    and what if a Jewish politician calls for the closing of all Churches?

    by the way, your views on this and other matters, are in complete contradiction with everything America represents, lives for, and has fought for.

    Ok, show us a transcript of the context, and let us evaluate it. I can't find a transcript to see if you are asserting this truthfully, erroneously or merely in ignorance.

    In the meantime, I think it is warranted to wonder whether Cain's ostensibly vigorous defense of religious freedom goes both ways. There is a minority of Christians who advocate for rule of society based on Biblical Law. One must wonder, with his concern for religious freedom, whether he has spoken out against these Christians when they open new churches.

    Re: Cain: Tenn. Mosque Infringes on Religious Freedom

    I want a president who will be on the look-out for the infiltration of sharia law.
    I also have no problem with asking plenty of questions before Mega Mosques are allowed to be built.



    The Two Malcontents » Tennessee:Mega Mosque Plans Target America’s Heartland
    No Public Debate
    Cardoza-Moore told CBN News that Rutherford County commissioners pushed through the mega-mosque with no public debate or input. She said residents were shocked when they learned about the project:
    “We were asking our country commissioners, ‘Please, before we start and give the approval for a mega mosque, a 52,000-square foot facility for 200 people, can we please look into some of the people affiliated – the donors, who is going to fund this mosque?’”
    Many asked why a small Islamic community of only about 250 families needs what would be one of the largest mosque complexes in America.

    [QUOTE]
    Mosque Funding?

    It’s been estimated that as many as 80 percent of American mosques have received funds from Saudi Arabia, where the official state religion is radical Wahhabi Islam.
    Intelligence sources tell CBN News that many American mosques have been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood–an Islamist movement that seeks to establish Islamic sharia law worldwide.
    We asked Mayor Burgess if he and the Murfreesboro county commission were aware of these points.
    “I’m not informed about that, I don’t have any evidence,” he answered.
    “Don’t you think you should be informed, though?” CBN News asked.
    “As a basic citizen, I should be informed about every issue that I can be,” Burgess said. “But I can only enforce this rules and regulations that the state of Tennessee and the United States and Rutherford County have authorized me to enforce.”
    Questions on Mosque Leaders
    Yet serious concerns have been raised about imam Osama Bahloul and at least one board member of the Murfreesboro Islamic Center. Bahloul is a “distinguished graduate” of al-Azhar University in Egypt, where anti-Semitic and anti-American rhetoric is commonplace.
    He told CBN News off camera that he condemned the terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah and that Murfreesboro Muslims were just looking for a quiet place to worship. Yet he declined to appear on camera.
    Then there is Islamic Center board member Mosaad Rawash.
    Rawash was suspended from the board after pro-jihad slogans were found on his MySpace page. They’ve since been removed. A mosque spokesman said that Rawash is back on the board after being cleared of any wrongdoing.
    Locals also have other concerns–like where the millions of dollars are coming from to pay for the proposed complex

    Either way he's an idiot, for both indulging the slippery slop fallacy, and thinking that Sharia law will come into any meaningful position within US law.

    RCC churches are under the direct control and supervision of the Vatican in Rome. And the Vatican is a soverign state, with its own foreign policy. And billions of dollars in property and investments.

    does this trouble you....aswell?

    You know, this is not too dissimilar from the BS fear of some anti-Semites and other Neo-Nazis, who believe that the kosher food certification industry is an evil Jewish money-making and theft racket, all under the control of Zionists in Tel Aviv.
