Report: Obama Spent $770 Million in Taxpayer Funds to Rebuild and Renovate Mosques Overseas
Top Right News ^ | 3/10/2014 | Jason DeWitt

Posted on 03/10/2014 1:46:52 PM PDT by make no mistake

A CBS news investigation found that the Obama State Department is sending millions of dollars to save mosques overseas — outraging taxpayer advocates and raising enormous questions about aid to potentially terror-supporting groups with U.S. foreign aid.

We rebuilt the monastery at Monte Cassino, but then we did blow it up. Isn’t there something in the First Amendment about this. Several churches were damaged at the WTC on 9/11. Dis the feds pay to repair them? I know the Saudis didn’t. Does CBS just report this without comment or explanation?

Meanwhile Christian churches are burned down with the people in them, they are hunted, put to death, imprisoned and enslaved.

And they do not get so much as honorable mention from obama or the democrats.

I find myself praying, “How long, oh God. How long will you allow these to mock and profane Your Holy name? How long will You show Your mercy and withhold Your judgment?”

How is it that I am literally sickened by the actions of my own government that seeks to profane the holy.

Not surprising at all. What the article fails to mention is all those Christian churches overseas he’s supporting. /sarc

Separation of church and state indeed. Separation of Obama from sanity is more like it.

Damnit! Damnit! This is so disgusting! Think of all the Charter Schools worth operating this money could be supporting. It may take someone like Ted Cruz to use this in order to educate the masses. He wouldn’t even need to editorialize very much. Just provide the facts. They can call the statement of face racist if they want to. That card is see through and dog eared by now anyway. It is no longer the guranteed Trump Card to stop all debate. If Rubio wants to be taken seriously again, he should start with this sort of material. Use it to gain friends and influence enemies.

Our tax dollars being used to build Mosques is no surprise considering the current nature of the State Department.

Last year, State installed a "Meditation Room" at its Washington headquarters.

In that same building, Hijab-wearing women and long-bearded men (not many yet, but a few), can be seen strolling the halls wearing TS-SCI badges.

Obastard would say that the separation of church and state doesn’t apply outside the borders of the US, which is where they are spending the money.

I ran across these verses last week, and was reminded by your post.

I had written “WOW” in the margin by verse 6 sometime in the past. And I said WOW, again last week. Verse 8 is good, too.

2Th 1:6

Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;

2Th 1:7

And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

2Th 1:8

In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

2Th 1:9

Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

2Th 1:10

When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed ) in that day.

“The GOP-e is complicit.’

The GOP controlled House is responsible for every appropriation of funds. Anything that has been funded since January 2011 has been approved by the GOP House members.

The Constitution gives the House control of appropriations. The fact they choose not to exercise their power, for fear of Obama and Harry Reid, does not relieve them from accountability.
