Re: Splitters and Lumpers (Josh Cohen & Jim Pinkerton)
A few thoughts on the Mosque issue:
I disagree with Josh's total rejection of calling the culture center a mosque. Since it includes a mosque, I don't think it's incorrect to refer to it as a mosque.
That being said, I don't buy James' argument. Suggesting that our cultural closed-mindedness during WW2, which helped lead to the internment of Japanese citizens, is to be admired or imitated, ignores the philosophy of multicuturalism in our society.
