The Imam has NO authority, he is the person who is selected to lead the prayers, nothing more. The Imam will often be the person who can recite the Quran the best, hence they have some prestige within communities with regard to their status but no authority on the religion or teachings of Islam.

If the tea party does vote for this guy, then they are displaying their hypocrisy, as this idea of giving Muslims a religious test is unconstitutional, and since they claim to be constitutionalists, to vote for such a flagrant violation of it, is hypocrisy.

It just goes to show you the degree of the sincerity of these people.

And BTW racists often are glad to vote in the classical Uncle Tom like this guy, as they so much love the chief of the Uncle Toms, Clarence Thomas.

This guy just shows us that there are degrees of low down dirty dogs, because as bad as Obama is, and he is a low down dirty dog politician, he is a saint compared to clowns like Cain, who would sell his soul to please the white master.

This is a joke right?

Are we suppose to believe that a person whom stated that they will do a loyalty test on Muslim appointees only would appoint a Muslim in the first place? This is sort of like white supremacy groups promising to do loyalty tests on all black members.

I wish you'd stop posting racist hate here. Not all blacks are welfare socialist left wing democrats, and to automatically call a conservative black man an uncle Tom is offensive and racist.

I just remembered, the next republican debate is Monday. I wonder if the candidates will be asked if they support something like what Cain said?

The Imam is seen in the same exact way a Catholic Cardinal is, of no political or Gov't authourity they have authourity in the faith whereas they can set and cancel policy of the faith. The Imam is seen as a person of authourity of those who practice Islam and is seen as an official agent of The Govt Of The Divine, The Holy Family and God.

It sounds to me as if he is just scoring some cheap popularity points by stirring up some anti-Muslim sentiment which will go down well with many of the knee-jerk, ignorant voters.

I think you hit the nail on the head here friend.

I don't think Cain has a snowball's chance in the primary but I do think he is uniquely qualified to do a lot of damage to the President and the whole left-wing detachment from reality. Mitt can't go out there and say whatever he wants without the typical lefty response, but the typical lefty response to Cain shows the left's inherent racism as already noted here by our "friend" infowhatever above...
