State Dept. Using Taxpayer Dollars to Refurbish Mosques in the Middle East

  • undunder

    What about the so called separation of church and state? Or is that interpreted to mean separation is only required if the religion is Christian? Obama and his merry band of dipsticks. Go figure

    • Doc

      It’s the freedom OF religion not the freedom from religion. That means you are free to worship or not as you see fit. Does NOT give you the right to tell someone else they cant.

      • seaofteamerican

        Hey Doc we’re not even discussing that we are talking about our hard earned taxpayer dollars going to a third world country instead of I don’t know maybe the our people affected by Sandy hmmm!

  • http://www.facebook.com/lauralee.hensley Lauralee Hensley

    So I guess, no separation of Church and State when it comes to that religion. Wonder Why? Could it be because Obama considers it the chosen religion of his?

    • Combat Veteran Seabee

      Separation of church and state is a myth. It is nowhere in our Constitution, nor the Bill of Rights. This principle evolved from a letter from Thomas Jefferson to the King of England trying to inform him that if the power of his postion as the leader of the church didn’t relent on it positions, the church as known, would collapse.

      • JB

        so you’re saying this is an OK expenditure???

        • rulken

          No it’s never going to be viewed as, “permissible”, unless of course your a Marxist/Communist, like Obama is.

      • ObamaFooledYou

        It is not exactly a myth, it is the principle that is important.

        Government should not force a ‘religion’ or show favoritism on any. Be it Christianity or Islam.

        Similarly, tax dollars will not be permitted to use like that.

          • James Maxwell

            Don’t forget we have a “Closet” muslim in the white house pretending to actuall care about our naiton while he is doing all he can to support the muslim brotherhood overseas and here at home also.

        • wizard

          All the restrictions are placed on government. There are nor restictions against religion petitioning, lobbying or attempting to influence government. Religions have all the same rights under the Constitution and the “Bill of Rights” as any one else.

    • rulken

      Oh yes, that is exactly why. Anyone that can’t see, that Obama is a Marxist/Communist Muslim is blind!

    • a

      We need to STOP paying taxes if this is what they are being used for. Do we get money back with 60% interest. Their only interest is blowing up us infidels here in the USA. Who’s f’ing idea is or was this (obamy)? Let’s build bombs instead. Then we can give it to them so they can kill the infidels. This government is going down hill FAST!!!! Especially with obamy

    • Gloria

      You got it!! This has been going on for a since obama first got elected. He’s a Muslim and is doing everything for them. The hell with the American people. I wouldn’t be surprised if the money he took from medicare went to that same program. He is an evil thing. I can’t even bring myself to call him a man.

    • HadEnuf

      What part don’t you understand? Duh, he’s a Muslim-Marxist jihadist – wake up!

    • Washington

      Its a bloody crime that obama got elected using voter fraud and a bunch of dead beats who would sell this country down the sewer just so they could continue getting entitlements. If congress won’t take over and prevent this camel lover muslim from destroying this country, the only way will be for the responsible people and ex military personnel to arrest him and all the corrupt traitors that don’t care about serving but stealing.

  • jimdandi

    What a bunch of phony hypocrites. (Guess that’s a redundancy) Where are the brain and morals of these bureaucrats? Where is their adherence to our Constitution? Are you a Christian? Take a hike. Are you a Muslim? What can we do for you today? Rebuild your mosque? No problem. Maybe you won’t chop our head off if we help you. Good luck with that idea.

    How about refurbishing Detroit??

    • beebee

      That would be a huge waste of taxpayer money. Just burn the place down and sell the land to people who want to build and live there, with no government “aid”. People who can afford to and want to buy property and build on it would be the ones to foot the expense. Then the only problem would be keeping the muslims and gangsta’s out! No government money involved. I know, I’m dreaming……….

  • Doc

    There is no separation of church and state, It’s the freedom OF religion not the freedom from religion. That means
    you are free to worship or not as you see fit. Does NOT give you the
    right to tell someone else they can’t.

    • beebee

      But it does seem lately that atheists believe they have the right to block anything Christian! Christmas, for example. Seems that the mere mention of a Christmas tree “offends” them! I say go ahead and be offended, it won’t cost you anything extra!!

  • walt

    Just look at who runs the state dept. There is your answer. If the American knew of 1/4 of what this admin. does behind the peoples back, there would be changes in this country.

    No, problem. Just take care of any Temples or Christian churches as well. Anyone else want to throw in another religion? If you can’t separate, you better not discriminate.

  • Joanneo

    Our country is broke, we have only money that is borrowed, that we pay interest on, and we send it to a foreign countries to rebuild something that we don’t even believe in??Is this stupid or am I stupid for thinking this money could be used for our people to recover from Sandy? Fema says they do not have the funds, and our tax money is going to foreign countries for non emergencies?

    • a

      It is more than obvious that this administration does not work for the good of the American People. I hope those that voted for obamy come to suffer the MOST. Hope they know how to speak Russian or Arabic….

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kathleen-Pedersen/100000821446540 Kathleen Pedersen

    this is part of why Obama doesn’t want to have a budget. They don’t want to have to be accountable for anything they say or do. We the people need to press our Congressional representatives and Senators about this. Look at the people in NY (Staten Island, Coastal New York City and LI.). How long have these people been waiting for refurbishing? They are still off as bad as they were weeks ago. FEMA is absent it seems and the empty trailers they have are not being used to house these homeless people. Taxes are supposed to go for this type of help, not to mosques, or anything else in Europe or Asia………America first! I find it hard to believe the coldness of this president who is going off to spend a month on vacation in Hawaii (at our expense I’m sure) while American citizens suffer. He reminds me of some of the leaderships in the Middle East, Egypt, and others. High living while the peasants suffer. WAKE UP America! We the people do have the say, use it and shake up your Congress people with phone calls….enough calls do work….light up those switchboards.

    We should be bombing mosques, not rebuilding them

  • SallyE

    Disgusting. Does anyone remember the Orthodox church that was destroyed in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. Not only did our government not help them rebuild, but I believe the Port Authority took the land the church was on. Does our government favor Muslims? Sure looks like it.

    • a

      that’s because obamy IS a muslim … And all these people that wanted their freebies put this scum back in office. I hope the will like being muslim slaves…..

    My computer didn’t give me the sound on this one, but I got the message very clearly. Pardon my ignorance, but why is the State Department funding this? and are the foreign aid monies we send all over the world controlled by the State Department? If so, emails and phone calls, letters and pickets should let our House of Reps know we’re really ticked off! Whether this is old news or not, this idiocy must stop!! We’ve donated to every country, friend or foe for many years. We’ve shed our military’s blood on foreign soil for years, and that stopped being valuable with WWII and possibly Korea. Now our own government is bleeding us dry! Why do the young men and women all over the world take a stand in the streets, but not us??

    • ginger

      According to our Constitution …Congress is the only entity that can fund anything!!! Cut the budgets of ALL the “departments” and see how much we have to pay down our debt and make a budget and STICK to it.

    To Combat Veteran Seabee : You are misinformed, the Constitution does state that the government shall not endorse or enforce any religion. That in the letter and other documents has been understood to imply the separation of Church and State.

    Truth in the Koran…
    Believers must retaliate. Those who transgress will have a painful doom. 2:178….
    Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kill them. Such is the reward of disbelievers 2:191-2…intermarriage is forbidden. 2:221…Let not the believers take disbelievers for their friends in preference to believers. 3:28….Christians and Jews must believe what Allah has revealed to Muhammad or Allah will disfigure their faces or turn them into apes, as he did the Sabbath-breakers.
    (See 2:65-66) 4:47…Those who ascribe a partner to Allah (like Christians do with Jesus and the Holy Spirit) will not be forgiven. They have “invented a tremendous sin.” 4:48, 4:116…Oppose and admonish those who refuse to follow Muhammad. 4:63…Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them. 4:89…If the unbelievers do not offer you peace, kill them wherever you find them. Against such you are given clear warrant. 4:91…
    Allah has cursed the Jews and hardened their hearts. Nearly all of them are treacherous. 5:12-13…
    Don’t take Jews or Christians for friends. If you do, then Allah will consider you to be one of them 5:51…
    Christians are wrong about the Trinity. For that they will have a painful doom. 5:73…
    Fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. 8:39
    Allah will destroy non-muslim cultures.7:138-9.

    Those that the Muslims killed were not really killed by them. It was Allah who did the killing. 8:17…

    Fight against Christians and Jews “until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.” 9:29..
    Christians and Jews are perverse. Allah himself fights against them. 9:30
    Believers must fight for Allah. They must kill and be killed , and are bound to do so by the Torah, Gospel, and Quran. But Allah will reward them for it. 9:111
    “He (allah) maketh none to share in His government.” Democracy is heresy. Allah shares his
    government with no one. 18:26

    Smite the necks of the disbelievers whenever you fight against them. Those who die fighting for Allah will be rewarded. 47:4

    This is a total outrage to the american people by our own federal government! Absolutely outrageous! While our own government and courts are busy persecuting, harassing and supressing Christian churches, public Christmas displays, and any open prayers in public schools or public places, they are actually spending our money to promote MUSLIM (americas enemies and murderers), by building Mosques in their countries? Outrageous! This is tandamont to committing acts of high treason against every Christian in America! What are these democrats, liberals and communists doing still in office and still receiving pay and benefits from the evry people they are spitting on! We can no longer tolorate such open disrespect and assaults upon our beliefs and our country by these tratiors! They are actually worse and more offensive than al Qaida!

  • Mad Mike

    Every american should send a clear and unmistakable message to our federal government and president Obama! If they do not stop spending our tax dollars on foreign governments and aliens, we (the entire nation), will go on strike! Simply shut down every business, every store, every gas station, everything. Denying any taxes to flow to this criminal government by refusing to buy anything whatsoever. For one whole week! Shut it down. Show this dictatorial government who runs America! We do! Not them! Shut it down, shut it down!

  • Mad Mike

    This Obama regime has a “goal”. Restrictive laws and/or federal law suits against any Christian symbols. Force the Catholic church to support actions that they oppose. Take the word “God” out of public view and life so as to not offend atheists, But take these Christians tax dollars and give them to support a foreign religion that seeks their destruction or enslavement. What kind of country are we now living in? It cannot be the America we grew up in, supported and served the best years of our lives in the military for. Are we going to stand by and watch our country desolve into a dictatorship because they are doing it “one small step at a time”?

    This kind of funding a preferential religion by the state is exactly what the constitution of the United states prohibits.

    What the hell does the United States taxpayers receive from these Foreign Aid programs in any form. All foreign Aid in all forms should be immediately stopped even to Israel. If a nation can’t make it on their own with their own tax structures in place then need to go under. American Taxpayers should not be forced to fund all of the nations the world in the form of Foreign Aid, the American taxpayers do not receive any benefits of any kind from giving our money to any foreign nation. If private individuals wish to give money to foreign nations then they should do it all on their own without any taxpayers money involved at all.
