Why? Don't they have the right to worship? You don't have to like their religion.

I wouldn't use a mosque, I didn't say that they shouldm't be allowed to build a centre of worship, only that I can think of more productive forms of land use.

I don't think I would like Parliament "sitting" next door to me, so you're more than welcome to have the strip club.

Yeah and thats completely your business just as people who worship a God who chose to give final revelation to an illitarate merchant in the 7th century have the right to buy land to build a place of worship; doesn't make them any less meaningless or any more useful to me.

Muslims believe that illiterate merchant was a prophet.

Christians believe a poor carpenter was the savior of the world.

Buddhists believe an oddball ascetic discovered the path to eternal happiness.

What's the point?

And they are being willfully uncritical, theres no law against people holding or talking about stupid beliefs.
