Back to the "religious war" to stir the base

Interesting how the proposed Islamic center near the WTC site went by for months, with not a hint of disapproval from conservatives. But once we started getting closer to the election cycle, and the Republican edict was to stir race and religious intolerance, all of a sudden they're outraged.

So, Republicans are all of a sudden against an Islamic center. OK, well what does the "family values" party approve of in that space?

Then again, this is the party that says the US border with Mexico in Arizona is Arizona's business, and the rest of us should ignore it. While they micromanage NYC after letting the actual ground zero remain a pit for Bush's entire administration.

Personally, I'm still trying to understand how former Burlington Coat Factory
locations became "sacred ground". Jon?

  • Also, Republicans unanimously passed a law that gave special protection to religious land uses. This is the law that now makes it illegal to block this cultural center.

    Now they're trying to make a political issue about how terrorist-loving NYC is being when they follow this GOP mandate.

  • Then this Republican rising star.
    Marco Rubio: 'Ground Zero Mosque' Controversy Won't Hurt U.S.-Muslim Relations

    Uh, Marco, didn't you get the memo? The whole point is to stir up hatred - people of different religions, ethnicities, color, all that great old stuff. Get with the program.
