Dave Winer: “So yes, we should build a mosque where the World Trade Center used to stand. Because it’s consistent with our values, and because it’s the most arrogant and territorial thing we could do vis a vis the a**holes who blew up the WTC.”
I couldn’t agree more. We are a nation of many religions, contrary to what a lot of people believe, and our founders made sure to write it down, so we wouldn’t forget. The important line is Freedom of Religion, not Freedom from Religion. So, you can be Jewish, Christian, Muslim, or whatever.
I also like that it’s kind of flying the middle finger at the nut-job terrorists, that may be my favorite part of the whole thing.
