which one of these things is most alike

You remember those SAT analogies. Yeah, I hated them too. But I think they may come in handy when trying to deal with those simple minded, single minded, completely nonsensical idiots who are opposing the Ground Zero Islamic center (cough, Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, cough) on the grounds that it is offensive to the memory of the people who died in 9/11 (oh and for those Muslims who died in 9/11, well they just don't count because clearly they weren't real Americans anyway)

Saying that building this Muslim center is offensive to the relatives of 9/11 victims is the same as...

a) saying that building a Christian church near the Holocaust Musem is offensive (because you know, some of those Nazis were Christian and it really dishonors the memory of Holocaust victims who were persecuted for their religion to allow religious freedom and if you disagree with that then clearly you love Hitler)

b) saying that having a lion exhibit at the National Zoo mere yards away from where meerkats live is offensive (because lions totally eat meerkats in the wild, and it's really thoughtless to those meerkats' memory and their loved ones to have lions put in their faces like that)

c) saying that allowing people to wear white anywhere in the continental US is offensive because the KKK wore white, and that's really insensitve to strut around in white clothing in this enlightened day and age and anyone who does wear white clearly hates black people

d) all of the above.

Annnd for a perfect SAT score and proof that you're a logical, sensible person, the answer is D!!!
