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.
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’s 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.
This is NOT about religious intolerance, it’s about Islam. Islam isn’t a religion, it is a sect. One that has sworn to dominate the world and kill ANY that refuse to accept it and it’s beliefs.
The last time I checked, Judaism and Christianity held NO views like that. Christians and Jews didn’t attack the Pentagon (9-11-2001), The World Trade Center (twice), Khobar Towers, Marine Barracks – Beirut, and a multitude of other attacks the world over.
No Mr. Obama, it’s not about religious intolerance or prejudice, it’s because Islam is the sworn enemy to all that are not Muslims. And let’s face the facts, Islam attacks and kills as many of it’s own as it does others, maybe more.
Islam is NOT a ‘Religion of Peace’, not in ANY way. Islam is a sect of murder and death, and it appears that the President of the United States is one of their biggest supporters.
So, I have to ask the Obama supporters that read here, how do you like him now?
