A potential consequence of Mosque Madness?

Columnist Frank Rich seems to think the jackals who are howling about the proposed Islamic cultural center in lower Manhattan (which is neither at "Ground Zero" nor truly a mosque) will end up doing more harm to their precious war in Afghanistan over the long run. Maybe. What they will do is expose themselves as bigots who care more about needless fearmongering for the sake of political gamesmanship than any legitimate security concern. Of course these yokels are going after not only this particular Islamic center, but any other Islamic cultural center or mosque throughout the US. Never mind that these same folks will say nothing about all the Christian churches being built or established - some of which are themselves genuine hotbeds of terrorist activity (you know, the ones that encourage their followers to show up at Congressional town hall meetings with firearms or who advocate the assassination of physicians who perform abortions, for example).

Said it before and will say it again: I will be very happy when August is over with.
