    I wish we should bring all our troops home, focus til we get it straight here and then we will see what is up.

    People fighting, killing and blowing each other up in other places is not really on my top of the list radar screen since we have so many problems right here. I sound like a bitch but would rather our focus be making sure no kids go hungry, get killed by gangsters, etc. than worrying about someone that could give a crap less about us and wishes us death to worry about it.

    Spend money here, get our homeland straight and then maybe try to save the rest of the world. Those that hate us should be the LAST on our to do list. JMO

    OK, look.

    If attempting to stop the building of this thing is wrong and evil because it's an affront to First Amendment freedom of religion, then so, too, are federal funds to help build it.

    You cannot have it both ways. If this is not a religious building, then protests against it have no freedom of religion component to them at all.

    The United States armed forces can't fix the problems here, unless you're suggesting that they launch a coup to overthrow Obama.

    Neat. Can my Christian church recieve federal funding?

    What with all this seperation of church and state nonsense, I figure it'd be alright.

    I agree. We shouldn't have taxpayer funded religious buildings. I also think religious groups shouldn't have special tax exemptions.

    Actually in Europe. Public money funds religious buildings all the time not to mention special tax breaks
    Tax money is often used for Mosques, Churches, faith schools etc and it is compulsory or used to be in some European countries to learn about Christianity and religion.
