Obamy jumped into the Constitution,freedom of religion, freedom to worship "the law of the land". I jumped with glee at those remarks, soon enough we can shove them back at him, too bad he wont be around as president when the mosque is built.
Our Constitutions intent is freedom of religion as well as American Law.
When immigrants come to our shores they come for the right to work, be paid, freedom of religion and the Laws of the United States of America.
What will freedom of religion mean to the inhabitants of this new mosque.
Becoming an American, coming here to the USA means you are subject to OUR LAWS.
How is this going to sit with radical muslims? Will they attempt to circumvent our laws by saying their laws are religious.
Almost every country where muslims live has been to court over the right of muslims to use Sharia law instead of the law of the land they live in.
Many liberal judges in countries have been faced with honor killings as we are now.
Muslims say they are not subject to our law but to sharia law. One only has to look at riots, severe problems with muslims in England, France,Holland, Denmark, Australia to name a few. Look up at whats happening in our country now and it will only get worse.
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.
UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION 1st AMENDMENT
I guess the Founders thought freedom of religion (even Islamic religion) was important enough to be protected in the very First Amendment. Mosque, Synagogue, Catholic Church, Mormon Temple, whatever. We are the land of the free, remember?
There are two issues involved: 1. Whether Muslims have the right of religion expression? No question. The Constitution guarantees it. They can build mosques.
2. Whether building a mosque near "ground zero" is inappropriate and insensitive.
Hell, yes! Building a mosque near "ground zero" is tantamount to building a Mitsubishi plant next to the Arizona memorial; building the Mexican consulate inside the Alamo; building a "draft dodger" statue in the Arlington cemetery; etc.
No way. No how. Where is the legendary "SENSITIVITY and civil awareness" the politically-correct use in similar issues?
Protest this "slap on the face" to America by the hypocrite left!
If permission is given to build the mosque I predict they will have difficulty finding anyone to build it. If they find someone, it'll be the most picketed projected in American history. Lastly if all else fails you'll see target practice.
