This photo is of one of many businesses within that circle of hallowed ground that protesters insist should not include a Muslim Community Center. I assume that, as a strip club serves to remind people of how sacred the bodies of the honored dead are, it has to stay. A place where people can gather to exercise, to swim, to have parties, to attend religious instruction classes, and to worship freely is an affront to the memories of the Muslims who were working in the World Trade Center that day, dying in a rain of fire and steel and glass.
Incidentally, I heard a report on NPR this morning that the anti-mosque folks, with all their red-faced hatred on full display, are feeding in to the views of extremists. So, please, continue to carry on about the community center and encourage more violence, more hatred of the United States. Play in to the hands of the terrorists by opposing nothing more than a Muslim version of a "Y".
