Received this in my mail this morning: Washington Post News Alert: President backs Islamic complex near Ground Zero in New York 08:30 PM EDT Friday, August 13, 2010 President Obama said on Friday that he supports the construction of a mosque near Ground Zero in New York, saying that opposing the project is at odds with American values. "Let me be clear: as a citizen, and as President, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country," he said at a White House ceremony marking the traditional breaking of the daily Ramadan fast, according to prepared remarks. "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." Some leading Republicans have urged that the mosque project be halted. --- I don't normally talk politics, but I have to say I feel President Obama is being disrespectful unless this complex supports all religions and denominations. No matter if people can understand the difference between radicals and those whom also fell victim on 9/11, an Islamic-only complex is going to raise lots of unnecessary heat and turmoil.
