I can’t speak for all atheists in America, but I honestly don’t get what all the fuss is about with the NYC mosque. You want to talk about offensive? Republicans ought to take a flying leap off a diving board into a pool of razorblades and salt for voting down health benefits for those hurt rescuing people from the wreckage of 9/11. I don't know how these wretched parasites sleep at night (I imagine on enormous piles of donar money).
Just my opinion, I could be wrong.
