A city commissioner who does not understand the meaning of Separation of Church and State?

Clearly, this man is living in his religious fantasy world and using that fantasy in his politics. People like that have no business in politics. If I were a Lancaster resident, I would definitely motion to have him removed.

Actually, saying "f-----t" is far less disturbing than the rest of the councilor's message.

Is this guy Muslim, given his last name? If so, he should realize that "synagogue of Satan" is a medieval term invented by Christians to associate Judaism and Satanism. But they could have just as easily called it the "Mosque of Satan." He should read a bit of hstory.(And also study up a bit on rhetoric and English grammar.)

There is no place for this mindset on a city commission. Mayor Parris and the City Council should act for his removal.
