All that in response to just my one sentenced comment? Wow!
I am not going to get into the details of the law and parking about NSA because it is irrelevant because if it isn't the parking then it is zoning, if it isn't zoning, then it is their book publishing, if isn't book publishing then it is the fact that they are giving a sip of wine to minors during mass, if it isn't that, then it is they are lying about people vandalizing their property, and the list goes on. . .
You just proved to everyone here that it isn't about the parking by bringing up the zoning issue.
Here is one question for you Joe, if you really, "want NSA in town, I just don't want them downtown." , where do you want NSA to be? Be specific, like an address, and the address must also be in a zoning area that allows for a four a year accredited liberal arts colleges, not just an address you think would be a good one, it must fit in the current law and zoning district. Find us just one location, Joe, just one.
"My anger at NSA is over its blatant disregard for the beliefs and feelings of many of the local citizens and its blatant disrespect of social, moral, and legal conventions."
See again, it isn't about parking. It is about the fact that you are angered at your interpretation of their beliefs.

Here is one gift that NSA downtown has given us: If the U of I wants to take over downtown Moscow, then they are in a much better position to do so now than they would have otherwise been without the CUP.
Why is it that NSA is allowed downtown but the U of I is not? No substantive reason. Thus, the U of I could now locate downtown if they wished. The only thing preventing them from doing so is their own good grace. (NSA folks will tell you that they are already downtown but that is not really true. If you doubt this, suggest a counterexample.)
Now the folks at NSA -- saints that they are -- have no intention of taking over downtown through incremental measures: one or two building here, one or two buildings there. But what is to prevent the U of I from doing so? Well, as of now, nothing but their own good grace!
Some of us think that the downtown area is not a good place for a college or university, especially given that this town has had a college or university for over 100 years and it is now big enough to take over the town, should it so desire to do so. NSA downtown makes a U of I takeover more possible now than it would otherwise be. And the only reason that the U of I will not take over the downtown is out of its own good grace. I hope that NSA has a similar attitude but I honestly worry that it does not!
My anger at NSA is over its blatant disregard for the beliefs and feelings of many of the local citizens and its blatant disrespect of social, moral, and legal conventions. It has nothing to do with their religious views. And I very much resent, Donovan, your constant insistence that things are otherwise.
