TX Senator Cornyn On Mosque: “This Is Not About Freedom Of Religion”

Texas Senator John Cornyn says building an Islamic center near Ground Zero is “not about freedom of religion.”  However, speaking on Fox News Sunday, Cornyn failed to say just what it is about.

“It demonstrates that Washington, the White House, the administration, the president himself, seems to be disconnected from the mainstream of America,” John Cornyn (Texas), said on Fox News Sunday. “I think that’s one of the reasons why people are so frustrated.

“This is not about freedom of religion,” Cornyn said. “I do think it’s unwise to build a mosque in the site where 3,000 Americans lost their lives as the result of a terrorist attack.”

Voters “sense that they’re being lectured to, not listened to” by Democrats, he said. “The American people will render their verdict.”

It’s also not about what voters think, or majority rule. It’s about constitutional protections. It’s about what is right, not about what is popular.
