A fantastic quote by John Oliver with a little sarcastic humour to make the point:
There is a difference between what you can do and what you should do. For instance, you can build a Catholic church next to a play ground. Should you?
From The Daily Show with John Stewart August 16, 2010 episode
Now, quite obviously I am not a theist, and I believe that theism is a force that tends to drag people into drooling fits of intellectual despair, but having said that I think that it is important to let people explore their beliefs and to worship how they see fit. I don’t go to church myself, and I don’t really like that so many people do, but I don’t try to prohibit peoples religious beliefs. Although I would prefer it if people would abandon their religious superstitions all together, I find it hypocritical that so many non-Muslim people in the US would try to deny the religious freedoms of Muslims by trying to prohibit the building of a Mosque at the old site of the World Trade Centre.
