Muslims Less of a Burden on Government, says Imam

From Colin Freeze's excellent story on the return of the Khadr widow and son to Canada:
In his sermon, Imam Aly Hindy told the faithful that the senior Mr. Khadr may or may not have been a terrorist, but that it's now for God to judge.

As for the rest of the immediate family, "these people have extreme views," he conceded. "But who said if you have extreme views you should be kicked out?"

The imam said Muslims pay taxes and probably require fewer social services than non-Muslims because they eschew activities such as drinking, promiscuity and homosexual relationships.
Riiiiight. Sigh...

[Aren't you proud I avoided making a single 'Welcome Back Khadr' joke?]
