    Thank you. I worded that poorly. I will blame it on the double shift!

    Wonder how he'd react if a Muslim group blocked the building of a church.

    And all the little pigs have God

    No community has the right to block the construction of any religious building, nor should they be allowed to. Part of the free exercise of religion is attending a religious service in a religious building.
    I agree that hypocrites exist but not only within the atheist sub group. It's similar to hyperpartisanship. Many are blind to their own hypocrisy.

    Absolutely un-American. I know people throw that phrase around at anything they don't like, but it's true in this case.

    The interview was revealing in that it showed just how ill-suited for the job Mr. Cain would be. Some highlights:

    1. His advocacy of approaches that would violate the First Amendment's guarantee of religious freedom.

    2. His lack of understanding of what would happen if the federal government had to immediately cut expenditures by 44% (basically he seems to think all major obligations could be met even when the funding wouldn't exist).

    3. His throwing around the terms static and dynamic analysis when he knows nothing about them. When the capital gains tax would be eliminated/reduced to 0%, both static and dynamic analysis would indicate that there would be no capital gains tax revenue. The tax wouldn't exist. Hence, Mr. Cain's claim that dynamic analysis wouldn't show a complete loss of capital gains tax revenue reveals a lack of understanding of the two budgetary approaches.

    4. He claimed to be a "problem solver" but offered not even a single concrete example of problem-solving. Rather, he claimed to have an edge in problem-solving experience over the rest of the field, as if such a claim would substitute for an absence of evidence.

    In sum, Mr.Cain is not Presidential material and not a credible candidate. His polling numbers will very likely continue to fade as more and more learn that he is little more than a hollow candidate.

    I'm going to be honest here, you're being a hack.

    Just because a group has its own flaws doesn't mean it can't point out other flaws. What you're selfishly doing for political gain would hold up the progress of humanity. As it stands, I am completely against what Cain said on banning mosques, but at the same time, I'm completely for maintaining 2nd amendment rights.

    Ergo, my position proves your statement is wrong (because you obviously mean every liberal; all you do is deal in absolutes).

    He might as well have, it has the same implications. Actually if he said that, I would have a little bit more respect for him, because at least he is then being open about his prejudices. Right now, he's hiding behind the "people"
