Agreed. Remembering some of Dubya's illuminating quotes about other faiths, religious tolerance isn't something a president needs to support. Should, yes, as a decent human being. Needs, to be president? Probably not.

The Mosque supporters are now asking Bush to speak up for them.

Say what you will about the man, but he was very clear in his understanding that there was no conflict between the US and Islam.  One of the first things he said about the bombings was something like, "These people have hijacked a beautiful religion."

There's not much good I have to say about GWB, but even I give him that. It's also mentioned in today's NY Times in Frank Rich's summary of the mosque war so far, which I thought was right on point in pretty much every respect.

I wanna serve on the Enterprise! (Preferably as a bartender in Ten Forward, a la Whoopi Goldberg as Guinan on TNG, but I'm not terribly picky.)
....Hey! No fair! I'm trying NOT to let my ADHD drag me around, do you mind? :p

I don't know if you guys have been following this, but...

I just got back from a candlelight vigil near Ground Zero in support of the Islamic center planned for that area. Over two thousand New Yorkers showed up. My town did me proud.

That's a pretty good turnout in support of something the pundits have "everyone" against.

I hope this gets more press than I expect it to get.
