Fudie Quote: Ellison should not sit in Congress

"Enough evidence exists for Congress to question Ellison's qualifications to be a member of Congress as well as his commitment to the Constitution in view of his apparent determination to embrace the Quran and an Islamic philosophy directly contrary to the principles of the Constitution." -Former judge Roy Moore

Isn't it funny how willing Christians are to talk about how whacked Muslims are? Don't they understand that it cuts both ways?

Apparently they're so used to being around other Christians and getting away with it, they've never bothered to consider the implications.

The voters, for all their frequent ineptitudes, are those first and foremost privileged to decide who is qualified to sit in Congress to represent them; clearly they've made their choice in that district of Minnesota.

Also if that judge thinks Ellison's views are unseemingly Islamic and somehow unconstitutional... he's clearly got no idea of the actual range of Islamism (political Islam). Given the current political atmosphere, Ellison is one of the only type of Muslim that could get elected: a reasonable and conciliatory one. And given the inroads our current foreign policies make into the lives and wellbeings of Muslim people in predominantly Muslim nations, thank god there's finally a Muslim in Congress.

Under Islam, there are only the laws of Allah. Because only Allah can make laws, the government of the people is not recognized by Muslims, and is not the highest authority to them. Above all human made laws, are the laws of Islam. This is why a Muslim should not be in government.

that's a false dilemma and it can be directed at christians as well.

do christians not believe that, above all human made laws, are the laws of their god? therefore a christian should not be in government.

I've always had a problem with people who claim "divine law", yet work in government. We have many fundie Christian senators and representative. These people bear watching. Ellison does not appear to be a Islamic fundie, so he is no real problem.
