Okay, so which is it? If the American people want it, it’s a sure bet Obama will oppose it.

The next day:

White House spokesman Bill Burton [the likely future press secretary] released the following statement on behalf of Obama’s stance on constructing the mosque.

“Just to be clear, the president is not backing off in any way from the comments he made last night. It is not his role as president to pass judgment on every local project. But it is his responsibility to stand up for the constitutional principle of religious freedom and equal treatment for all Americans. What he said last night, and reaffirmed today, is that If a church, a synagogue or a Hindu temple can be built on a site, you simply cannot deny that right to those who want to build a mosque.”

So, who exactly has come out to ban ALL mosques in America or has come out to oppose the rights of Muslims to practice their faith? I’m sick and tired of trying to parse this guys words.

It’s a simple question: are you in favor of the building of this mosque at this site or not?

It’s that simple but it’s also a sure thing that if the majority of Americans are opposed to something, Obama will be in favor of it. Look at the history of the last year and a half. Every single thing that he has had his court jesters – Reid and Pelosi – push through congress, has been in direct opposition to what the people want.

Once again, Obama has jumped into an issue that he would have been better off keeping his pie-hole closed about. It’s very clear where his sympathies lie.

No one has said it better than this:

“Barack Obama has abandoned America at the place where America’s heart was broken nine years ago, and where her true values were on display for all to see,” said Debra Burlingame, a spokeswoman for some Sept. 11 victims’ families and the sister of one of the pilots killed in the attacks.

    It’s really difficult, if not impossible, to separate the religion from the politics when it comes to Islam. Out here in the Mohave Desert where I live, we have a mosque across the street from WalMart. Those who attend (many are doctors and their families) bother no one and no one bothers them. But when you go to the urban mosques, it’s a different story. There, I think, politics are taught and NOT religion.
    No one has ever said that their religion should be banned in America. But like many have said, just because they have the right to do something does not make it the right thing to do.

    You did a good job here Roxy! What chaps my a$$ is when he says “As difficult as some of these issues are, we need to stay focused…”
    What he’s saying is “Yeah, 3,000 Americans were murdered at Ground Zero, so just suck it up.”
    Everyone does not have the right to practice their own religion here in Amercia when that “religion” requires the deaths of all those that don’t believe that way.
