Soooo... we are using American tax dollars to pay for work being done on mosques around the world through our "U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP)."

U.S. government funds mosque renovation and rehabilitation around the world

While much attention has been focused on questions surrounding the Ground Zero mosque and the appropriateness of the State Department funding Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s trip to the Middle East, little attention has been given to the fact that U.S. taxpayer money is funding mosque development around the world.

Just a cursory search of the term “mosque” on the State Department’s list of “projects” reveals 26 examples of federal funds going to fund construction, renovation, and rehabilitation of various mosques abroad. The benefiting countries include Bulgaria, Pakistan, Mali, Tunisia, Afghanistan, Benin, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Albania, Egypt, Tunisia, the Maldives, Yemen, Turkmenistan, Tanzania, Uganda, Azerbaijan, Sudan, Serbia and Montenegro.....

I can't help but wonder what the MSM would be saying if we were using American tax dollars to help restore... say... the Sistine Chapel in Rome? Or what the ACLU would be saying? Or what the progressives in our government would be saying?

Have you ever heard a sonic boom... or a Richter 10 earthquake... or a category 5 hurricane?

That would be close.

What happen to the so-called seperation from Church and State? Oh yea, that only applies to Christian issues. So all the other heathen religions can get all the federal funding they can get. Hmm, sounds like HYPOCRASY to me!

And weakness demonstrated in efforts at appeasement.
