The opponents of Cordoba House (that they ignoranty refer to as "Ground Zero Mosque") have realized that their protests against its construction go against the constitution of this country. Unable to defend their opposition to the mosque on constitutional grounds, they have found another way to justify their bigotry. Now they refer to the decision to build a mosque two blocks away from Ground Zero "insensitive." Rep. Peter King (R., N.Y.) was one of the first bigots to use the insensitivity argument. Now it is being gleefully picked up by every racist and Evangelical fundamentalist in the country.
The insensitivity argument is mind-boggling in its shamelessness. Americans wreaked unparalleled devastation on many areas of the world. To accuse of insensitivity a group of people who simply want to organize a place of worship is incredibly cynical. Equating Islam with terrorism is ignorant and simply wrong.
It has become painfully obvious that there will be no reasonable discussion about Cordoba House with these bigots. They don't dare to state openly that the only thing motivating their protests is hatred. So they keep coming up with convoluted arguments to explain why praying next to Ground Zero is wrong. Or, in this case, "insensitive."
