Herman Cain Says U.S. Communities 'Have the Right' to Ban Mosques

At Fox News:
Presidential candidate Herman Cain on Sunday defended his opposition to a new mosque in Tennessee, expressing concern about Shariah law and declaring Americans "have the right" to ban mosques in their communities.

Cain, who stirred controversy this year by saying he would be uncomfortable appointing a Muslim to his Cabinet if elected, first expressed concern Thursday about the controversial mosque in Murfreesboro, Tenn. That mosque has been the subject of demonstrations and legal challenges in the wake of the controversy over the so-called "Ground Zero mosque" in New York City.

Speaking on "Fox News Sunday," Cain said he came out against the Tennessee mosque after talking to members of that community. He said the site is "hallowed ground" to Murfreesboro residents and that they're concerned about "the intentions of trying to get Shariah law" -- the code governing conduct in Islamic societies.
"It's not just a mosque for religious purposes. This is what the people are objecting to," he said.

And at Atlas Shrugs, "Herman Cain gets it. He will be slammed by the leftist/Islamic machine as they continue to enforce Islamic blasphemy laws, bulldoze the American people and bulldoze individual rights."

Very interesting indeed. It would be quite interesting to see if this man ever gets any traction in the race of the Oval Office. I would certainly have to consider casting my ballot for him.
What would those do who disagree with him? Would they be so quick to holler "racism" for public disagreement with Mr Cain as they do when people disagree with President Obama? Could supporters of MR. Cain turn the tables on those folk and say they are being "racist when they disagree with him?"
