Friday the 13th president Obama was quoted as follows: “As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country, 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, this is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable.”

Though I agree with the facts of what he is saying, are you kidding me?

Just because something is legal doesn’t always make it a good idea! Let’s make a Japanese religious shrine right next to the USS Arizona or a tribute to Timothy McVeigh next to the Mura Federal building site or memorialize Hitler at the Wailing Wall. How about a tribute to lynch mobs next to the Martin Luther King Jr. historical site!

I have done my best to give the man (Pres. Obama) the respect he deserves if just for the mere fact that he is the duly elected president. Now with his statement above I truly and firmly believe he is the first president of the United States of America that loathes America and hopes for and is actively working toward the dismantling and destruction of America.

These people who are seeking to build this Mosque are not doing this simply because it is a great place to go to church. No, they want to build it there because they want to show the rest of the Muslim world that they can stick it to the United States again while using our own laws to do so. Any good God fearing religious person whether you call him God or Allah knows you don’t make such an affront. This is just an affront, a slap in the face, a slap in the face from the Muslin extremists who brought down the World Trade Centers and that want to and will do all they can to destroy America.

And tonight they have another very strong ally that has come out on their side. Our president.
