Congressional Flap: Swearing In A Muslim Congressman

You’ve no doubt read about Rep. Virgil Goode, R-Va, telling his constituents that unless his immigration reforms are adopted, many more Muslims will immigrate to this country, get elected to Congress and demand to be sworn in on the Koran, not on the Bible.

Like Keith Ellison, just elected to Congress from Minnesota and the first (known) Muslim Congressman.

Goode said the U.S. needs to stop illegal immigration “totally” and reduce legal immigration.

Goode added: “I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States if we do not adopt the strict immigration policies that I believe are necessary to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the United States of America and to prevent our resources from being swamped.”

Coupla points:

1. Ellison didn’t immigrate. He was born here.
2. Using the Bible, the Koran or the phone book is not allowed during the “actual” swearing in, on the floor of the House. It is permitted in private, photo-op swearing in’s, which don’t count.
3. People are demanding an apology for Virgil’s opinion. I don’t think anyone in America should have to apologise for his opinion.
4. Whether Ellison uses the Bible or the Koran doesn’t matter. When they made him a lawyer, Bill Clinton swore on a Bible, and thanks to lying as President he was disbarred. Mark Foley was sworn in on a Bible obtained for him by a male Congressional Page whom Foley was likely oogling. Tom DeLay, Newt Gingrich, Rostenkowski, Murtha, Agnew, Nixon – the list of miscreants who first swore solemn oaths is like a Washington seating chart.

It doesn’t matter, people. They are gonna do what they want to do, despite any oath. The only oath that counts is the one they swear at their felony trial, later.

I swear.
