A city board on Thursday gave a Muslim group the go-ahead to remove six crosses from the roof and spires of a century-old former Catholic church so the now-vacant Gothic structure can be used as a mosque.

If they bought it, they bought it. They could raze the entire building if they wanted.

Private property is still just that.

People who owe allegiance to a foreign power have no right to claim American prerogatives here and when that foreign power - the UMMA - is an enemy of America, they should be expelled in mass back to their homeland - i.e. Saudi Arabia to contemplate their demonic monn-god there.

We’d probably have to shut down 60% or more of American businesses...

Don’t disagree with you at all, but it is reality.

How so? Mohammadans only make up a small percentage of the population.

Years ago, before retiring from L.E., I was called to the scene of bones discovered in front of a church. The front walk was dug up to be repaired and they found the bones IFO the church, an old protestant church built in the early 20th century. Anyway, long story short, they were found to be pig bones, most likely remnants of an old barbecue.

I hope the old congregation of the church in Syracuse also had roasted up a pig at a church dinner and buried the bones on site.

Yep. After they cut the crosses off they can go inside & begin agitating to replace our constitutional republic with an Islamic theocracy.

The Constitution is a suicide pact.

” Yusuf Soule, the center’s director, has been the public point-person for the mosque effort. He said the crosses must be removed because the Islamic faith prohibits worship of idols and symbols.”

Choosing our churches to make into their mosques just another ‘piss on you’ infidels. Suerly there are other places.

Which part of the First Amendment says that? Is it in the penumbras and emanations?
