President Supports Mosque at 'ground zero' Critics Fire Back

Saturday, August 14, 2010

In support behind the controversial proposal to build an Islamic center and mosque near New York's ground zero, the President said "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." The President made these statements at a White House dinner celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Mayor Bloomberg of New York praised his statements in defense of the freedom of religion. But he also said " We must all recognize and respect the sensitivities surrounding the development of lower Manhattan," " The 9/11 attacks were a deeply traumatic event for our country." "The pain and suffering experienced by those who lost loved ones is unimaginable, " So I understand the emotions that this issue engenders. Ground Zero is, indeed, hallowed ground." "This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable," Obama said. "The principle that people of all faiths are welcome in this country, and will not be treated differently by their government, is essential to who we are. The writ of our Founders must endure."

Now who should dispute his statements made above? He is displaying what the critics call 'Political Correctness', but in their eyes, what he has just said doesn't make it right. Never the less, a difference of opinion on this issue will continue and people who oppose everything President Obama stands for will make statements against the President, regardless of what he states. An example would be from the son of former vice President Dan Quayle, Ben Quayle who is seeking a House seat in Arizona, making statements for political gain. So, What did he say? He said that President Obama is the worst President in U.S. History. With that statement, he may have lost his election. How can he make such a claim about a President who has only been in office for less than 2 years, a President who has not been afraid to institute legislation in that short period of time that other Presidents haven't been able to do in 8 years.
