It’s true! And I’ve got a picture of the place right here:
This is the Islamic Society of Boston’s mosque in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood, a.k.a. “Menino’s Mosque.
Mayor Menino “sold” $2 million worth of city property to the ISB for $175,000, despite their well-documented links to Muslim extremism. The mosque teaches a form of Islam that condemns homosexuals to death.
And Menino won’t let a guy spend his own money opening a restaurant because he doesn’t support same-sex marriage? Hey, Mayor Moron—when was the last time Chick-Fil-A stoned a gay guy to death?
OK, so you don’t believe me. You think I’m making this up. Check this out: Even the uber-liberal Boston Phoenix reported on it at the time:
Mayor Menino, in a fit of multicultural ecumenicalism, approved the sale of city-owned land to the mosque for the bargain basement — and still controversial — price of $175,000, plus the promise of in-kind services, including upkeep of nearby parks. The predictable uproar that arose in the wake of not only selling land well below market rates, but also selling it to a religious institution in contravention of the supposed separation of church and state, was supposed to be muffled by making the complex available for community use. But oops — that never happened.
The facts are not in dispute: Mayor Menino gave a $1.8 million tax-dollar donation to build a mosque. He was there when the mosque opened. And this mosque teaches homosexuality is a sin to be punished by death.
And this makes sense…how?
