An interesting piece (if you get past the slightly angry tone) on the so called ‘ground zero mosque’ on MSNBC. Keith Olbermann clears up some of the confusion about the plans for a Muslim community centre near Ground Zero.

They are merely looking for new premises near their existing site which are fit for their purposes.
Either a country has religious freedom, or is doesn’t. There is no room for pretending to have religious freedom while shouting down everything that disagrees with one particular worldview.
