After keeping silent for weeks, President Obama has come out in strong support of the Muslim Community Center and Mosque near Ground Zero.

He cited freedom of religion as his reason, but opponents still maintain it's offensive to those who lost friends and family members in the attacks.

Do you agree with President Obama supporting the Mosque near Ground Zero?

I'm divided; as I'm sure many people are. As an American though, I'm troubled and offended at the possibility of a mosque being built so close to the site of such a horrific tragedy. If erected, it will be a continual reminder of those few who committed this atrocity-and bolstering to those many who support the act and subsequent outcome. I'm not surprised our president has gone along with this. He seems to stand for nothing, and when you stand for nothing...you'll fall for anything. Sad!

He is standing for and with the Constitution of the United States of America and the rule of law that governs this nation, NOT the rule of emotion. "Why did no one object to the ‘Pentagon mosque’?" that Muslim soldiers who have been in combat in the U.S. Military (fighting for our freedoms) have been holding prayer services in at the Pentagon for several years.

Is anybody really surprised by this? First, the president shouldn't have talked about this, one way or the other. Secondly, with so much opposition, why would you want to build the mosque there and anger the community and risk someone attacking or blowing up the mosque? If their intentions are pure, then just build it a couple more blocks away. Building it there against the wishes of the families of those who died is a slap in their faces and a slap in the face of America.

Our nation has built Christian Churches at the sites where Native Americans have been massacred. Why is our double standard the correct one?

Is anyone surprised at this? Why dont we let the radical muslims move into the white house. Then Obama will feel right at home.

We already have

In some instances in the past Muslims have built mosques in the areas they've conquered. That may be the real motive behind this mosque near Ground Zero.

There were many Muslim people who died in the 9/11 attacks too, not just Christians. From what I am reading even Christians should not build a church near the site. Not to mention, there have been several Christian domestic terrorist in the U.S. that have bombed abortion clinics. Does that mean that no Christian can build a church near that location either? RULE OF LAW , THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS.

IT IS OK IF THOSE CHRISTIAN DOMESTIC TERRORISTS WERE DEMOCRATS,THEY COULD DO NO WRONG.

If you idiot people would listen to what the Pesident stated you would NOT hear him say that he supports the mosque near Ground Zero, you would hear him say that he agrees with the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law. The Constitution states that as citizens, we can belong to have faith in and worship in any religion that we chose or not believe in any religion if we chose.This nation is governed on the rule of law not emotion.

I GUESS HIS OWN DEMOCRATIC SEN.LEADER WAS WRONG THEN.EVEN HE HEARD HIM SAY OBAMA SUPPORTED IT ONE DAY,THEN THE NEXT DAY OBAMA SAID SOMETHING DIFFERENT WHEN HE CAUGHT GRIEF OVER IT. SOUNDS LIKE THE NUTS WITHIN THEIR OWN PARTY CAN'T GET IT STRAIGHT.THIS MORON COULDN'T RUN A SHIFT AT MCDONALD'S AND SOMEHOW HE GETS TO TRY TO RUN THE COUNTRY???? WE ARE HEADED FOR HELL AREN'T WE.....

Anything put on ground zero should be a monument to the people who lost their lives on that day and not a slap in the face to their families and friends. Some of the people lost in this tragic event may have been of the Muslim faith but but so were the ones who planned the attack? Building a mosque on ground zero would be like building a condo for Osama BinLaden on ground zero. All in all, this is completely inappropriate!!

PLEASE DON'T GIVE THEM ANY IDEAS...THAT WILL BE NEXT,HECK OLD IDIOTIC BRAINDEAD JOE BIDEN WOULD BE IN CHARGE OF ESCORTING OSAMA BACK AND FORTH TO OBAMA'S CONDO FOR THEIR MEETINGS!!! LOL.

If we are going to nuke Iran on behalf of Israel then the public must think badly of an entire society of people. How else can we justify atomic weapons that kill so many innocent people.

This mosque is the brain child of a man who worked on W. Bushes staff. OH! whats that you say?

Muslims are not trying to build a mosque at ground zero, the bush chainey crew is. The question is why? and why are they acting like the Muslims want it there? Nuclear attack on Iran must be imminent.

Everyone here is wrong about the President, you are the ones that shameful, the only thing wrong here are people that hates the President because he's a (Black Man)! The President is doing a "Great" Job, you can sit there and post all this hate, but the bottom line is, there's no law being broken, or no law that says a few people like yourselfs has a right to hate on others.
The most of you that are commenting on this is followers, you don't have clue about what's really going on.

YOU ARE CLUELESS.YOU RE ALSO OBVIOUSLY RACIST. WHEN PEOPLE LIKE YOU QUIT PLAYING THE RACE CARD ALL THE TIME,RACISM WILL NOT BE VERY PRESENT IN OUR SOCIETY.WE GOT CHNGE ALRIGHT....JUST LIKE ODUMMER PROMISED....THAT IS ALL THAT IS LEFT IN OUR POCKETS IS CHANGE...ALSO,YOU DO NOT STUDY MUSLIM RELIGION AND PRACTICE UNDER A MUSLIM MORON WHITE PEOPLE HATER FOR TWENTY PLUS YEARS AND NOT BELIEVE IN IT LIKE OL STUPID CLAIMS TO DO.IF HE WAS NOT A MUSLIM HE WOULDN'T HAVE DONE IT THAT LONG!!! WAKE UP!!!

Sorry- check the expiration date on the back of your race card. It expired long ago ! And if Obamao's right, why is he backpeddling like crazy ?
I'm all for the guy who wants to build a Muslim gay bar next to the mosque !!
"You Mecca me hot !"

I prefer the name "Turban Cowboy". Just saying...:)

Everytime I here Obama speak ,it remines me of Charlie Browns teacher WA WA WA WA WA WA.

I have observed this President quite closely since inauguration. Slowly and surely, I would have to say this country is headed in the wrong direction. I too think he is trying to make this a third world country, or less.

Why did he even comment on this mosque?? Read between the lines.

I cannot support the idea of placing a Mosque near Ground Zero. If the Islamic community wants to truly make a memorial that honors those fallen, then they need to consider the sensitivity of this. If this project causes any conflict then it should not be placed near the site. It needs to be built somewhere else. If the project is pushed through in the face of such opposition, then I have to ask what its true purpose is. Something that is to bring unity should not cause more division. Thank you.

absoulety not. would they allow us to build a religious buidling next to one of there mosque? This is another example of our leader being reactionary and them trying to explain what he meant.

We need to replay the morning of 911 on TV and let it play all day long as if it had just happen.Let America see the jets crashing into the twin towers again and the people jumping to there deaths and then the towers falling to the ground and then see what the people think about the mosque being built.How soon some forget.As the song says,Have you forgotten how it felt that day to see our home land under fire and our people blown away.Have you forgotten.

It proves this President is not an American in any form or fashion.... he only wants to destory this wonderful country of ours this United States of America Under God we stand...It is heart breaking that we have allowed this man to be apart of US; but keep praying and trusting God will make a way, if we only believe and turn from our wicked ways.

Of course he supports the insult; after all he is a muslim!
Despite the media lying and propagandizing and packaging him as Christian; his every action has been in subservience to the muslim world.

He even said he would stand with the muslims in adversity!!!
What does it take for this country to recognize our enemy??

No!!!!!!!!!! They started all of this so I cannot agree.

NO!!!!!!! NO!!!!!!! This administration is completely and totally shameful; yes, probably
the Mosque should be built, like any other place of worship...BUT NOT at Ground Zero!! This country has been attacked twice and now we have a president who wants America to just look the other way as this so called place of worship goes up. How utterly shameful. Barak Obama is slapping every American in the face and every veteran past, present, and future in the face with his backing of the Mosque.

Do people even understand what America has done?
We put a muslim in the whitehouse to run our country and control us and now he is rubbing our nose in 911 and letting them build right beside where over three thounds of our people died from a muslim attack on our country.He is now doing a good job of destroying our government and taking everyones homes and jobs.Is it me or have we lost our minds!WE MUST IMPEACH THIS PERSON BEFORE IT IS TO LATE,WHICH IT MAY BE ALREADY.

Amen to that!

There's a surprise.
