According to Huffington Post,
reactionary nutjob Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain told reporters at a Murfreesboro rally yesterday that he opposes the construction of a Murfreesboro mosque that has been at the center of controversy for almost a year now. From Cain's remarks to reporters:
It is an infringement and an abuse of our freedom of religion. ... And I don't agree with what's happening, because this isn't an innocent mosque. ... It is another example of why I believe in American laws and American courts. This is just another way to try to gradually sneak Shariah law into our laws, and I absolutely object to that.It is an infringement and an abuse of our freedom of religion? Does he really not see the irony of that remark? Or has he just adopted the revered Tea Party tradition of attempting to use the fallacy of your argument as a strength? Is it just an attempt to push past Michele Bachmann as the candidate with the "choot-spa" to protect Christian America from the imminent threat of Sharia law? Or just a vain ploy to get airtime on The Daily Show ?
