On Hallowed Ground

Contra Dreher, Joe Klein approves of building a mosque near the site of the World Trade Center:

It is an instant, international symbol that mocks the closed, vicious religious insanity of the terrorists who took the buildings down. Dreher worries about the families of those who lost their lives that day; I would expect that they will accept this, among the many other memorials on the site, as part of their loved ones' legacy–a renewed national sense of what this country stands for, and what it stands against.
