Where's the ACLU when you need them? Nowhere to be found. If the following story was about funding Christian churches instead of Islamic mosques, there would be a huge outcry. But, since it's the "pet religion" of the left, Islam, the ACLU yawns.
Read from Gateway Pundit:
US TAXPAYERS ARE FUNDING MOSQUE CONSTRUCTION
"What ever happened to the separation of church and state the left has been screaming about?
The US government has been funding mosque construction.
But won’t allow the 10 Commandments in a court house.
The American Thinker reported:
'Truth, even in the tightly controlled prison of the Obama media complex, occasionally bursts forth like a swordfish cavorting on the waves of a golden August afternoon.
Newsweek, the Washington Post’s former progressive stepchild, published an op-ed by Fareed Zakaria, the in-house lapdog for the Administration, extolling the virtues of building the Ground Zero Mosque. A couple of sentences demand a great deal more explanation.
"To that end, early in its tenure the Bush administration began a serious effort to seek out and support moderate Islam. Since then, Washington has funded mosques, schools, institutes, and community centers that are trying to modernize Islam around the world.
We should be encouraging groups like the one behind this project, not demonizing them. Were this mosque being built in a foreign city, chances are that the U.S. government would be funding it."'"
Just what we can afford in our current economic crisis. We are our own worst enemy."
