I Don’t Think That Word Means What You Think It Means

The new Museum of Tolerance isn’t being very, well… tolerant.

The museum is funded by The Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish human rights organization. Rabbi Meyer May, the Wiesenthal Center’s executive director, tells Crain’s the proposed location is “insensitive” to the families of 9/11 victims, adding that “religious freedom does not mean being insensitive…or an idiot. Religion is supposed to be beautiful…. Why create pain in the name of religion?”

I got to say I love the whole quote, but that last line really fucking made me laugh.
