Not really outrageous. Ted Olson is a left wing liberal.

Ted needs to be checked out as he has become unbalanced. This is offensive, but even more offensive is his new role as spokesman for gay marriage. His participation in CAs proposition 8 is incredibly disappointing. Apparently this conservative no longer believes the will of the people, and believes in an all powerful ruling class.

For those who may have forgotten, or didn’t know..his wife was a FReeper...screen name “bko”..I enjoyed mnay a Freepmail correspondence with her. Her last book on Hillary had come out that summer, and we were tryign to arrange an “author’s night” for her at the Chappaqua Public Library”..it would have been a hoot!..A great lady..beautiful, intelligent, and gracious..she is sorely missed...

Opinions are like ***holes, everybody has one. Remember, he was lead counsel on the anti-Proposition 8 case in California. He’s nowhere near as conservative as his late wife. He’s a Mitt Romney/Meghan McCain/Bushie RINO.

I always thought he was conservative. This is the second instance in a couple of weeks in which he has taken what I would consider the opposite side. The first was his support of the gay marriage decision overturn in California.

Is he becoming the new Arianna Huffington?

Evidently, his wife was a lot more conservative than he is, or her death put him over the edge or something.

A mosque at Ground Zero = religious tolerance.

Does Ted appreciate the irony in this?

Olsen’s a spokesman for gay marriage?

Maybe he went gay after moslems killed his wife, yet doesn’t mind being killed by moslems himself. Thus he supports the mosque aka toilet.

I can’t figure it out.

If one more person refers to opponents of this triumphal mosque as "intolerant" of religion, I think I might explode.

They know d@mn well that we're not intolerant of the peaceful practice of anyone's religion.

We're intolerant of triumphal mosques built on sacred sites.

We're intolerant of our tax money going to fly the imam around the world to try to secure funding for it.

We're intolerant of the slap in the face and the salt in the wound caused by just the very idea of building a triumphal mosque anywhere near the site where almost 3,000 innocent workers were incinerated for the sin of sitting at their desks working on a Tuesday morning.

We're intolerant of our elected officials siding with our enemies against us on this issue.

We're intolerant of a lot of things, but freedom of religion has never been one of them.

Another believer in islam as a benign and gentle religion instead of the cultist, convert or die, that it truly is. The obvious escapes him in his little mind.

If roles were reversed ....reminds me of cindy sheehan and what she did to her sons memory.

Probably the same he feels about the one being constructed in a field in PA, where the forth plane went down. Probably wouldn’t bother him a bit. Seems he’s on a quest to show how super tolerant and superior he is compared to the unwashed masses. The ruling class must have questioned his credentials.

Since his wife was killed in the plane that went into the Pentagon, I don’t see how his opinion really matters all that much in relation to the mosque at Ground Zero.

The fact that he has remarried may have something to do with his Leftward flip. New wives are generally more left-wing, as in Barry Goldwater.

Boy this guy sure got over his wife’s death rather quickly didn’t he..now he is posturing for the same muslims that slaughtered his wife. WOW Teddy, ya think you could have shown your wife a wee bit of more respect then that. Obviously Ted doesn’t remember seeing muslims from all over the arab world celebrating in the streets when the towers fell and passing out candy to children in the gaza strip

But then I suspect you agree with the 9th. circuit decision that claiming military medals you didn’t earn (stolen valor) is logical, reasonable and lawful.

“Not at all. It just shows that Olson is motivated by reason, logic, and the rule of law rather than blind emotion and hysteria.”

I’m not sure about that totally, but I am leaning that way. This mosque could be everything folks say, a victory monument to a death cult locally led by a terrorist sympathizer if not one himself. But if that is the only reason to block it, it is going to get built. It is America after all.

I am actually more upset about how the greek orthodox were treated. Ground zero is being hailed as some sacred piece of ground, but lets face it, this was no Pearl Harbor. We were caught with our pants down when we knew better, and if ground zero is a monument to anything, it is to that of the broken liberal NY government for letting it sit this long. Fill in the damn hole, put up a plaque to remember what happened there and build baby build!

I am not going to say I am in favor of the mosque being built at ground-zero - I do believe they do their cause no good by building it there.

However, I do believe in property rights and religious freedom and there is no conservative consistent view or opinion that can say they have no right to build it where they want to build if they own the property.
