OH NO!  Where will they celebrate Rama-Dama-Ding-Dong?

Newsflash, religion is a scam!

If it's good enough for la Sarah, it should be good enough for scary brown people.

Imam Jari F'al-wel, living it up on his grifted millions.

Seriously? You've got millions at hand and your screwing around on your wife with a 57 year old while there are coeds looking to "further their education". Son, we need to talk.

Because religious leaders are inherently farking trustworthy, that's why.

Cordoba was already suing [the plaintiffs in this new lawsuit] for $1.5 million in U.S. District Court in Washington for allegedly knowingly inflating the value of a Washington condominium they sold to Cordoba in 2010 and then failing to transfer the title, The New York Times said.

Looks like some bad blood and shady and/or careless dealings.

There are safer things to do than troll the Muslim community. Those people have been known to go all jihad on those who offend their fundamentalist beliefs.

And let's face facts, the most fundamental belief of every religion is "don't Fark with my money."

Don't forget the $2 million in public funds he got to renovate his still unrenovated tenements in New Jersy.

What did they really expect from a known slum-lord?

Poor guy was just trying to blend in with his neighbors.  This is the western-way of doing things, right?

American Muslims are just like American Christians...who knew?

It's heartwarming to read about how we aren't all that different after all.

number_man: American Muslims are just like American Christians...who knew?


why is it that every time when there is a negative news story about Muslim/Islam on Fark, someone will undoubtly bring up some unrelated strawman comparison with Christianity but never vice versa or with other faiths?

/just honestly curious.

Because if you say anything bad about Islam or Muslims and compare it to another non-Christian faith, you are a red-neck, racist, Islamophobe, but if you denigrate Christianity you are a witty, insightful, progressive.

I think Muslims are as deluded as Christians or any other religious sect. It seems that people of faith are more apt to do these kinds of things. Just so happens that Christians make up a majority of the people in the United States with other Western Religions (Judaism & Islam) following closely behind. So, yes, they're all equally easy targets.

And, since they derive their religions from the same philosophies, for all intents and purposes having the same god, it's not really a straw man anyway. Now if it was Taoism or Buddhism or perhaps some other Eastern Religion, you may be able to forward that observation. I don't know many Taoist thieves or extortionists or criminals. I know quite a few that are Christians, Muslims and Jews -- probably because that's what I'm exposed to on a daily basis. Not to worry, though...I'd hold them (the Eastern Religious folks) in the same view given proper evidence.

I welcome the comments that others make, as silly or witty or informed or uninformed as they may be.

All religions are equally foolish, but some of them have a larger "violent ass-nugget" percentage amongst their adherents.

alleges the 64-year-old imam used $167,000 of his donations for personal real estate, a luxury sports car and expensive trips with a woman who is not his wife.

How far will $167k get you in the world of real estate and luxury sports cars?

That's what I was thinking.  $167K would make a good down payment on anything luxurious in real estate.

I blame it on the lack of bacon and booze.

They actually built the church first, and then started stealing for their lavish lifestyle.

It's good to see Muslims & Christians finding they so many things in common with each other.
