Puh-leese. As noted by Doctor Zero,
This is not a First Amendment issue...At any rate, denying permission to build a single structure is not equivalent to suppressing the free exercise of religion.Even if that denial is based solely on the religious nature of the building. You see, what you are all forgetting is that the First Amendment is for Real Americans ONLY. In fact, Obama's support for allowing Muslims the free exercise of religion is, in fact a deadly assault upon the First Amendment.
IF they had only just waited for one of the Escha-minions to explain it to them.
