    Presidential candidate Herman Cain on Sunday defended his opposition to a new mosque in Tennessee, expressing concern about Shariah law and declaring Americans "have the right" to ban mosques in their communities.

    Cain, who stirred controversy this year by saying he would be uncomfortable appointing a Muslim to his Cabinet if elected, first expressed concern Thursday about the controversial mosque in Murfreesboro, Tenn. That mosque has been the subject of demonstrations and legal challenges in the wake of the controversy over the so-called "Ground Zero mosque" in New York City.

    May the FORCE be with you!

    No, they really don't. If a "community" can ban one house or type of worship then another community could ban some other religion.

    I'm really surprised that Cain said this.
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

    You chase them all back to sand land and than the Marshall comes out and says, Y'all oughta be ashamed.
    Everybody hangs their heads and go home, but the bad guys are gone.
    I've seen it in westerns!
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Well, there is that. I just wouldn't want Scientologists to ban Baptist Churches.

    Methodists, ......not so much. :p:D

    I think you have fallen for the much promoted idea that Islam is "just another religion". I don't buy it. There is something wrong within the Muslim religion.

    No, I think it is a bad religion. Same with Scientology. I just believe that bad religion is protected by the first amendment.

    Scientology doesn't have a built in form of government and rule a quarter of the earth.

    Part of the problem is that on one hand the U.S. Government is not allowed to pick a religion for you, but on the other hand treats churches - all churches, I think - with sort of an 'endangered species' status. Burn a church and all hell falls on you.

    The U.S. government is constrained, but I believe the local - and Cain is talking about cities here - governments should not be so constrained. So my town should be allowed to ban just about anything; Mosques, pit bulls, smoking indoors, selling liquor on Sunday, etc., and your town should be able to do just about whatever it likes within the limits of The Constitution such as described in various civil rights legislation.
