Religious Freedom By Popular Vote

Polls from Fox News and CNN indicate that around 60% to 70% of Americans disapprove of an Islamic community center being built in New York, blocks from Ground Zero.  A followup Gallup poll, though, shows 65% of Americans have only heard a fair amount, a little, or nothing at all about the issue.

Either way, I find it disturbing. The majority of Americans either think their petty sense of emotional outrage is more valuable than an unambiguous right of religious freedom, or they are opinionated on an issue they are not completely familiar with. The media has gleefully fanned the flames without clarifying the facts.

Yes,” I hear the critics of the Islamic community center say, “we all have religious freedom.”

But,” they add, “you should be polite enough not to use it when it offends us.”

Did America Dodge A Bullet On Election Day?

Maverick! Real America. Hockey Mom. Joe Six-Pack. Joe The Plumber. Executive Experience. Faith. Palling Around With Terrorists. Socialism. Number One Liberal. Sarah “Plain” Palin’s ignoble campaign can be summed up in a few catchy words. I’m just glad she won’t get the chance to speak any of them from the Oval Office. She probably would not have brought on the end of the world, but she would have destroyed my spirit. You Betcha!

p.s.

A Fox News reporter on the Bill O’Reilly Show says Sarah Palin didn’t know Africa was a continent. But there’s no corroboration. Maybe she is that ignorant, but I think many Republicans want to shift all the blame for losing the White House over to her.
