it's like an 8 layer dip of wrongness

I find it very offensive to get lectured about religious liberty at a time when there are no churches and no synagogues in Saudi Arabia and when no Christian and no Jew can walk into Mecca....I'd love to have these folks say, "Let's build a church and a synagogue in Mecca, or rather Saudi Arabia, and that would balance off our having an interfaith mosque [in lower Manhattan]." They're not saying that. It is entirely one-sided. It is entirely, I think, a kind of triumphalism that we should not tolerate.
