Hah hah hah hah

Rush likens NYC Islamic center to building a Hindu temple next to Pearl Harbor
Of course, as oppositeofprogress points out:
Limbaugh sarcastically suggests that we build a Hindu Temple next to Pearl Harbor and a Mosque next to the Pentagon... without realizing that Shinto, not Hinduism, is the most common religion in Japan, and there is already a Mosque inside the Pentagon and a Shinto temple next to Pearl Harbor.
Okay, I don't think there is really a mosque inside the Pentagon, but they're dead right as to Shintoism, not Hinduism being Japan's main religion (and India did not bomb Pearl Harbour). [What there is in the Pentagon is a chapel, just like any other military installation, that is non-denominational.
"We have a wide variety of services," says Wright. "Protestant, Catholic Jewish, Hindu, Mormon, Episcopalian and Muslim. It is not unlike any other military chapel in any other military instillation around the world."]
The mosque-in-the-Pentagon thing was the result of comments made by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., who represents the Ground Zero neighbourhood, on CNN. But still...Rush Limbaugh is a loud-mouth, hate-spewing idiot, in my humble opinion.
