Bigotry

Imagine if you read this paragraph in your local paper:
To my mind, that is not being a good neighbor. In Dearborn, the Shia community is taking over, buying property and converting many of the large homes into mosques.
Or this:
To my mind, that is not being a good neighbor. In Atlanta, the African-American community is taking over, buying property and converting many of the large homes into Southern Baptist churches.
That would likely get the reporter fired, would it not? Well, here's the real version:
To my mind, that is not being a good neighbor. In Bayswater, the Satmar community is taking over, buying property and converting many of the large homes into synagogues.
Orthomom fisks the entire piece, top to bottom; a commenter basically made the same comments as above. It's a great piece of work by OM, dissecting and discarding every point in the piece.
