I'm speechless

After hours of emotional public comment, a New York city community board has voted overwhelmingly to support a plan to build a mosque and cultural center near Ground Zero. . .

C. Lee Hanson, whose son, Peter, died in the trade center, said he opposed the project, not because he was intolerant but because it would be insensitive to build a tribute to Islam so close to Ground Zero.

"When I look over there and I see a mosque, it's going to hurt," Hanson said, according to The Times. "Build it someplace else."

In our politically correct rush to be sensitive to others, can we ever expect others to be sensitive to us?
