“As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practise their religion as anyone else in this country,” Obama said, weighing in for the first time on the controversy.
“That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community centre 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.”
While insisting that the place where the twin towers once stood was indeed “hallowed ground,” Obama said that the proper way to honour it was to apply American values and show “a way of life that stands in stark contrast to the nihilism of those who attacked us on that September morning, and who continue to plot against us today.”
Now that’s some change I can believe in.
and for all of you who are so inclined, please don’t bother leaving your of course Obama would support it because he’s a dirty muslim terrorist comments. That kind of stuff is completely ridiculous and unless you enjoy being ridiculed and/or ignored, all you’re doing is wasting everybody’s time.
