Big Tent. A Big Christian Tent.

Didn't I just write this post? Oh, no. That was A Big White Tent. It's so hard to keep all the bigness and the tentiness of the GOP straight. Speaking of which, it's A Big Straight Tent, too. I don't have a current post on that, but give it a day or so…

Anyway, the Big Christian Tent can only stay so beautifully Christified with lots of maintenance and tools, like New York Congressman Peter King, for instance—who is just certain that the US' problems with radical Islam come down to there being too many darn mosques.

Unfortunately, we have too many mosques in this country. There are too many people who are sympathetic to radical Islam. We should be looking at them more carefully. We should be finding out how we can infiltrate.

…I think there’s been a lack of full cooperation from too many people in the Muslim community. And it’s a real threat here in this country.
I'm not certain how many people there are in America who are "sympathetic to radical Islam," but I am fairly certain that having Congressman waxing nutzoid about the number of mosques in the country (not to mention calling Muslims "an enemy living amongst us") is more likely to generate sympathy for radical Islam than the bricks and mortar of an infinite number of mosques in a country welcoming of Muslims.
