Obama as he slowly dismantles the constitution piece by piece? This is now more than just an issue of building a mosque. It is now an issue of standing up against this small minority of haters and prejudiced idiots who have no idea what morals this country was founded on. Lets not forget one thing...the navigators on Columbus' ship were muslim arabs. They were here before you. As were the Nativa Americans whose homes you also destroyed. :)

    Get out of here with your hatred. You are the only hater here. Not the people wanting to build a peaceful mosque so they may worship God in.

Citing the Constitution to him doesn't carry any water in an argument. If you want to communicate with him, speak in platitudes and generalizations, use simple sentences, and don't use any words that are more than two syllables.

Everyone who believes in the values this country was founded on, should make sure that the hate does not win. This is much more than a local issue now.
    I am not from the area but I do know people from the area. I voted 'yes' to make sure that those people are not denied the rights that US constitution provides.

    How many Muslims have you actually interacted with before forming your opinions? You have gotten enough information from the media about the Muslims. Why not actually interact with some now and see for yourself? They have Open house in the month of Ramadan in different locations. Why not actually attend some and verify your opinions and views that are entirely shaped by the media?

    Very nice to see comments in support of the Center. It is time for each of us to rise up against the hate mongers who oppose the center. They are a small minority (as the poll results above show) and should not be allowed to misrepresent the majority of the unbiased and peace loving residents of the area.
    This issue has become more than a local Islamic Center now as the Muslim community of Northern California is following this issue. Let us show everyone that we will not deny a peaceful group their right to practice their religion freely. We still believe in the constitution and American values of liberty and freedom.

    Isn't that what they are trying to do to the chick-fil-a guy?"

    The Chik-fil-a guy isn't in the fryer because of the bible, he's catching heat because of his personal comments.

    What evidence do you have to show that THIS Muslim community in San Martin demonstrates intolerance in any way? The only intolerance evident here is against the community.

    [thumbup] The members of this Mosque I know personally and they are active, productive, very generous members of our South Valley community. They are teachers, Doctors, business owners, parents and students. They volunteer for the 4th of July activities and clean up the parks the very next day. They co-ordinate with Christian and Jewish members of our community in soup kitchens. They participate in civic activities of all sorts and have given so much back to the community for many years with all their volunteerism. If the haters would only get to know them by coming to the many open houses they have provided to the public in the past several years, they will see for themselves what a peaceful and respectful group of people they are. Instead of digging up hate filled lies from shady websites to fuel the fans of their pre-conceived prejudices they would do well to take the time to personally get to know their Muslim neighbors.

    By this logic lets just ban all the churches too! Look below at what the Bible also states about homosexuals. You are saying you dont want hate in your community yet you hate on a group who have their own opinion. so funny. So hypocritical. Glad that the poll is such a landslide in favor of the mosque :)

    FYI Im not muslim. Im an American who believes in the equal rights of all.

    Anyone who opposes this initiative opposes the First Amendment of the Constitution:

    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

    BTW latrobeligonier, I agree that HATE is not welcome.

    But why stop at Islam..Let's look at Christianity:

    "If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them." (NKJ, Leviticus 20:13)

    They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-- who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. (NIV, Romans 1:25-27)

    Shall we deny the participation of Christian organizations in the community because of the hate against LGBT present in the Bible? No

    Muslims from America didn't incite the lynchings of LGBT in Uganda...but Christians from America did. Shall we use this to judge every Christian? No.

    Religions should not be judged by extremist elements...God forbid that every Muslim in America decide to judge Christianity based on people like...say...Joseph Kony.... or his American supporter Rush Limbaugh

    Speaking of Rush... considering that you support him...(You're a member of Rush Babes for America on Facebook)...I'm pretty sure you couldn't care less about LGBT rights.

    I support a center for Islam in our community. It is unfounded to make the statement that Islam is a religion of hate or violence. This is a misconception based on the behavior of some radical militant Muslims who get a lot of press. Just like in any community, most people are caring peaceful neighbors, work colleagues and school mates going about their lives as peaceful productive citizens. Muslims, who are already living in our community, deserve the same right as any of us to gather as a community and in worship in a dedicated center.

    Management should first be asked if they support same-sex marriage. If not, (Islam calls for the EXECUTION of LGBT), then they should be denied permission to participate in the community. Muslim hate must be kept out of the community. Hate is not welcome.

    Islam is a religion of peace, and Muslims reserve the right to kill anyone who says otherwise.

    It should be approved. We want people to integrate in our society not be isolated.
