Esthier,

kindly show me the error of questioning the basis of the objection and/or explain why you think the accusation is of bigotry rather than unsound reasoning.

But, then again, I don’t hate and fear Islam.

As if, by implication, those of us that object to the mosques being build *do* somehow hate and fear Islam.

I don’t see a good reason to be against the building of a mosque/cultural center two blocks from Ground Zero. In fact, the arguments in favor sound quite reasonable to me. But, then again, I don’t hate and fear Islam.

And yet another American political philosopher falls for Taqiyah. Congrats, CK.

Finally, re-assigning collective guilt in the other direction by calling conservatives bigots or Islamophobes cannot be justified either.

Translation into standard English: "Some of my best friends are conservative!"

This piece of psychobabble just oozes ignorance and condescension.
