Today, we debated why this mosque should be allowed to be built. While many people are against it, others, including important figures such as President Barack Obama and Michael Bloomberg, support the construction of the mosque, going back to how the First Amendment states that anyone can practice their religion safely and freely. Many others agree that it can take an area that is a sign of complete destruction into a new and improved area of peace and harmony.
The former may think that, but the current one doesn't. Mayor Michael Bloomberg stated:
"Democracy is stronger than this. You know the ability to practice your religion was one of the real reasons America was founded."
Yes, but remember, there are many other people around the world talking and debating about the topic, not only the people of New York and/or of America. Other people, even the people of DAA, are interested about this topic and want to state their own opinions.
What exactly makes it inappropriate? Not only has the Mayor of New York himself state that he supports the construction, president of the United States, Obama himself, also had come out during a conference talking about the mosque, saying that he fully supports the construction as well. While it was sad for the deaths of the thousands of people, not building the mosque won't bring them back to life, will it?
While Barack Obama never exactly stated that it was appropriate, he did simply state it into different words. Saying that it is completely fine to build the mosque there is basically saying that it is appropriate for it to be built there.
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
