I've heard people decry the Confederate flag flying on statehouse grounds in SC, saying that it is insensitive. I've also heard people decry the would be Ground Zero mosque, also saying it is insensitive. Not surprisingly, there is very little overlap among the two groups doing the decrying. What I'd like to have explained, by anyone taking any side, is why one is indeed insensitive while the other is not. note: Thread inspired by Ravi's self-pwnage in another thread.
