This just tops the F**king cake for me. This hunk of shit should be run out of office ASAP. I can't understand why the fools follow this asshole. I am all for the rights of everyone and how they practice their religion but do it away from the area where people of your religion KILLED OVER 3000 AMERICANS!!!!! I would never tell a person who or how to practice their faith, but where they do it is another thing. Just like the Church of Satan, and Satanism. It's not for me and if it's for you go with it but don't do it near a school, church, or playground. Letting them build this mosque near ground zero is a slap in the face to all the family and loved ones who lost someone on 9/11. Someone needs to pimp slap the fools in office!!!!

WASHINGTON – After skirting the controversy for weeks, President Barack Obama is weighing in forcefully on the mosque near ground zero, saying a nation built on religious freedom must allow it.
"As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country," Obama told an intently listening crowd gathered at the White House Friday evening to observe the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
"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," he said. "This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable."
The White House had not previously taken a stand on the mosque, which would be part of a $100 million Islamic community center two blocks from where nearly 3,000 people perished when hijacked jetliners slammed into the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001. Press secretary Robert Gibbs had insisted it was a local matter.
