    Which follows the Koran that dictates that Muslims have no Christian or Jewish friends.

    Let me guess, NOW the Fundamentalist Christians feel the need to uphold the separation of church and state. 🙂

    Glad I live in a sane town with noise ordinances and not in a place where an irrational city council decided to broadcast prayers. If you complain the Muslims tell you it isn’t too loud. Wow.

    Better than majority athiest or majority gay, I say! Friends, in the past I used to fear the Muslims but now I have made my peace with them. The enemy of my enemy is my friend! If it will help win the Culture War and stop the spread of liberal seculerism, then bring on the Shariah Law!

  • I am curious. Why the loud speakers? Don’t Muslims know the prayers by now?
