Editorial comment: Is it likely that the State Department would become involved trying to enlighten the world about Christianity? What about separation between Church and State? To put this in the proper perspective, Islam must be called the cult that it is and drop the pretense that it is a religion.
Dhimmitude. An update on yesterday’s post regarding the State Dept. sending the imam of the proposed Ground Zero mosque on a Middle Eastern field trip at U.S. taxpayer expense.
“He is a distinguished Muslim cleric,” said State Department Spokesman P.J. Crowley. “We do have a program whereby, through our Educational and Cultural Affairs Bureau here at the State Department, we send people from Muslim communities here in this country around the world to help people overseas understand our society and the role of religion within our society.”
“It is to foster greater understanding and outreach around the world, among… Muslim- majority communities,” said Crowley. “We’ve done this many, many times, with many leading figures… over the past few years.”
In our society, religion is supposed to play a personal role – so why is the government using tax dollars to promote Islam in America? This is from the same spokesman who blatantly ignored jihad while defending Islam a few weeks ago.
