Herman Cain, you are confusing me!!!!
This repost of an article by Brian Fisher, RightSide News, says it all…

It looks like Herman Cain’s handlers have gotten to him again. Just when we thought he’d found his voice once more on the threat that Islam poses to the West, he issued a “humble and contrite” apology on Wednesday for any offense he may have caused Muslims. Herman says he stands by his previous statements, but if so, what is he apologizing for? I love Herman Cain, but he’s confusing me here.
A recent and extensive survey revealed that 94.7% of all Muslims who attend mosque on a weekly basis in America attend a mosque which distributes literature advocating the use of violence to advance Islam in the United States and around the world.
Cain had said that any community which does not want a jihadist-spouting mosque in its community shouldn’t be forced to have one.
And of course, he was right about that, and it’s unfortunate that he has retracted the statement. His bobbing and weaving on Islam is leaving his supporters a bit dazed and is hurting his candidacy.
Yesterday’s thwarted Muslim attack on Ft. Hood is just another indication that Islam is not a benign, equally valid alternative to classic Christianity. Any community that wants to keep out an ideology which commands its followers to commit acts of violence against American infidels ought to be able to do so.
(By the way, the arrested soldier, PFC Nasser Abdo, told Al-Jazeera that no Muslim should serve in the US military, the very thing I’ve been saying since Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan shot up 14 infidels at Ft. Hood in November of 2009. Muslims are now making my case for me.)
And remember, Muslims believe that every single word of the Qur’an was dictated by Allah himself. So when the Qur’an says, “Slay the idolaters wherever you find them” (Sura 9:5), that is the voice of God speaking.
The more devout a Muslim gets, the more likely he is either to act on that verse or support others who do. Islam is a lethal, toxic, totalitarian ideology that is hostile to every Western value we cherish – freedom of religion, freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, equal rights for all. None have a place in Islamic thought and practice.
This means, by the way, that no Muslim can take the oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution with a clear conscience. Since his religion and its sharia law, given by Allah himself, teaches him that none of the rights guaranteed in the Constitution are valid (there is no freedom of religion in sharia, for instance – you leave Islam, you die), he either must lie or betray his religion to take the oath.
Out of simple compassion, we should not put anyone in a place where he has to choose between his God and his country to hold public office.
