With basic knee-jerk emotional responses preventing the use of higher functions like thought, for example, most human beings are simple creatures. Why else do we allow people with scant moral integrity and minimal cognitive ability to lead us willy-nilly through the twin dark mazes of fear and hate?
Does it matter to anyone that there was a mosque on the 17th floor of the World Trade Center when it was attacked? Does anyone care that there are mosques already in that neighborhood? Are we blind to the presence of a strip club, bars and gambling near the hollowed ground we would protect from prayer? Which side of the moral equation are the protesters working for? It seems to me that a little more prayer in this world would be welcomed.
