First Amendment Right Only Important to POTUS When It Suits His Agenda


by Jayne D. Frank

As explosive as the planned NYC Mosque near Ground Zero, the proposed “Burn a Quran Day” by Pastor Terry Jones has exacerbated the already tense relations between American Muslims and Christians.  However, although I believe Pastor Jones’ act to be an incredibly stupid and harmful act in view of the fact that we have our precious American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, there remains a crucial question of America defending and protecting its First Amendment Rights, no matter how distasteful this proposed act may be.  If we start allowing just a few First Amendment Rights to exist, here and there, and disallow those that may “offend,” soon we will be a Country without free speech at all.

However, the purpose of writing this blog piece is to bring to light the despicable way in which our President decides who to “call out” for acts which he thinks are offensive. This week, he called for Pastor Jones to call off his 9/11 Quran burning after intensive pleas and phone calls from officials in Indonesia, perhaps using this as a false excuse of why he is really offended.

My one question is:  Where was President Obama’s condemnation of  the photo and act of Bill Ayres trampling on the American Flag in 2001?
