Not to mention they are also excempt from Obamacare. So every Moslem living in this country will not be paying into this.
Just how to I go about claiming to be moslem to avoid the tax?
Is there a form I have to fill out?
Do I have to go buy a prayer rug or something?
Barbecue a goat?
Behead a Christian?
Someone needs to look at these cases as Federal Civil Rights crimes.
I don’t care about guessing what Obama wants. He needs to be sued for these egregious crimes.
Of course. HE HATES CHRISTIANS and loves his co religionists.
