Judson Phillips, founder of the for-profit corporation called Tea Party Nation, has some choice words regarding the idea of a mosque being built in New York City (link held behind subscription-only firewall):
Insult does not even begin to describe this farce. First, that New York would even allow the building of this Mosque boggles the mind. Second, that some people would defend this is absolutely outrageous.
You heard Judson Phillips: religious liberty in America is a farce, government should ban houses of worship, and any American who says otherwise is an outrage.
Is this the Tea Party you want to follow?
