    Replace Catholic in every instance with Muslim.

    Not saying that is what any particular Mosque is doing. In fact, I usually err on the side of thinking Cain's type of outrage is ignorant and borderline racist. Just saying.
    An abuse, sure. That doesn't change their right, just like it doesn't change Westboro's right to protest at every funeral they want to (I think they're world-class douchebags, but they have that right).

    Or to, say, build a mosque church.

    I had 3 hours sleep last night, forgetting a 'f' is pretty good.

    And grammar has an 'a', not an 'e'.

    Yeah, all that stuff would never leave the ground in America, so all this fretting about Sharia Law is pretty pointless, a small minority cannot change the constitution.
