From The New York Times:
Across Nation, Mosque Projects Meet Opposition
Heated confrontations have broken out in communities where mosques are proposed near far less hallowed locations than ground zero in New York City.
The problem with the opposition to the New York mosque is that it now gives license to the racist groups everywhere to unfairly and improperly persecute Islam in general. Freedom of religion is a fundamental right in this country. Persecution of any group merely because of their religious beliefs is wrong. Stop the maddness, focus on the terrorists and not the religious or religion.
