Obama makes clear support for ground zero mosque

WASHINGTON (AP) – After skirting the controversy for weeks, President Barack Obama is weighing in forcefully on the mosque near ground zero, saying a nation built on religious freedom must allow it.

“As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country,” Obama told an intently listening crowd gathered at the White House Friday evening to observe the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

“That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances,” he said. “This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable.”

Is there ANY doubt where the loyalties of Barack Hussein Obama lie?

Many of us have accused him of being a ‘stealth Muslim’ since long before the presidential race of 2008. We didn’t, or, more precisely, I didn’t attack him for being half Black and half White, that is something he had NO control over. I did address the fact that I believe him to not be what he claims to be, a Christian. And for that questioning of Obama’s true religious belief, I have been called a vile racist.

I also happen to be one that believes Obama to be a non-citizen, but that’s another matter.

The White House had not previously taken a stand on the mosque, which would be part of a $100 million Islamic community center two blocks from where nearly 3,000 people perished when hijacked jetliners slammed into the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001. Press secretary Robert Gibbs had insisted it was a local matter.

Robert Gibbs, as big a PC, Casper Milquetoast moonbat as I believe him to be, is right in this instance. It is a local matter. Why then, if he is NOT a Muslim himself, does Barack Hussein Obama feel the need to weigh in on this matter? Is he pandering the Muslims for votes and support? Is he that desperate?

I know his approval among GOP members is non-existent, I know his approval is rapidly falling within his Democratic party. Is Barack Hussein Obama so desperate for some sort of vindication, some kind of support, that he would openly ingratiate himself to Islam?

Anyone that doesn’t believe that Barack Hussein Obama isn’t in the pocket of Islam needs to read this: America‚Äôs Rich Muslim Heritage.

Obama is a terribly confused individual where American history and heritage are concerned.

Obama elevated it to a presidential issue Friday without equivocation.

While insisting that the place where the twin towers once stood was indeed “hallowed ground,” Obama said that the proper way to honor it was to apply American values.

Apply American values? I have said on this blog before, it’s a good thing that people like Obama were not in power in 1941. We’d ALL be speaking Japanese right about now if they had been.

If Obama’s idea of the application of American values is any indicator, I have to believe that he would support the building of a Japanese temple at Pearl Harbor!

Do you want further proof that Barack Hussein Obama is a fool?

Harkening back to earlier times when the building of synagogues or Catholic churches also met with opposition, Obama said: “Time and again, the American people have demonstrated that we can work through these issues, and stay true to our core values and emerge stronger for it. So it must be and will be today.”

Apparently Obama is under the belief that the Jews and Catholics attacked America. That is the only way I could possibly see him justifying his remark. This isn’t about prejudice, the type exhibited by The Klan, and I am certain that their beliefs and practices are what Obama is using as his rationale.

Across Nation, Mosque Projects Meet Opposition

Across Nation, Mosque Projects Meet Opposition

While a high-profile battle rages over a mosque near ground zero in Manhattan, heated confrontations have also broken out in communities across the country where mosques are proposed for far less hallowed locations.

In Murfreesboro, Tenn., Republican candidates have denounced plans for a large Muslim center proposed near a subdivision, and hundreds of protesters have turned out for a march and a county meeting.

In late June, in Temecula, Calif., members of a local Tea Party group took dogs and picket signs to Friday prayers at a mosque that is seeking to build a new worship center on a vacant lot nearby.

In Sheboygan, Wis., a few Christian ministers led a noisy fight against a Muslim group that sought permission to open a mosque in a former health food store bought by a Muslim doctor.

Across Nation, Mosque Projects Meet Opposition

I’m not a lawyer, I have said that before. I don’t have any special legal training other than my Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice courses, so, this is an opinion piece, and is MY opinion.

I detest Islam and it’s followers. I personally feel that it has NO place in America. It is, again, in MY opinion, NOT a *Religion of Peace*, it is, in MY opinion, an antiquated sect of pedophile goat lovers that commit MURDER in the name of Allah.

If it were up to me, every Muslim in this nation would be banished forever, never to return. ALL Mosques would be demolished and the remains burned to ashes. Every Koran would be thrown into the conflagration as well.

That said;

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

It pains me greatly to have to point this out, but our own Constitution allows Muslims to be in this nation, to practice their ‘religion’ freely, and, if I have interpreted this correctly, I believe it also allows them the freedom to build their Mosques anywhere they are legally allowed to build in accordance with local ordinances and zoning.

That doesn’t mean I LIKE it, it doesn’t mean I agree WITH it, but the law of the land applies to ALL within the land.

At one time, neighbors who did not want mosques in their backyards said their concerns were over traffic, parking and noise ‚ÄĒ the same reasons they might object to a church or a synagogue. But now the gloves are off.

I can understand that! I can SUPPORT that. Whether it’s a Mosque, Church or Synagogue, if it’s being FORCED upon a neighborhood, if it’s being proposed and not properly zoned, if residents of the neighborhood can present a legitimate argument against it being built, AWESOME, that is a community working together and exercising their rights.

Barring legitimate issues against the building of a particular religious structure, unless we take the time and effort to AMEND to 1st Amendment, this will be a very slippery slope, and the amendment OF the 1st Amendment will be even more slippery. A dangerous proposition indeed.

In all of the recent conflicts, opponents have said their problem is Islam itself. They quote passages from the Koran and argue that even the most Americanized Muslim secretly wants to replace the Constitution with Islamic Shariah law.

These local skirmishes make clear that there is now widespread debate about whether the best way to uphold America’s democratic values is to allow Muslims the same religious freedom enjoyed by other Americans, or to pull away the welcome mat from a faith seen as a singular threat.

For me, Islam itself IS the reason, ALL the reason I need.

It wasn’t a Christian sect that planned, paid for and carried out the attacks on Marine Barracks Beirut, the 1st attack on the WTC, the bombing of the USS Cole or the 2nd attack on the WTC on Sept. 11th. It’s not Christian groups that continue to carry out other terrorist attacks around the world.
