My Argument for the Ground Zero Mosque

Since the left seems to be totally bereft of decent arguments in favor of the Ground Zero mosque, I decided to give them the only answer.

No, people who are against the building of a mosque at the site of the greatest Muslim atrocity in American history aren't bigots and they aren't subverting the First Amendment. It doesn't matter what buildings are nearby or if the people building the mosque really, really, really want to put it near Ground Zero as a celebration of tolerance.

The bottom line is that the government has no business determining whether a building goes into this spot as long as the business (or whatever) meets codes. And if enough protests prevent the building of the mosque, then that's a celebration of the First Amendment, too.

As hard as it must be, leftwingers need to stop making stupid arguments to support the mosque or the people who want to build it. Period.
