The 1st gives you the right to practice your religion not WHERE to practice your religion. Do you oppose zoning laws? Would you oppose putting a porn shop in a neighborhood next to an elementary school?

It would be a clear violation of the First Amendment to mandate that a religion be practiced only in places that its adherents find inconvenient. A law that required Jews in Michigan to build any synagogues in Kentucky would of course be un-Constitutional.

We have laws against having bars and liquor stores within certain distances of schools.   Of course, liquor does not have First Amendment protection. But religion does.

Church, temple, synagogue, mosque -- they are all equal under the law. If you disapprove of a mosque being next to a school, then you must oppose any religious building being next to any school. That implies, of course, that a Catholic Church could not have an abutting parochial school... do you agree?

Religious institutions get turned down for new construction all the time. How dare the localities deny their first amendment rights! The first amendment clearly states you have the right to worship, it doesn't guarantee you the right to have your place of worship wherever you want it. Using the argument that the left and Obama has used regarding this current issue if a porn shop is simply using their first amendment rights to freedom of the press, why do you want to suppress them?


So in terms of impact on a community, "mosque" = "porn shop".

Thank you States, for being so open in exposing this issue as just plain anti-Muslim bigotry from the right.

"We conservatives know not all Muslims in America are al-Queda sympathizers, buuuuttttt......."

Thanks for missing the point. Read above. Do you oppose zoning laws?

And as for Islam badger, I know enough about it to know I have a strong dislike for it, as for what other conservatives think about it I don't know nor hardly care.

Independant voters are not conservatives, as much as you want that to be true. They aren't going to care how the economy is fixed, just that Obama is focusing on it again. His numbers have been bad because he was focusing on health care for a year, rather than setting up new jobs and trying to fix the economy.

Guess you'll find out in a few weeks, huh?

(I tried using the quote button to respond to pbrower's post about how things will be different in 2012, blah blah blah, but I guess the post was too long, and it was a pain in the arse trying to type a response to it.....Huh)

Anyway....Things might be different in 2012, but I highly doubt it.  The economy shows absolutely no signs of improvement any time in the near future and I really don't see any way that it's going to make a sudden recovery in time for the election.  It may be *somewhat* better, but things will still be bad enough to cause problems for Obama.  And come 2012, he will no longer be able to blame everything on Bush.  That excuse will finally be put to rest as this will be seen, rightfully so, as Obama's economy (and also, Obama's wars, which will also plague him--warS because combat operations are NOT over in Iraq).  He will have to answer for all of it, rather than push the blame on somebody else.  I believe his approval ratings will be in the low 40s, or high 30s by November 2012.

Glad to see you can view things with a clear head Clay. kudos

Because, as we all know, FOX is an unbiased, completely trustworthy network.

Fox's polling outlet (which is done through other firms) is not at all unreasonable.

I'm sure they have a hand in how the numbers turn out.  They are a propaganda outlet not a news network. 

Get a clue.

Don't worry too much about it, Mr. Phips, it's just a way the hack extraordinaire justifies Obama's mediocre approval ratings.  There's nothing real behind it other than a default defense of everything Obama or Democratic.

So says someone whose avatar is a convicted criminal.
