Tonight the Commander in Chief has endorsed the Ground Zero mosque project. From AP:
“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 said, weighing in for the first time on a controversy that has riven New York City and the nation.
“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.”
Obama made the comments at an annual dinner in the White House State Dining Room celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
I wonder if he cut a check to Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, for the upcoming fund raising junket to the Middle East, at the Ramadan dinner.
At the next protest I think I’ll wear my old, partially-melted work boots that are covered with a a veneer of toxic chemicals and the dust of human cremains.
Greetings from occupied territory!
