Not again. Herman Cain is back on his anti-Muslim campaign. Several months ago he said he was not comfortable with the idea of appointing Muslims to his cabinet.

Now he says that Americans have the right to ban mosques from their communities, according to the Huffington Post.

"Our Constitution guarantees the separation of church and state," Cain said in an interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. "Islam combines church and state," he said in the interview. "They're using the church part of our First Amendment to infuse their morals in that community, and the people of that community do not like it. They disagree with it."


The president of the United States of America represents all people. It seems as if the pizza mogul could find another way to differentiate himself in the GOP field rather than attacking an entire religion. No mosques? No mas, Herman Cain.
