Allahu Akbar, Or Else

Keith Ellison, Democrat from Minnesota, the first Muslim to be elected to the House of Representatives, says he will not take his oath of office on the Bible, but insists on using the Koran. Dennis Prager says he should not be allowed to do that, and I agree.

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.

Forgive me, but America should not give a hoot what Keith Ellison's favorite book is. Insofar as a member of Congress taking an oath to serve America and uphold its values is concerned, America is interested in only one book, the Bible. If you are incapable of taking an oath on that book, don't serve in Congress. In your personal life, we will fight for your right to prefer any other book. We will even fight for your right to publish cartoons mocking our Bible. But, Mr. Ellison, America, not you, decides on what book its public servants take their oath.

Amen. Ellison should never have been elected, I don't understand what the people of Minnesota could have been thinking. With his background he shouldn't have gotten a single vote. But look where he is. Now he insists that WE conform to HIS way of thinking, the Muslim way, and wants to take his oath on the very book which contains admonitions to kill us. What a screwed up situation.

In my opinion, if he refuses to take his oath as an American and use the Bible like everyone else, he should not be allowed to take office. Never happen, of course. The Democrats are too bold, and the Republicans too timid to make an issue of it.
