Americans are more tolerant than any other people on Earth. We gladly welcome anyone to our shores who enters legally and wants to work hard and ASSIMILATE with our culture. Unfortunately, this is not the wish of many of those practicing Islam.
Just look at their treatment of gays and women. Look at their treatment of Christians — and heck, even of believers of different strains of Islam (Sunnis vs Shiites). Finally, consider that poll after poll shows that Muslims would prefer that Sharia be the law of the land instead of our own Constitution. It’s not hard to arrive at the conclusion that
Well, recently two Imams took to the floor of the Delaware Senate to lead the “invocation” to Allah. This was too much for one US Veteran, Senator Dave Lawson, to stand, and he spoke up to let his colleagues know about his displeasure.
From Right Wing News:
Lawson took to the floor after the prayer and recital of Islamic scripture was performed, and disciplined his fellow senators for their poor example of courage and respect for their country. He noted that they bowed in reverence for a religion that has called for the demise of their country and their people. Most of them were left in complete silence:
“We just heard from the Quran, which calls for our very demise. I fought for this country, not to be damned by someone that comes in here and prays to their God for our demise. I think that’s despicable.”
Unfortunately, it was David McBride, of course a Democrat, that sided with the ‘Religion of Peace’ and spoke in rebuke of Lawson’s words:
“I have never been of the mind to censure the words of other members, but I also believe deeply that words have consequences. To criticize the sacred prayer of another religion from the floor of the Senate strikes me as antithetical to everything we ought to stand for as lawmakers.”
But that was exactly when Lawson came back swinging and hit McBride, pointing out a truth that CANNOT be denied:
“Their belief flies in the face of our Constitution. This is not our Bible, we should not be allowing them to pray from that book in our house, just as I do not believe I would be allowed to pray from my Bible in their house.”
What do you think? Is it wrong to point out that Islam is not a tolerant religion?
