Florida tax collector stirs controversy over Muslim post

- An elected official in Florida says he's got nothing against Muslims, despite his social media posts that are stirring up controversy.

Seminole County tax collector Joel Greenberg posted a question Saturday on Facebook saying this: "Name just ONE society in the developed world that has benefited in ANY WAY from the introduction of more Muslims. Just one. Asking for a friend."

Then, he posted a link to an anti-Muslim website.

The local Jewish Community Relations Council responded by saying "Hey Joel Greenberg: We can. You're living in it."

Others called on him to resign. But some also wrote in support.

Greenberg told the Sentinel he was only copying what a friend had written, and thinks members of all religions have benefited society.
