Ground Zero Islamic cultural center?: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Should an Islamic cultural center be built near Ground Zero. Everyone's got an opinion, we'll have the facts and the debate tonight. The static kill operation is underway in the Gulf. We'll have the latest on its progress. The debate over illegal immigration rages on, with the newest concern over whether American-born children of illegal immigrants should be granted automatic citizenship.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    I suppose the bear was hurt less than a person in a stunt like that-idiotic way to save a bear!

    Great blog tonight...very lively conversation on the Islamic Center.

    Thanks Anderson playing devil's advocate so we can see another point of view. As usual, interesting topics tonight.

    Why is a goat inside the house?

    Have a great evening Anderson and fellow bloggers!

    The fourteenth amendment should not be narrowly viewed only in the context of the present immigration debate.

    Craig's list is indeed to some extent at the mercy of those who post on the site, but the ads shown are obviously possible prostitution ads. Does Craig's list have to report the ads to the DC police for the DC police to be able to investigate the ads?

    It's amazing to think that the internet was first created by academics to share information from one campus to another. Makes no sense that it would ultimately turn into the main conduit for hooking up right or wrong. If it makes money, Craig will do it. He's a capitalist.

    Hi Anderson,

    I can't wait to hear what Bristol Palin has to say:)

    Did I miss something? Isn't prostitution still illegal in D.C.? Women doing it on their own, without a pimp, are engaged in illegal activity. If this is the case then craigslist is providing the avenue for it.

    Hey Eva, I agree with you. Let's all unite and learn from each other. For the greater good of mankind. I am Muslim, and I live in Kansas, the Bible belt, but we have many Friends who are Christians and we all get along. Churches here have invited us to give presentations and we all learn to be tolerant and understanding.

    @Sharon Hastings, I think Craig was speechless because he knew he got caught in his lie!
