Fischer: "We Ought to be Done with the Building of Mosques in the United States of America"

Yesterday we noted that the AFA's Bryan Fischer was demanding the end to the construction of all mosques on the grounds that "each Islamic mosque is dedicated to the overthrow of the American government."

He made the same case on his radio program, at first talking about the "Ground Zero Mosque," but then issuing a call for a blanket ban on the construction of any new mosques anywhere in the country:

I have said this thing should not be built. I have appealed to every construction firm in the city of New York not to take a dime of tainted money to build this thing. It's going to be a memorial to the Muslim martyrs. It's going to be a memorial to the conquest of Allah and Islam on 9/11. That's what this whole thing is about. And even worse, I believe, it's going to be a terrorist training center. It's going to be a center for the inculcation of jihadist ideas.

Permits, in my judgment, should not be granted to build even one more mosque in the United States of America. Not one! We ought to be done with the building of mosques in the United States of America. I'm not saying go out and tear down the ones that are there. I'm saying we should not issue building permits for a single additional mosque in the United States of America.

I particularly like how Fischer makes clear that he's not calling for the destruction of existing mosques, because that would be going too far.  So you can see how reasonable he is.
