Groend Zero Mosque - THE QUESTION: Religious freedom vs. wisdom

THE QUESTION 

Religious freedom vs. wisdom

The Washington Post Blog: On Faith

President Obama, after saying that building a mosque at Ground Zero fit our "commitment to religious freedom,"he wasn't commenting on the 'wisdom' of building it so close to 'hallowed ground.'
 
backtracked, saying A Fox News poll showed that while 61 percent of Americans believe that Cordoba House has a constitutional right to build near Ground Zero, 64 percent believe it is not appropriate to do so.
Does Obama's hedging show a lack of ethical convictions? Does Hamas' endorsement change the debate? What is behind public opposition to the site? Can you believe in religious freedom but not believe the mosque is appropriate?
