The Mosque


At the center of a swirl of controversy it dominates the air waves and much of the public’s attention.

The national Review is leading the charge against the effort to build this. I don’t agree.

This is an exercise of at least two freedom we hold dear, the freedom of religion and private property.

At least the National Review is not calling for government action to enforce their likes and dislikes. They seem to be focusing on boycott and the like to enforce their likes. So maybe they respect private property.

But the manipulation of people as mob to suppress free practice of religion still seems unconscionable. The claim that the builders of the mosque is a supporter of Hamas gives me some pause, but I think that may not be true. Especially since the Anti- Defamation League initially supported the Mosque, though it has since requested that the center not be built voluntarily.
