In Defense of the Ground Zero Mosque
Contrary to what the Political Correctness Police would have us believe, there is no right not to be offended.
I am sorry, but it is so. There is, however, a right to the free practice of religion. Of course they can build. There is also a right to free speech. You can stand outside with a protest sign or build a billboard across the street saying "Jesus Saves". These are parts of the strength of America.
So, maybe, this might be better ...
On one side of the mosque build a synagogue. On the other build a Christian church, preferably a Pentecostal variety of some kind.
And my personal favorites, on the other side of the street, with flashing neon and chase lights a spectacular topless (bottomless?) club. And with smoke a-blowing, a TastyPig Bar-B-Que.
Like I said, in America, no one has the right not to be offended.
No point in building a gay bar, though, some things don't offend the Moslems.
