"It seems incomprehensible to me that in this great country of ours, which tolerates all religions and especially atheism, that anyone could object to the construction of a massive 15-story mosque near the Ground Zero crater. Or, as the Associated Press refers to it, 'Manhattan's Friendliest Sharia-Compliant Mosque'," the Speaker opined.
"For this reason, I have asked Attorney General Holder to launch an investigation of all opponents of this mosque, including the 9/11 families. I have also requested that the Internal Revenue Service and the newly-formed Federal Bureau of Health Care Investigations research the funding behind this insidious organization that does not demonstrate the religious tolerance of all things Islamic."
After the Speaker's press conference, other House Democrats also expressed interest in investigating the funding sources of pro-life groups, talk show hosts and long-haul truck drivers.
