If they are going to ban a mosque, shouldn't they also ban all other religious buildings?

9/11 was an act of terrorism by religious people acting in accordance with what they believe their religion encourages.

Maybe religious buildings should be limited to those religions, which do not have passages in their religious books allowing the killing of members of other religions.

If we are offended by religious terrorism, why arbitrarily limit our objection?

Because it is about a majority reveling in their ability to oppress.
