America the Un-Bigoted

If you disagree with building the Ground Zero mosque, you must be a bigot according to liberals. But Jonah Goldberg has a nice piece on the whole controversy today:

In any decent society, tolerance must work both ways. If the majority is expected to show respect for a minority, the minority must also show some tolerance for the values of the majority...And one of the things common sense should tell us is that it is not only unfair but terribly ill-advised to portray 7 out of 10 Americans as bigots when they are anything but.

It's time the left stopped demonizing people who have the common sense concern about building a mosque near the site where a group of Muslims attacked America.
