Islamaphobia and the Muslim center at Ground Zero

The proposal by the Cordoba Initiative to build an Islamic center near Ground Zero has drawn major media attention and engendered fierce debate. Right-wing political commentators, politicians, hard-line Christian ministers, bloggers and some families of 9/11 victims have charged that it is insensitive to 9/11 families, dishonors memories of the victims and will be a "monument to terrorism."

Will this be the first real public test of religious freedom in the self-styled Land of the Free?

This has nothing to do with religious freedom and everything to do with a slapping insult to all of those who died on 9/11!

It's the living people that feel insulted. And probably righteously so. But how on earth could you stop it from being built, or defend the actions that would have to be taken to stop it from happening?

Suggesting that all Muslims support the 9/11 terrorists is like saying all homosexuals are pedophiles
