As if you needed more evidence that Herman Cain doesn’t belong in office

Naturally, his candidacy is no more serious than Sarah Palin’s nomination for a Rhodes Scholarship, but this guy is a constitutional train wreck.

He claims that any community has a right to ban a mosque in their community. Fuck the First Amendment, Boo Boo!

No, Herman, No. No you can’t. While I personally would like to see mosques, synagogues, and churches all banned from every community as a blight causing adverse secondary effects, I accept that the First Amendment stands in the way of that. Herman isn’t bright enough to know that.

    OK, so his argument is: building a mosque equals creating & supporting a set of religious laws. So, a ban on the mosque is not religious discrimination, it is simply the banning of laws based in religion. However, every Bible-thumper out there loves to tell us all how this is a christian nation and that our laws are firmly based in judeo-christian law (see, e.g., Alabama Supreme Court building). Therefore, using old HC’s argument here, you CAN, in fact, also ban all churches and synagogues from every community. Maybe an obscenity argument would work here. Can’t define it but it know when I see it.
