Banning Churches?

Herman Cain (

Republican Presidential hopeful, Herman Cain came out Sunday in support of communities being able to ban the construction of mosques.  Cain is a former executive of Coca-Cola, Pillsbury, and Burger King.

Here is the Yahoo story.

  1. From an atheists point of view, there should be no ban on centers of religious expression. Furthermore, the government should not support communities that prescribe to such prohibitions. Citizens, and residents of this country, must follow the intent of the original guidelines of the Constitution. In fact, “prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” is clearly stated in the first amendment.

    Herman Cain’s support can also be construed as borderline hate speech which is ironic since he claims “his position did not conflict with the prejudice he may have experienced growing up in the United States in 1950s and 1960s.”

    Cain uses the words “may have experienced.” The distinct problem with this statement is that Herman Cain does not know if he was discriminated against, and since he does not clearly know, then how can he know the full extent of prejudice?

    We should view this for what he really is. A bigoted candidate that has no shot on achieving the highest position in American government.

  2. I’m for banning Burger Kings because fast food kills way more people than the billion Muslims of all nations.

  3. I’m a believer in the Home of the Free philosophy. Isn’t that what America is all about?
