Sarahcuda, as usual, cuts to the chase on her Facebook page:
Mr. President, should they or should they not build a mosque steps away from where radical Islamists killed 3000 people? Please tell us your position. We all know that they have the right to do it, but should they? And, no, this is not above your pay grade.
Oh no she didn’t!
If those who wish to build this Ground Zero mosque are sincerely interested in encouraging positive “cross-cultural engagement” and dialogue to show a moderate and tolerant face of Islam, then why haven’t they recognized that the decision to build a mosque at this particular location is doing just the opposite? Mr. President, why aren’t you encouraging the mosque developers to accept Governor Paterson’s generous offer of assistance in finding a new location for the mosque on state land if they move it away from Ground Zero? Why haven’t they jumped at this offer? Why are they apparently so set on building a mosque steps from what you have described, in agreement with me, as “hallowed ground”? I believe these are legitimate questions to ask.
We already know the answer:
Aides to Mr. Obama say privately that he has always felt strongly about the proposed community center and mosque, but the White House did not want to weigh in until local authorities made a decision on the proposal…
Those of us who noticed the snide tone of his voice when he said the words, “As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country,” know the the answer.
Those of us who remember that the President almost banned the White House nativity scene, last Christmas, know the answer.
Those of us who remember that Obama ended the practice of a National Day of Prayer ceremony in the White House, know the answer.
Those of us who remember how Obama had the cross and the Jesuit monogram, IHS covered when he spoke at Georgetown University, know the answer.
We few…we proud…we who still bitterly cling…know the answer.
The question is…will the President answer it honestly, or at all?
Awww, lookie here: Democrats have a question, too….‘Why? Why now?’”
