ACCORDING TO A STATEMENT released by the Republican National Committee, the GOP will not object to the construction of the controversial Ground Zero Mosque as long as the temple itself doesn’t depict “Islamic bullshit”.
“We’re all for religion freedom here, but the way I see it Islam needn’t be represented in this particular mosque”, said senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) in Manhattan after meeting with religious leaders. Hatch voiced the opinion of many Republican conservatives seeking to soften their positions on the eve of the midterm elections.
“The mosque in lower Manhattan, and across America for that matter, should not be used as an excuse to worship Allah and to recite verses from the Quran”, said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. “American people would be more reassured if all those prayers reflected our country’s Judeo Christian heritage, and were overseen by a pastor”.
“I’d be willing to say that Islam is okay as long as it played down the Quran a bit and opened its heart to Jesus”, said Senator Hatch. “Why can’t we just have a good Christian mosque?”
