Mosque in Manhattan

I get why people are angry about a mosque going up near the site of the World Trade Center in Manhattan. 

The problem is that we are a culture based on equality for all.  Our country was founded on the principal of religous freedom and if we forget this we are likely to forget other fundamental principals of life.

It is easy to get angry at something that sounds wrong but we need to let all people in the US practice their religious beliefs wherever they desire.  If we chip away at this right, we all suffer.

We can't make exceptions.  We can rationalize away a right this fundamental.
