Regarding the building of a mosque at the former site of the World Trade Center:
Obviously they have the right to put a mosque anywhere they want. We can put churches anywhere. Or temples. It's simply poor judgment and insensitive to a country that is still reeling from the effects of 9/11. Look at the controversy it's causing.
I echo other brighter voices when I say if American Muslims want to honor peace and freedom, then please build a Muslim monument to peace at that location in place of a mosque. That would help to mend wounds and generate good will. This is not the place or time for a mosque in that location.
Because...really? Freedom isn't the question, sensitivity is. Good Lord, people. Is everybody afraid of being called a name or something? Lets get over ourselves.
