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."
So, according to the White House, the families of 9/11 survivors and their memories be damned.
This isn't about religious freedom, it is about respect for the memories of those murdered on 9/11 by a violent political ideology that masquerades as a religion.
Barack Hussein Obama is a treasonous bastard, as is his rotten Democrap party, who are so willing to side with Islamofascist terrorists as a way to attack the legacy of George W. Bush and conservative Republicans.
2012 or impeachment, whichever comes first, cannot come soon enough.
