Governor Rick Perry is Fine with Building a Mosque on the Ground Zero 9/11 site

from NPR interview, you can hear the podcast- Go listen

Perry was asked if he was comfortable with the way that some people talk about the problem with terrorism — their concern to say that the real problem is “Muslims" or "Muslim countries."

"The radicalization of Islam is a great concern," Perry said. "Islam of and by itself is one of the great religions, along with Christianity and Judaism." He recalled meeting one of the Democratic candidates for Texas governor in the recent election. "He’s a Palestinian. And he and I were having a conversation about Ground Zero. How do you deal with this? He said, well, it’s pretty easy. He said, 'Build a synagogue, a temple, and a church there.  And bring these people together.'"

I do think Rick Perry is a bigot or, at the very least, a panderer. His The Response was not for all religions but only for a cult subset. But I do have to give him props for helping lay the cornerstone of the mosque in Plano for the Ismaili muslims and also for agreeing with the diversity of putting a mosque at Ground Zero. Now, at the same time, I don't think ANY religious church, mosque, temple, etc belongs at Ground Zero because of separation of church and state, which Perry apparently does not agree with. But I do like the general sentiment.

P.S. Incidentally, the Democratic candidate Rick Perry is talking about it Farouk Shami

P.P.S. The tenth anniversay of September 11th is coming up. Anyone want to ask Rick Perry if he still believes putting a mosque at Ground Zero is a good idea?

Pastor Jeffress today (Oct 7 2011) of First Baptist Church today endorsed Rick Perry. Robert Jeffress is against building a mosque at Ground Zero and thinks Islam is evil - So he's okay with Perry's stance? .
