Our dear Caleb the Turkish propagandist wrote

>Beside the tradition of religious intolerance you so accurately describe, there is a parallel tradition in rural America of religion as entertainment: tent shows, revival meetings and their modern equivalent the megachurch. Hick preacher Terry Jones put himself on the map by a publicity stunt. It was a business decision one hundred percent.Why should the taxpayers of Gainesville and the State of Florida have to subsidize a man's business activities?

Sure and it seems that the so called Shiekh Abdul Rauf al-ikhwani is now paying the city of Union, NJ's police force for keeping an eye on his slums that he rents to poor people the amount of $13000 and climbing and he will be paying th city of NY's police dept. for his protection oh yeah and he has to fix his mess in those buildings that he own and he hired a PR firm to take care of the publicity mess that he caused and he will have to deal with the IRS in regard to his little claim that his Manhattan apt. is really a church so he can save some money on his income tax!

Well let me see it seems that he and his annoying wife daisy's assets are his apt and $180,000 which would not go far to fix all his mess and it does not break my heart

You see our dear caleb what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander
