Posted on 08/08/2010 6:02:22 AM PDT by tobyhill
Mayor Bloomberg wont stop talking about the mosque near Ground Zero, harshly attacking opponents yesterday who ought to be ashamed of themselves.
Sounding more supportive of freedom of religion than freedom of speech, Bloomberg said, "I just don't think the government should tell people where they can pray and where they can build houses of worship.
"It is a shame that we even have to talk about this," the mayor added on his WOR radio broadcast.
The mayor ratcheted up his rhetoric against critics just days after defending the mosque in an impassioned speech on Governors Island, with the Statue of Liberty as a backdrop.
Yesterday, Bloomberg said cops and firefighters who died on 9/11 didn't ask people in the World Trade Center, "Where do you pray?" as they tried to save their lives.
"Most of the [9/11 rescuers'] families that I've talked to, they say, 'Of course our loved ones gave their lives to protect the very freedoms that we're talking about here -- people being able to practice religion and say what they want to say and be in control of their own destiny,' " the mayor said.

Typical out of touch filthy rich-guy Yankee bump. What is he today? An ‘R’, ‘I’ or ‘D’? I can’t keep up.
The people of NY need to rise up and throw this anti - American bum out.
They need to chain themselves to the site if need be, have Bloomberg attempt to arrest the families of 911 victims if need be. Would the NYC cops do that?
Time for a SHOWDOWN!
He’s a C (not Conservative)
But I can’t say what C stands for. :)
Does anyone know if there is a recall provision in the NYC mayoral laws?
Hopefully his last term as Mayor and with any luck when he leaves office he will dry up and blow away.
and the 2nd amendment is non existent.
Bloomberg you are one elitist, crony capitalist, POS little nebish of a turd....
“I just don’t think the government should tell people where they can pray and where they can build houses of worship. “It is a shame that we even have to talk about this,”
.... but like all other mayors, they are quick to tell you where, and in what you can live, call your home
But the whole pro-Mosque movement, Bloomberg, Cuomo, Manhattan Boro President Stringer are SO hateful of anyone who opposes the mosque.
It is almost unprecedent the venom the pro-mosque side has for the anti-mosque crowd.
Is there any chance that maybe Mike and other public officials have been told:
NO Mosque, more attacks on NYC.
Is the government maybe being blackmailed? Just a crazy thought I’ve had.
If one considers the cult of islam to be a religion, he has a point. But no one in their right mind considers islam to be anything other than a murdering cult. This cult hands out death for improper behavior, leaving the cult, or even if one refuses to join the cult. The koranimals are all nuts. They are incompatible with the 21st century.
This woman may know more about Islam than the Mayor!
Le Roi Bloomberg tires of this peasant dissent. Enough Already - or off with your heads!
Feel sorry for those from New York who did not vote for this arrogant a-hole.
For those who voted for your mayor, next time look beyond the end of your nose when voting.
Now suffer with this arrogant moron who also cares for America as much as his buddy, mac daddy “The Liar In-Chief”.
There. Fixed it!
Can Rudy run again?
Bloomie must have a personal financial interest in this.
It certainly isn’t the view of most people.
