    ...and yet, supports the building of the mosque.

    OLSON: I do believe that people of all religions have a right to build edifices or structures, places of religious worship or study where the community allows them to do it under zoning laws and that sort of thing. And that we don’t want to turn an act of hate against us by extremists into an act of intolerance for people of religious faith. And I don’t think it should be a political issue. It shouldn’t be a Republican or Democrat issue either. I believe Governor Christie from New Jersey said it as well, that this should not be in that political partisan marketplace.

    Watch it here:

    I agree with Olson.

    But if the point it that his opinion is supposed to bear greater weight because of his loss on 9/11, I've seen more than one family member of a 9/11 victim on TV opposing the mosque. If being a family member or friend of a 9/11 victim somehow gives one more credence, it looks like those in opposition are more numerous (or at least more vocal).
