DOUBLE STANDARD ON RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE

The Ground Zero mosque and Koran-burning story expose the hypocrisy of the Left on religious tolerance. Try to imagine anyone on the Left defending Christianity the way Clinton defends Islam here:

Clinton called the plans to burn the Koran “outrageous”. She said, “It doesn’t in any way represent America or Americans or American government or American religious or political leadership. And we are, as you’ve seen in the last few days, you know, speaking out.”

Clinton also said, “I am heartened by the clear, unequivocal condemnation of this disrespectful, disgraceful act that has come from American religious leaders of all faiths, from evangelical Christians to Jewish rabbis, as well as secular US leaders and opinion-makers. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.”

Both the burning the Koran and building the mosque can be done, but should not be done. The Left is quick to point this fact out about the burning the Koran, but not about the mosque.

A guest host on Glenn Beck’s radio program rightly made the point (paraphrasing), if “respect” is the real issue on the Koran burning, why is “respect” not an issue on the Ground Zero mosque, or is it fear.
