The impressive Jamie Glazov, editor of the likewise impressive Frontpage Magazine, did a quick but intense interview with me last week. It was headlined “Censoring Klavan” and dealt mostly with the recent cancellation of Empire of Lies in France. We did touch on other subjects however. For instance, here’s me on the Ground Zero Mosque:
“I mean, let’s face it: what an insensitive, cruel, rude and un-neighborly act it is to build a giant mosque just there. Yet they perpetrate this insult in the smarmy name of “bridge-building,” and if you oppose what’s essentially a kick in the teeth to the sensibility of any normal human being, you get the full self-righteous religious tolerance lecture from some preening government or media Bozo. But again, it’s a trap, a ploy. Religious tolerance isn’t even the issue. There’s no moral need to approve building a mosque near Ground Zero any more than you need to approve a man baring his backside at a gay pride parade to prove you’re not homophobic. Tolerance can only exist within some framework of moral and neighborly action. I know that’s tough to work out, but there’s no way around it.”
