Keith Ellison to Take Oath on Koran From Founding Father's Library
To complete the insult of swearing his oath of office on the Middle East's Dark Ages version of Mein Kampf instead of a Bible, America's first Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison will use a Koran formerly belonging to one of our greatest Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson.
Jefferson obviously was no Muslim but a devout Christian. The Koran was part of his library, which at one time was the largest in North America, and served as the basis for the Library of Congress.
The Koran and its followers call for the destruction of the great system Jefferson and his colleagues bequeathed to us, in the name of a demonic Antichrist figure from the 6th century. Just five years ago they tried to fly a plane full of Americans into the Capitol; now we're electing them to pass laws inside it.
Here's the Kid From Brooklyn's take on the issue (not work safe).
On a tip from Wiggins.

Luv ya Van Helsing but I think this is a non-issue and you hurt our cause by harping on it. So did Prager.

I think his case accurately reflects that of most conservatives:
1. All muslims are subhuman, murdering fanatics
2. All non-whites are subhuman and deserve to be deported.
No reason to sacrifice your true feelings to surreptitiously promote the middle ground.

When a lib says "it's a non-issue", what they mean is "stop talking about it so it can go away."
Why do libs feel they can decide what's relevant for others to be concerned with?

True enough, but actually Vonster's no lib.

Painting all persons of a particular religion, race, or nationality with a broad brush is more akin to Mein Kempf than anything in Thomas Jefferson's library.
Meet a Muslim. Talk to him.
They're not all like Osama bin Forgotten -- any more than Tim McVeigh or Adolph Hitler are examples of all Catholics.

Let's see, The U.S. is at war with ISLAMoFascists. The book of Islam is The Koran. And as a side bar we rarely if ever see or hear a Muslim speak out or protest about ISLAMoFascist Terror Acts. So therefore I think we can all pretty much agree that The Koran is much like Mien Kampf during WWII. And please, none of this there are Christian Terrorists too. There were 2. That's McVeigh and he's dead and the other is Eric Rudolph and he's in the same slammer as some ISLAMoFascist Terrorists. Accoding to Savage, McVeigh was NOT a Christian. Can anyone verify this? And there are no Christan Imans demanding Christians strap bombs to themselves like ISLAMoFascist Muslims are doing this very minute in Iraq and elsewhere. So Yeah, Keith Ellison needs you start yapping about how ISLAM needs to quit The Terror Biz but I doubt he will given his resume and how he needs to soothe those that contributed to his election campaign. Yup, This is just like electing a Nazi to office during WWII. Hitler wasn't a Catholic or a Christian for that matter.

Actually, I was a Christian, but not a Catholic.

Is that the best you can do, moonbat?
This war has been going on since the Seventies, maybe even earlier. Will the Neo-Communists ("Liberals", "Progreesives") please SHUT THE HELL UP and let us who want to LIVE IN FREEDOM defeat the Islamo-maniacs so they will stop MURDERING INNOCENT PEOPLE? Or do you WANT this war to go on for a few more DECADES?
Never forget how the Viet Nam war dragged on because of media propiganda and protests. And never forget the millions who died thanks to the Liberal "war protesters" egged on by the American Communist party.

He is just another black militant thug who want's to destroy white America and shove it's historic majority aside.

What a truly sad revision of history, spewed from the mouth of an utter ignoramus. The Vietnam War did not drag on because of protesters, you unbelievable moron. It was not winnable. Just as turning a bunch of desert savages into righteous civilians is not possible, no matter how many Americans die trying. And how ironic is it that a draft supporting conservative nutsack like you speaks of freedom? You wouldn't recognize freedom if it sprayed out of your abusive, drug-addled, ex-army father's ass. It's people like you who will insist this war continue for decades. You need to get McVeighed, and fast.

From Wikipedia, Hitler was NOT Christian but he tried to "reinvent" Chritianity so as to show Jesus hates Jews, much like Islamofascists and Moonbats:
"Adolf Hitler was brought up in his family's religion by his Roman Catholic parents, but as a school boy he began to reject the Church and Catholicism. After he had left home, he never attended Mass or received the Sacraments.
In later life, Hitler's religious beliefs present a discrepant picture: In public statements, he frequently spoke positively about the Christian heritage of German culture and belief in Christ. Hitler’s private statements, reported by his intimates, are more mixed, showing Hitler as a religious but also anti-Christian man. However, in contrast to other Nazi leaders, Hitler did not adhere to esoteric ideas, occultism, or neo-paganism, and ridiculed such beliefs in his book Mein Kampf. Rather, Hitler advocated a "Positive Christianity", a belief system purged from what he objected to in traditional Christianity, and reinvented Jesus as a fighter against the Jews.
......So there you have it, Hitler, Keith Ellison/CAIR, and ISLAMoFascists, and Moonbats = 1 in the same. Jew hatin' Anti-Israeli Ant-American Brothers in Arms.
....And if I hear Keith Ellison yap about how he's ok with Jews and Israel. What's that term "Taqiya". I won't believe him. I wanna see him eat a Pork Rind to convince me.

Re: Christian terrorists
I don't think McVeigh ever claimed to be a Christian. I think it's just one of those things libs want to believe so they can say, "See, there are Christian terrorists."
Neither McVeigh nor Rudolph can justify their actions by claiming to be Christians. Christianity has a bloody history, not because that's what it was about, but because of, in part, supremacism and anti-Semitism.
The same cannot be said for Islam, however. Islam wasn't presented to people as an option. It was submit or die.
Christians may have acted that way out of error, but that's the way that Islam is.

I believe both Hitler and McVeigh were essentially pagan/atheists. Regardless, they showed by their behavior that they were not adherents of any Christian faith.

As for the Quran, one thing we are taught about Satan is that he mixes lies with the truth. It's unsurprising that there are many, many good things in the Quran. One could even find laudable tenets in the philosophy of Satanism. But you really have to look at the fruits of a religion to determine whether it is really of God or the Adversary.
Iran is a country run entirely by Islamic clergy. Therefore, one would think that the truest expression of Islamic government would be Iran... a country that is the world's leading source of terrorism and leading violators of human rights.
Someone care to tell me where my reasoning here is wrong?

Yeah I'm a lib like Van Helsing is a Code Pink member. :-)

Personally I think they should all take the oath of office on a copy of the Constitution of the United States, since that is what ther promise to protect and defend. But let him take his oath on whatever he wants. Doesn't mean a hill of beans anyway. People still break that oath no matter what holy book it was sworn on.

I remember a talk show host had a caller on the phone and was trying to convince people that both Muslims and Christians can both be terrorists. It was Neil Boortz or however you spell it. He said to the caller "doesn't the Bible say an eye for an eye?" and the caller was stumped.
I haven't listened to him since that time. It was frustrating to hear someone claiming that old testament Jewish law was the same as the teachings of Jesus, who actually said the exact opposite. "you have heard it said an eye for an eye but I say to you..." I'll let you look up the rest.
Anyway, it's impossible for someone who's actually following the true teachings of Jesus (the definition of Christianity, I believe) to be a terrorist. I'm not talking about the old testament where killings and such were common, I'm talking about Christianity.
But the Koran actually DOES justify killing in many cases. It makes a big distinction between followers of Islam or those under dhimmitude (the house of peace) and everyone else (the house of war).
People try to falsely say Christians can be terrorists, but it's really people who have twisted Christianity into some false, powermongering, medieval, man-made religion.
Vonster, sorry, knee-jerk reaction. Seems lately you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a liberal troll on this site.
