Skip to comments.Herman Cain: Communities have right to ban mosques
Posted on 07/17/2011 5:53:53 PM PDT by george76
Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Sunday that communities have a right to ban Islamic mosques.
Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," the former Godfather's Pizza CEO said protests and legal challenges to a planned mosque in Tennessee city are an example of local residents pushing back.
Cain said his view doesn't amount to religious discrimination because he says Muslims are trying to inject Shariah law into the U.S.

I think we have a definite right to oppose a clear and present danger in our communities.
OK, when can I vote for this guy, and how far do I have to drive to do it?
BUMP for great justice!
I disagree with the legal principle of incorporation which makes the Constitution apply to states. I don’t believe a state has to guarantee religious liberty, or any other kind of liberty, just because the Constitution of the US says so. The US Constitution should apply to the federal government alone.
That is my take on Cain’s take.
Thanks, Herman. I wish more candidates would say this.
We separate church and state; the Musims unite it, and are therefore inherently seditious. We might be able to tolerate a Muslim religious population of minor amounts, which we should keep that way by discouraging immigration. But, we should not encourage grand mosques which act as political and military indoctrination centers.
I’ve been meaning to donate to Cain for a while. This has spurred me to do it. I agree with Michael Savage that Islam is more a political and economic philosophy than a religion.
Adoption of the Muslim "faith" (more like Borg allegiance) is anathema to the American creed. one must adopt one or the other.
I applauded Herman Cain's understanding of this principal. I remain blessed with at least four attractive candidates; Palin, West, Bachmann and Cain.
The US Government is arm in arm with radical islam through toleration of the brotherhood and CAIR, of allowing monies from overseas to flow to certain causes, and unchecked immigration and allowing training camps on our soil. If they just stopped all these things it would buy us decades more of religious freedom.
~After reading the article, Cain’s argument still is not clear to me. They devoted more space to the rebuttal of a local politician than they did to Cain’s remarks. Is Cain saying that a community can abrogate property rights (a Muslim using his property as he sees fit) or abrogate the actual practice of Islam? Or is he saying that a community has the right to ban the application of Shariah law?
Who am I to vote for, Herman Cain or Lt. Col. West?
Both of them have blown off the muzzies, devil may care! They make me proud to be American.
Mosques, Islamic centers they are nothing more than terror hideouts in the US preparing for the soft tyranny of takeover one day.
To allow these moooslims to build them all over at will usually with overseas money is like allowing the nazis to build bases anywhere they choose. Its crazy.
>>I agree with Michael Savage that Islam is more a political and economic philosophy than a religion.
One could say that about any major religion. That was Nietzsche’s main argument against Christianity.
Stay the course Herman...people are beginning to appreciate your honest and direct approach.
I read it to me its specific to the proposed Murpheesboro mosque.seems the locals think the Mosque will do more than preach the muzzie gospel. It will be interesting to see how this all turns out.
If municipalities have the authority to approve/disapprove any other building, they have the same authority over a mosque. Let ‘em rent an empty big-box store.
My @$$!!!! Hermain Cain is showing the same common sense as our founding fathers - who knew the difference between strictly a religion and a poltical-sovereign-religion.
I wonder if Fotopoulos can tell us what happened to the "Church of England" in the 13 colonies after American independence?
You see, the "Church of England" included an oath of political allegiance to the King in their "religion" and their clergy were not only required to take that oath, but also required to lead the congregation in the same oath at all church services.
Our founding fathers would have none of that and the Church of England congregations that would not change their religion to reflect republican values (becoming the Episcopal Church) were forced to flee the country.
The Left is again showing their ignorancy or dishonesty.

Islam isn’t just a religion - it is many other things as well: political movement, terrorist organization, supporter of terrorists, quasi-military organization, legal system, economic system, etc., etc.
For these reasons Islam cannot be treated with the same respect and receive the same government protection as if it were solely a religious organization. To do so is to extend government protection to a terrorist organization whose goals are to commit genocide, overthrow the government and force citizens to live under the rules and laws of Islam.
Hear Allen West explain eloquently WHY Muslims are a danger to America in this short video;
We need a place for both Cain and this man in the new Republican administration in 2012.
