    So what? Not even liberals are claiming that individuals, including politicians, can't attend religious services.

    I can guarantee that if she had gone to a new Church sporting a bible in-hand, or worse yet (gasp) a plaque of the 10-commandments - they'd be all over it..

    She went on official business as the Governor, not as a citizen attending a church service.

    then one would think she could attend a mosque in Saudi Arabia wearing a mini-skirt...if she respected their customs in our country...well fair play would be that the Saudis would respect our customs in their country...don't ya think...after all they are a peaceful and considerate nation and religion! :huh:

    Again, so what? If the President goes to a baseball game, it's not necessarily an endorsement of either team or baseball. I suppose no politicians have ever been present at the opening of a new Christian church?

    Baseball isn't an established religion....

    It's not so much that she went, it's the fact she "endorsed them" by wearing a head scarf...

    She's not Muslim and she went there and put on Islamic garb to satiate their desires. Is akin to endorsing the religion as far as I am concerned. Even Gore didn't bow to Buddah when he was illegally taking contributions from the temple in LA.

    There is a fine line and she crossed it. She could have gone without taking on their rituals. She is the governor. I could understand if she were Muslim.

    C'mon, if this weren't a Mosque, you would be all over this like white on rice.

    The reason nobody is in an uproar about this?

    She's not Republican.
