    President Obama comes out in support of Ground Zero mosque

    New York Post
    Aug 13, 2010

    President Obama strongly backed the mosque planned near Ground Zero as he celebrated Ramadan with Muslim Americans at the White House – saying it shows that America’s commitment to to religious tolerance is "unshakeable."

    "Let me be clear: 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," Obama said in his first comments on the controversy.

    As of today 61% of New Yorkers many of them democrats, are aginst the ground zero mosque. Obama comes out in support. Not a very smart move on his part.

    Again people may not like it, but nothing legally can be done. What would you want the President to do say no they can't build it?

    what a shame, Obama supports upholding the law.

    Re: President Obama comes out in support of Ground Zero mosque

    I believe what he's doing is this:

    Coming out in support of the 1st Amendment.

    If you have a problem with it. Change it. But he's kinda upholding the constitution in this case...

    You know that thing you accuse him of destroying...

    So Obama should base his stance on issues based on polls?

    Except that Obama doesnt give a damm about people's rights. His MO is that if conservatives are against it, by default he has to be for it. Did Obama do the right thing? Yes but only in spite not because its the right thing to do.

    Agreed.

    All these people's objections tell me that they SHOULD build this mosque.

    saying he was against it wouldn't have done anything either, 'cept he'd be criticised for going against the law, he just took the path of least resistance.

    Obama should stay out of this. If the KKK announced plans to build a shrine at the site of the 16th Street Baptist Church, would Obama be talking about religious freedom? I agree that they have a right to build this mosque but I also believe they have an agenda and it has nothing to do with tolerance and understanding.

    What agenda is this? I hope you're not referring to Sharia Law
