Articles like this show just how many billions of dollars could be trimmed from our budget to bring the deficit down. Things like international projects should be at the bottom of the list right now. Why is the government using our tax dollars to repair and beautify mosques around the world? Do they do anything like this for American churches(I hope not)
Im still pissed about the damn SODA'S and WATERS we pay for...

No, IMO, they government should be cutting back spending just like a regular household or business should when they have no money. They certainly shouldn't be even considering taking a pay raise.

In a document provided on Monday to Indiana Republican Sen. Richard G. Lugar, ranking member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, the State Department explained that the practice of funding such projects became acceptable in 2003 when the Justice Department declared that the U.S. Constitution’s Establishment Clause did not preclude federal funds from going to preserve religious structures if they had cultural importance.
Thanks for the perspective
