An invitation to a conversation

When he was a guest at Drinking Liberally, B.E.*, Rep. Keith Ellison spoke about the proposed Islamic Center in lower Manhattan near “ground zero,” and religious tolerance. He mentioned specifically Juan Williams’ remarks about fear of people wearing Muslim dress, and that the comments presented an “invitation to a conversation.” Rep. Ellison also spoke of the need to tend the “garden of our civil rights”constantly.
