    The State Department is sending millions of dollars to save mosques overseas.
    Seriously, I could not make this shit up............
    Think of it as a Taxpayer funded "This Old Mosque"

    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.

    The U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP) — which is putting millions toward “heritage preservation” projects in the developing world — financed mosque-related projects in all the aforementioned countries.

    un-fucking-believable *shakes head*

    If this is true, I hope someone sends this info to Romney so he can make sure the entire country knows about it and so he can verbally beat Obama to a pulp.

    America in debt up to it's eyeballs and our Shithead in Chief is sending money overseas to spruce up mosques.

    Sounds like state support for religion to me.
    So much for the "wall of separation".

    Lifecycle cost of single f-22: $469 million.

    Seems like a good financial judgment to me.

    Democrats have a peculiar approach to religion. At their convention, the atheists shouted down the Christian minister's proposal, but the chairman claimed by prearrangement, I'm sure, the motion carried against the louder shouts.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTlC0brgGUI]Dems Deny Christ 3 Times - Before Barack Crowed - YouTube[/ame]

    The Obama Democrat anti-religion crowd belies the chair of obfuscations to appease the American public until they can tear up the founders' religion, arguments, cause for anti-federalist government, and ultimately, their prize goal: tear up the US Constitution in favor of submission-only citizen response.

    I may be in a small minority among liberals, but I think this is BS. I think we should end all but humanitarian aid to foreign countries. Patching up mosques isn't going to change anybody's perceptions of the USA. To the extent it is possible while still maintaining diplomatic ties with countries, we should GTFO of the middle east.

    We give humanitarian aid anyway! So what's worse, the fact that they are giving money to refurbish mosques and you guys know about it or giving aid which could be used to refurbish mosques anyway but you don't know about it? You guys act like every Muslim in the world harmed the U.S embassy and suddenly you guys have a problem with gestures of goodwill? If you guys call yourselves Christians or Jewish or whatever you ought to be ashamed of yourselves.
