Who is and isn’t responsible

William Saletan has a pitch-perfect article in Slate about the real lessons to be drawn about the Ground Zero Mosque controversy from the Koran-burning controversy.

A pastor who preaches at a nearby Florida church is aghast at the global outrage the Quran-burning minister has provoked. “He represents only 30 people in this town,” the pastor tells the New York Times. “It needs to get out somehow to the rest of the world that this isn’t the face of Christianity.”

It will, Reverend. Right after it gets out to the rest of the world that we don’t think the 9/11 hijackers are the face of Islam.

Meanwhile, Sarah Palin gets it exactly wrong. As usual.
