In the past week, President Obama has voiced his support for a Muslim Mosque to be built at Ground Zero, the site of the 9-11 terrorist attacks in New York City.
This causes me to wonder what was the president doing and thinking on that fateful day.
It seems like the president is disconnected to the American people and their feelings. It has been suggested by many of our nation's leaders that the mosque is really a tribute to glorify the 9-11 Islamic terrorists that killed three thousand Americans and caused so much grief and pain. It was a terrible strike against the United States, and we will never forget it.
In my opinion, building a large expensive mosque 13 stories high, looming over ground zero is disrespectful and dishonoring to the victims and their families of 9-11. What happened to the plans to erect a memorial in honor of the victims?
Most Americans support the constitutional rights that call for freedom of religion; but not at ground zero! New York already has more than a hundred Muslim mosques, and there are mega-Muslim mosques being built all over America. Why is it so important to build one near ground zero where so many Americans were murdered?
The project is headed up by Muslim cleric Feisal Abdul Rauf. This is the same cleric who is being funded by the U.S State Department.
It has been said by the State Department that Feisal Abdul Rauf is a distinguished Muslim cleric and they have a program through their Educational and Cultural Affairs Bureau that sends people from Muslim communities here in this country around the world to help people overseas understand our society and the role of religion within our society.
I ask, is this coming from the same president who during his visit to Turkey told the Muslim audience that America is not a Christian, Jewish or Muslim nation? And has the U.S. State Department sent a Christian or Jewish or any other religious representative to the Middle East to "help people overseas understand our society and the role of religion ... "
November elections are coming up and I urge everyone to vote, but more than that; vote for the candidate who puts Americans first and not their own agenda.
Let your voice be heard!
