I'm familiar with him. A lot of American fundamentalist preachers were "off the record" supportive of Uganda's kill-the-gays law. Kevin Swanson is another one and he's actually pretty prominent. Most of them prefer a more Russia-style law, leaving homosexuality legal but having it heavily discouraged by the state.

Many of them are supportive of such. And it's OUR missionaries who have stressed the issue.

That said, I don't want my tax dollars going to Palestine either.

Why should I pay billions because Israel and Palestine can't work out their differences? They have had years and years to work out some agreement and neither side will budge.

Israel has budged plenty over the years. But the Palestinian Arabs refuse to recognize Israel's right to exist. Israel is a tolerant country that allows the LGBT community to live freely which isn't the case in the West Bank or Gaza.

Lol....but...but....Israel!

My view on Palestine is that they are still at war with Israel and are losing.

So, basically Palestine relies on useful idiots and fellow muslims that believe and propagate jewish tropes to try to pressure Israel for not being nicer to Palestine who still says they want to wipe out Israel.

It's like having to hear why we weren't "nicer" to the Japanese while they were still launching Kamikaze attacks on our ships and killing thousands of Chinese\Korean etc. civilians daily.

Err, "The orange man made them do it." Failing that, "They're fronting for Christian fundies."

They will not own it.

Since you're an open borders Democrat, why does it matter to you if your tax money goes to them when they're in the Middle East or here in America?

Since I'm not an open borders Democrat - you continue to show your ignorance, Fiend.
