A Curious Allah Van
The Allah van is usually parked in this driveway. It is a curiosity, sticking out like a sore thumb in this central Florida community, which features religious groups of all sizes and colors (mostly Christian), but is notably knee-deep in Christian fundamentalist rednecks.
We have over 200 Baptist churches, several Roman Catholic churches, a couple of Anglican churches, two Episcopal churches (one of which is a breakaway and won't accept gays), the usual mainstream churches (Lutheran, Presbyterian, Methodist, United Church of Christ, etc.), a bunch of large independent churches, and lots of small store-front churches tucked away in strip malls.
There are, I believe, four Jewish temples.
I don't think there is a mosque.
The theme for September 1, is "Curiosities." You can check out what other City Daily Photo bloggers have posted to honor this theme here.
