The opposition to the Cordoba House, a mosque and Muslim community center being built two blocks from the former site of the World Trade Center in New York City got me to thinking.
Most of the critics, including Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin, have suggested that it’s indecent and insensitive for Muslims to want to build a mosque near the place where other Muslims committed a horrific act of terrorism almost ten years ago. But let’s suppose for a moment we aren’t talking about Muslims, and we aren’t talking about New York.
If you think you’re opposed to the so-called Ground Zero mosque, watch the video. Try the thought experiment. See your objections for what they are, and decide for yourself whether they’re fair or not.
