These are just notes I'm taking to possibly use for a zine on the topic. I haven't kept up with it AT ALL, so am having to do tons of research. If you know of good research material, both news and opinions, please let me know. If YOU have an opinion you'd like to express, also feel free. I'm quite for its building, but that doesn't mean you have to agree. Just keep it civil, kay?

* If it's all about Ground Zero being hallowed ground, then why are there hotels as close as 1 block away from the heart of the site? Hell, try and explain The Pussycat Lounge strip club that is 2 blocks from the site, the same proposed distance as this community center.

* You can't blame an entire religious group based on a small percentage of its follower's actions. No religions are 100% innocent, because human beings aren't 100% innocent. If you're going to go that route, don't forget who started the Holocaust.

* As far as the feelings of those families hurt most profoundly by 9/11, this one's a tougher subject. But still, promoting anti-muslim sentiment when it was only one small portion of a religion isn't right. If you must, hate the ones actually guilty, not those painted guilty by association.
