As plans continue for a Mosque in lower Manhattan, near Ground Zero, Sarah Palin has now entered the debate. Not sure why she feels she has a right to comment on the events in a city thousands of miles away from her home when she can't even offer correct information regarding Alaska, although she served as governor of the state (for a laughable two years).

I am not sure exactly where I stand on the issue, but I think that I would have to side with the constitutional right to freedom of religion. Too many of our freedoms were taken away to fight terrorism and I think it's time we went back to honoring our constitution. What would be fitting is for other houses of worship to be constructed near the site for those faiths not already represented in the area.
