I wrote a post in May of this year about how the Obama Administration—then in the guise of Eric Holder’s suit against Arizona’s new Immigration law, seems to go out of their way to antagonize the citizens of this country. Over the weekend, Obama did it again by speaking out in favor of the two mosques to be built next to the 9/11 site in New York City.
The idiot left has been pushing this effort for some time first by NYC Mayor Bloomberg and then by the NYC government and zoning commission. The construction unions are beginning to unite against the construction of the two mosques and opposition is reaching tsunami levels across the country.
Last Friday evening at an IFTAR dinner to celebrate Ramadan, an Islamic holy period, Obama said muslims have a right to build there once they bought the property.
That, is a lie. Ownership of property do not have the right to build whatever they want. Zoning laws across the country refute that statement. Near Kansas City, a large protestant congregation was refused permission to build a large church in the middle of a residential area.
What did NY do? They changed the zoning practice* to allow the mosque in the middle of the business district. Yes, there has been churches and other religious building in other business districts but in most cases those religious sites pre-existed the zoning laws. The practice up to this point was to disapprove zoning exceptions for religious institutions.* There was a Greek Orthodox Church that was heavily damaged in the 9/11 attack. They STILL have been granted approval to rebuild.
Why is it that the democrats and the idiot left push Islam to our detriment while constraining Christianity?
That question will have to be answered elsewhere. But for now, here are some comments about Obama’s statements and his backpedaling the following day when he realized just how deep he stepped into it.
