Starting a new thread on this since the old thread, which you can see right here, is quite a few pages long and this would be lost in it

It is funny how the local Manhattan community seems to have no problem with this Mosque, voting 29-1 in favor of it.

After hours of emotional public comment, a New York City community board voted overwhelmingly to support a plan to build a mosque and cultural center near Ground Zero.

"It's a seed of peace," board member Rob Townley said. "We believe that this is significant step in the Muslim community to counteract the hate and fanaticism in the minority of the community."

The vote late Tuesday by the Manhattan Community Board was 29-1 in favor of the plan, with 10 abstentions, the Associated Press reports.
