Ground Zero is “Sacred Ground”

In yesterday’s post on the religion of nationalism, I noted that Ground Zero is sacred ground for the believer-patriots of American national religion.  If you questioned this assertion, doubt no more — the GOP has produced an incendiary video which declares that Ground Zero is “sacred ground” and that an Islamic mosque cannot be built near the site:

As you can see in the first frame, a cross is prominently displayed.  The symbolism here is powerful — Christian America is at war with radical Islam.

This undoubtedly will be a hot button issue in the upcoming elections.  Politicians will campaign as fervent patriots and condemn as a blasphemer or non-patriot any candidate who does not oppose the mosque.  As is usually the case when religion and politics mix, it will be an ugly race to the bottom.
