I didn't get that from Obama. He seemed to speak only to this guys legal rights and to the importance of maintaining freedom of religion.
As for this guys motives. I get the feeling that I'm missing something. Can you give me a link or something telling me how we know he is pulling a nanny nanny boo boo on us?
I'm still looking for what you asked for, but I did find this...
But some 9/11 victims' families say the issue isn't tolerance.
"I don't like it," said Evelyn Pettigano, who lost a sister in the attacks, during a phone interview on Thursday. "I'm not prejudiced. ... It's too close to the area where our family members were murdered."
"I lost my brother, Sean. He was a fireman," Rosaleen Tallon said.
"As an American I am so proud of our freedom of religion, but I also think we have to be historically sensitive to what happened in that area," Tallon said.
Tallon wants to teach her son, Paddy, to be tolerant of other religions. But she wonders if other religions, like Islam, are teaching their children to be tolerant of hers. There are other places in the city, she said, for another mosque.
"I don't think that they would build a German cultural center right near Auschwitz. Just because you're looking at what happened to the people that died there. That's all that should be focused on," Tallon said.
