Re: Culture War on Islam Edition (Adam Serwer & Eli Lake)
I am baffled by Always Cynical's post. I explicitly say I don't care if the mosque is built, that I don't challenge the property rights of the Cordoba House project to build the mosque, and that people in free societies don't have a right not to be offended. I also say that those who limit their opposition to expressing that they are offended by the project are not practicing a form of bigotry. If the opposition to the mosque limits their activism to appealing to the organizers to find another location and not the state to block the project, then I see this as nothing more than the give and take a democratic society, and not evidence of a new cultural war on Muslims.
