For example, President Obama said in an address:
Muslims “have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country. That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in Lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances. This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable.” – August 13, 2010
The next day, he was questioned by a reporter and answered:
"I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making a decision to put a mosque there." – August 14, 2010
Some people don't seem to get it yet, that Obama is an expert on Constitutional Law, and his comment was about religious freedom recognized in the "Bill of Rights" which is a part of our Constitution. Some people may not like it, but religious rights apply to everybody and everybody's belief. If a Baptist shoots somebody, the person is tried for the offense, not for being a Baptist.
I believe the President has, not only a right, but an obligation to comment on the Constitution.
Some people say that they wish Obama would keep his mouth shut. Then when he refrains from comment, they expect him to comment further for his not commenting.
