Obama Mosque

The voices crying out to disallow this project are the same intolerant bigoted voiced that led to the rise of the brutal regimes in Germany and China and Italy in the middle of the last century. The sensitivity of the victims - is not a real excuse - that is a simple excuse to allow xenophobic, hostile, racist and prejudiced thinking to take root in our democracy. muslims died in the collapse of the towers as did jews and christians and non-believers. This was not an attack by the world muslims on America. It was an attack by a handful of thugs. We cannot let our own native thugs take control of this debate. Please people, come to your senses.

McCartney definitely needs to stay out of politics. He doesn't have a clue.

And "Obama Mosque" needs to stop spamming posts with off-topic responses.

To honor Mohammed Atta, let's get that mosque built pronto! tic

I don't care where they build the mosque. But does the president read books?

If they want to build the mosque at Ground Zero, fine. But I also understand, and I think everyone understands, the negative reaction.

Would even the Scots welcome a mosque at Ground Zero in Lockerbie? Doubt it.

I believe if you read that again, the comment about not breaking the book in two months can be attributed to the The New York Times’s Michael Powell. Obama merely says that “Yeah, you have very little chance to really read. I basically floss my teeth and watch Sports Center.” .. not flattering, but ...

He might be studying the Quran.

"Yes, presidents are busy people. But this president has been described as the intellectual opposite of his predecessor."

That still could be true. One likes to read new information, and maybe one does not. That counts as opposite in my book.

That said, I would like to give a literary allusion to let you guys know that I am a big reader of stuff and things. When Obama said he was going to run again in 2012, I said, "See Obama run. Run, Obama. Run."

Just How Smart Is Obama?

Obama doesn't have the first idea about what religious freedom means. Take Islam for example. The entire religion, and culture that surrounds it is oppressive and bigoted - to women, to anyone of another religious belief, to anyone who doesn't follow its tenets. And this a**wipe "president" of ours insists on defending an imam who has excoriated America and American people - similar to the Irreverend Wright.
