“There’s no minister, there’s no rabbi in this city — nor are there some imams — that object to having police officers in their congregation,” he argued. “In fact, they want them there, they want them to learn the message. It’s enlightening for them.”
“So if you’ve got nothing going on there but a beautiful religious service, why in His name would you not want to have police officers there?” he asked.
