Donald Trump, the billionaire real estate mogul from New York, is still running at the head of the pack of candidates seeking the Republican nomination for the presidency. His message from the time he announced his candidacy has been one of anger and hate, yet somehow a significant number of people have lapped it up.

Trump’s latest, and arguably most outrageous statement so far came just this week when he said that he would consider closing some mosques and monitoring the rest. It’s obvious that he’s trying to stay at the front of the fear mongering that all of the candidates must take part in as they grasp and claw for the most air time. Still, it’s astounding to me that a candidate for the highest office can not only suggest that it’s okay to crush religious freedom because he’s got a gut feeling there might be something bad going on in churches, but also that his suggestion might be worth discussing on news programs that purport to be the best in the nation.
