    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!

    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.

    For a while now we have allowed anything which describes itself as a religion to be protected under the First Amendment. Several countries with freedom of religion also have cult laws and designate Scientology and sometimes LDS as cults along with Sun Myung Moon's church, and some others. You can't simply wrap everything in religion and claim it is protected. I also think that the way a religion has manifested itself in the countries where it is the majority identity can be evidence of undesirable effect.

    We do ban some religious practices in this country, despite our promotion of toleration of all religions. If you start putting brass rings on the neck of a little girl, you're going to meet the folks from child services. If you nail yourself to a cross, you are going to be Baker acted. I'm not sure if it's illegal to dance with a dead body, but it probably is.

    The Constitution was for a law abiding people. It is not a suicide pact. It was never intended to permit the enemy to move to the US and operate from behind the lines.
