It really is the media's fault

Elf on the media and the "ground zero" mosque, quoted in entirety for truth:

Dear Mainstream Media:

Here we are, three weeks or so into the BurlingtonNorthernCoatFactoryIslamicCommunityCenter controversy, and only now are you learning that Imam Rauf is a Sufi? And only now you're learning that "sufism" is distinct from the Shia'a or Sunni traditions, a mystical and highly tolerant tradition that the Shia'a and Sunni traditions generally look down upon?

We've been at war in several countries where these are major issues and you still don't understand them? Where the hell is your responsibility to educate the American people?

And Jason Mustian weighs in:

In fairness, we've been building 'ground zeros' near Iraqi mosques since March 2003.

It's shameful, cowardly bigotry. Does our Bill of Rights mean nothing to anyone anymore? It wasn't too long ago that Catholic churches or Jewish synagogues were similarly "encouraged" to locate themselves elsewhere. Now of course they say that the presence of a Muslim community center is "insensitive". "You don't really want that controversy do you?" "Just get to the back of the bus and don't make trouble." "Those water fountains are just as good as the one here."

Shape up America. The future is watching.
