Freedom is not arbitrary. It doesn’t change according to the situation, according to what you think is right. Freedom, our rights, stay the same. They can’t be taken away and they can’t be “voted” away. Thus, the reason why President Obama had to speak out in favor of the Mosque being built in Manhattan, a Mosque a few blocks from “Ground Zero”.
“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. 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,” Obama said.
He didn’t have to do this. A poll floating around states that most people disapprove of a Mosque near “Ground Zero”. These are the same people who pay using exact change, change lanes without using their blinkers, and think there is no such thing as Climate Change. Most people are stupid. You, Mr. President, are not. You are brave. Thank you for stinking up for our rights.
