Jay, The “Ground Zero Mosque” debate continues. I appeared on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor” on Friday evening to discuss the issue with Walid Shoebat – a man who claims he’s a Muslim terrorist turned Christian. Because of Shoebat’s […]

Jay, You must REALLY like the Burlington Coat Factory. That’s the only logical explanation I can come up with for why the American Center for Law and Justice, which claims it’s all about preserving Americans’ religious freedom, would file a […]
