Some Baptists in Mecca

The president's approval numbers continue to tank and what happened this weekend certainly did not help.
The president was having a Ramadan dinner with Muslims in the White House, and said he defends Muslim's right to build an Islamic center near Ground Zero in New York City , which will include a prayer space, on the grounds of religious freedom.
After all hell broke loose Saturday, the president crawfished and said he was not commenting on the wisdom of building an Islamic center two blocks from the site of the September 11 attacks, where thousands of Americans were killed by Islamic terrorists.
All this to make sure Muslims have religious freedom.
Okay...they are supposed to have a -prayer room in their center.
While they are at it, why don't they have a prayer room for fundamentalist Christians.
And while I'm at it, how many churches and synagogs are there in Saudi Arabia?
I'm sure they'd be happy to oblige us there.
Maybe in Mecca they'd be happy with a Southern Baptist welcome center.
I mean...in this time of tolerance and understanding, I am sure the president will push for that.
The most insulting thing about this is the name for the center, The Cordoba Center.
It refers to Cordoba, Spain, the capital of Muslim conquerors who symbolized their victory over the Christian Spaniards by transforming a church there into the world's third-largest mosque complex.
In the name of political correctness, we are worried about everyone's right except ours.
