Congressman-Elect Announces He Will Only Take Oath On Qur'ān, Chaos Ensues... (Updated)

Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress, has announced that he will not take his oath of office on the Bible, but on the bible of Islam, the Koran.

He should not be allowed to do so -- not because of any American hostility to the Koran, but because the act undermines American civilization.

First, it is an act of hubris that perfectly exemplifies multiculturalist activism -- my culture trumps America's culture. What Ellison and his Muslim and leftist supporters are saying is that it is of no consequence what America holds as its holiest book; all that matters is what any individual holds to be his holiest book


Okay, this just begs the question: Are you absolutely fucking kidding me? Well today is a bittersweet day. Because this can only mean that the problems of poverty, world hunger, and aids have been solved. That can be the only rational explanation when we are paying people over $400/day each to argue that all of America as we know it is going to collapse if some guy slaps his hand atop a Qur'ān when he is sworn into office.

Well, in a way, it's quite amusing. Think of it this way, for all the fighting to allow religion into the public sector -- it has finally come to bite those people in the ass. THIS IS WHY the "liberals" and other "evil", god-less groups of individuals have been fighting against religion being allowed into the public sector to begin with! If they could get their heads out their asses they would realize it's not an attack on "Christian values" it's to try to avoid situations exactly like this from ever happening in the first place!

It's astonishing to me what a one-way street all of their talk of getting rid of "PC" is. They're such hard-asses when it comes to not worrying about who gets offended, until they are the ones getting the short end of the stick. Yeah, right buddy, political correctness is destroying America until you walk into Walmart one day and get told "Merry Ramadan!"

Or god forbid some guy wants to put his hand on a "holy" book you happen to not subscribe to. If they could step back from their huge egos for two seconds and realize the the battle to separate church and state is not an attack on Christianity they wouldn't find themselves in these kinds of situations in the first place!

Update: My apologies folks, as a reader pointed out to me, it looks as though this entire issue was fabricated in an attempt to stir up trouble for Islamic Congressmen Keith Ellison. More details here.

Not sure where your quote was from but this is essentially a non issue since the Bible isn't used in the swearing in ceremony. More details available here:
