The Senate’s second-ranking Democrat (pictured right) has come out squarely in favor of building the lower Manhattan community center, unlike Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (pictured left).

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.) said Sunday that those who are opposed to the mosque are trying to divide the country with fear and hate.

“The mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg, has given his assent to this center and I support his decision,” Durbin said Sunday. “The politicians like Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin who try to divide America with fear and hate over this issue betray the diversity which makes our nation great and the Constitution which they profess to honor.”

Harry Reid is fighting the far-right Sharron Angle for re-election and has, unfortunately, decided to take a position closer to the tea party candidate than to the Constitution.
