In JESUS Name we pray. Amen.
I'll bet they have!
Tar, feathers, rail. The cure for tyrants.
Until they go after that

Out here in CA, when the United Way dropped the Boy Scouts, I dropped the United Way.
Why do the jokes write themselves?
The day of Reckoning is coming.
God is discriminatory - He distinguishes good from evil.
File an immediate lawsuit demanding this guy apply the same standard to all Muslim Charities. Make the issue into one of his discriminating against Muslims.
this would be a blatant constitutional violation of the free exercise and equal protection clauses.
