Good For Him!

Lawmaker Stands Firm on Quran Criticism

A congressman said Thursday that he will not retract a letter warning that unless immigration is tightened, "many more Muslims will be elected" and use the Quran to take the oath of office.

Republican Rep. Virgil Goode triggered angry responses from a civil rights group and some colleagues with a letter this month to constituents concerned about a decision by Rep.-elect Keith Ellison of Minnesota, the first Muslim elected to Congress, to use the Quran when he is sworn in.

"I will not be putting my hand on the Quran," Goode said at a news conference Thursday at the Franklin County Courthouse.

Goode, who represents Virginia's 5th Congressional District, said he is receiving more positive comments from constituents than negative.

A Message From the President and Founder Brigitte Gabriel:

Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to visit American Congress for Truth. War has been declared on Christians, Jews, non-Muslims and secularists worldwide by Islamic extremists... simply because we are infidels according to their belief.

As Islamic fundamentalism spreads its tentacles worldwide, it is crucial for the people of the Western world to understand the danger, know what to expect, and know what to do about it. Threats and realities of forced conversions to Islam, beheadings, torture and murder are quickly becoming commonplace.

They’re rarely mentioned in the news and when they are, it’s with a disclaimer…the word “insurgent” has replaced the truth of “terrorists.” Political correctness is killing us.

Please Read the Whole Piece:

Thank you, dear Batya, for bringing this to our attention.

The problem i have with this letter is it makes no sense.

What does Muslims have to do with with Illegal Immigrants coming through Mexico and our border what to do with each other?

The Congressmen seems a little confused to me.

His point is that we have to develop and enforce a decent, coherent immigration policy--and, yes, that involves both Mexicans and muslims. I'M confused; where does he mention Mexicans?

I guess that is one way to look at it, which we do need to do.

If he has said we need to protect our borders in this new age of Terror, than he would have me on board, but the way he worded it, it sounds somewhat incoherent.

He doesn't mention Mexicans. Perhaps you are conflating the article above it and this one?

If we were really seriuos about illegal Muslim immigration we would have found out that very many Muslims are here illegally.

They are being sheltered by the now not so small and not so poor Muslim communities and they are here not to melt in our melting pot but to steal the pot from us.


I am for raids on every mosque in the US starting now.

And I am for raids on any work place that employes illegal Mexicans starting yesterday.

CAIR is pissed. See THIS, and note the following paragraph:

"We are deeply troubled by the failure of state and national GOP leaders to clearly distance themselves from Representative Goode's intolerant remarks," said CAIR National Legislative Director Corey Saylor. He said Republican leaders in Virginia should have learned a lesson in tolerance from the controversy over Senator George Allen's "macaca" episode.

And then there's this little section:

In a statement issued today, Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) said: "The seven million Muslim-Americans living in the U.S. are an integral part of American society. Our country is a melting pot of different cultures and beliefs. This diversity is a strength, not a weakness. . .Bringing more Muslim-Americans into the political process is a goal, not something to be avoided."

No similar statements have come from GOP leaders. CAIR has offered to arrange a meeting between Goode and Virginia Muslims.

The congressman is worried about more and more Muslims coming here and than being elected to congress .

When more Muslims will demand to take oath on the Koran , the book that demands our demise for being infidel, then we have basicaly put our own heads under their swords.

The congressman is clear as a bell and so is the loud ring of warning coming out of him.
