Religious Extremism by any other name...

Hmmm. If the argument against the Muslim community center / mosque at Ground Zero is that building it would be disrespectful to all the people who died there at the hands of a few "Islamic extremists," then by golly it sure seems like building a cathedral anywhere in Spain or England ought to cause outrage. Thousands died in those countries at the hands of those claiming to be Christian - ever hear of the Inquisition? Or Bloody Mary?

To say nothing, of course, of the Crusades through the 'bible lands;' using the above logic, then, no Christian places of worship should be built - or exist at all - in any of those countries.

I'm not even going to try to be poetic or profound here. All I have to say is what a bunch of crap.
