    Herman Cain: Communities have right to ban mosques

    Herman Cain: Communities have right to ban mosques

    Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Sunday that communities have a right to ban Islamic mosques.

    Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," the former Godfather's Pizza CEO said protests and legal challenges to a planned mosque in Tennessee city are an example of local residents pushing back.
    This is my biggest problem with Cain. He is willing to blatantly violate the Constitution in this manner, and will hide being the facade of, "but the people want to!"

    Member of the KKK want to exterminate blacks, jews, catholics, etc. Doesn't f**king mean we let them.

    Herman Cain really is just horrible. What he says will corrupt and destroy America and her values, and I hope this man doesn't get a single vote for President, because he is absolutely wrong for this job.

    Hermann Cain could never get away with it. He would be struck down by the First Amendment.

    Just the fact that he WANTS to is a serious problem. Does he truly believe this, or is he catering to the Evangelical wing of the GOP. Either way, I swear the Evangelical Protestants are going to hand Obama a second term, and if that DOES come to pass, while I am commanded by my faith to forgive, I will certainly not forget...

    A black conservative who is openly homophobic, xenophobic and bigoted? How shocking. Sadly, Herman Cain is a product of both the black community and Protestant xenophobia. He brings the worst of both worlds alive. A black community who openly attacks anything that isn't Christian, black and ignorant and a Conservative community who attacks anything that isn't ignorant, gun toting and Christian.

    If his statement was that Sharia law wouldn't be legal or recognized I would agree, but to ban a mosque is a clear violation of the constitution.

    Funny how he wants to restrict religion and he gets the scorn of many of the same people who would want to restrict or perhaps repeal the second amendment.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Regardless of the scorn of a hypothetical group of people that you seem to be dragging into this, how do you feel. Should communities have the right to block the construction of mosques? If so, should a community also have the right to block a Christian or Jewish place of worship from being built?

    As much as you may like to peg atheists as hateful towards religion, on the contrary, many are quite of all faiths. (I assume this was what your statement referred to. If not, disregard the last sentence)

    Sharia law is already legal.....




    as long as it does not conflict with standing US law. You do realize that there is freedom of contract in the US right?

    There is nothing hypothetical about many of these hypocrites.



    how do you feel. Should communities have the right to block the construction of mosques? If so, should a community also have the right to block a Christian or Jewish place of worship from being built?
    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.
