US governor stands by mosque wiretapping comments

BOSTON, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, mulling a White House bid in 2008, on Thursday stood by his comments in favor of wiretapping mosques after religious leaders stepped up demands for him to take them back.

Civil rights groups and Muslim leaders have blasted the Republican governor since he raised the prospect on Sept. 14 of putting some Muslim students and their teachers under surveillance.

On Thursday, Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders delivered a petition to his office signed by 75 people from a dozen religious groups urging him to reconsider his views.

Romney refused, telling Reuters in an interview that attacks by Islamic terrorists in London and the United States justify stronger scrutiny by U.S. authorities on activity at mosques in America.

Hey Mitt you nitwit Timothy McVeigh the guy who blew up the Murrah Federal building was a Catholic. Should we put wires in Catholic churches too? You never know?

2. Only if we can wiretap churches
#1 because of abortion clinic bombings terrorist attacks. (Hey, if he can make broad generalizations, why can't I?!)

and #2, make sure they're not doing any campaigning or political stuff. I bet a lot of churches would lose their tax exempt status if we showed exactly what they do there.
