I think we should stop most of this arts funding. Arts should be privately funded.. I particularly dislike funding this pro terrorist play. Private industry can fund what it likes, but we can protest their funding of a pro terrorist play.
David Akin has been nice enough to suplly the numbers we can call to express our opinion on funding pro jihadi plays.
