No $$$ for US Churches, But plenty for Foreign Ones?

The Government can't spend a penny on churches here, but can spend millions on foreign mosques.

This year, the Obama administration will spend nearly $6 million to restore 63 historic and cultural sites, including mosques and minarets, in 55 nations, according to State Department documents.
That includes $76,000 for a 16th century mosque in China, $67,000 for a mosque in Pakistan, $77,000 to restore minarets in Nigeria and Mauritania, and $50,000 for an Islamic Monument in India. See the AP story here

Why don't we save $6million and apply it to US debt?
Yeah I know it is only 2 cents per person, but we have to start somewhere. Foreign aid is a few dollars per person. Lets trim it back. Lets trim back on everything. There are things we must have, and things that are nice to have. Let's eliminate "Nice to have" until we can pay for what "we must have"
