I'm not sure I understand the connection between what you've said and what I said. My point is this: if we make a decision on this building strictly on consequentialist criteria, then the building should go up. What better way to stick a thumb in the eye of all Muslims than to say "The only religious building that can't be built near Ground Zero is anything having to do with your faith."
