CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll: 70% oppose ground zero mosque

Sunday, August 15, 2010

The American people are overwhelmingly opposed to building the ground zero mosque. As usual, Obama is out of touch with what real Americans want.
A proposed mosque to be built two blocks from the World Trade Center has little support nationwide, a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll suggests. According to the new survey out Wednesday, nearly 70 percent of all Americans oppose the controversial plan to build the mosque just blocks away from the solemn site in lower Manhattan while just 29 percent favor the construction.
Proponents of the mosque like to talk about religious tolerance, but if that is the case, where is the outrage about the lack of religious tolerance in Muslim countries? There already are over 100 mosques in New York City. Yet there are no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia, and Christians and Jews are not even allowed to enter Mecca. And they lecture us about tolerance?

I'll tell you what. The day that they allow a Christian church to be built in Mecca is the day that I will change my position and support the building of the ground zero mosque.
