No Goode: Congressman's Hateful Comments Demand Response (Liberal attacks on Virgil Goode)
Fox News ^

Posted on 12/25/2006 7:21:42 AM PST by Princip. Conservative

Here we go. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, has yet to take office, and already the ugliness begins.

Mr. Ellison plans to bring his Koran with him on Jan. 4 when he takes the oath of office. The Koran is the Muslim holy book. If Christians and Jews can bring their Bibles, why shouldn’t Mr. Ellison be able to bring his Koran?

The answer given this week by Virginia Rep. Virgil Goode was simple enough: Because Mr. Goode doesn’t believe in the Koran, Mr. Ellison doesn’t have any right to either. I kid you not.

What could be less American? Or less Christian?

In a letter sent to constituents, Goode wrote: “When I raise my hand to take the oath on Swearing-In Day, I will have the Bible in my other hand. I do not subscribe to using the Koran in any way.”

It gets worse.

“The Muslim representative from Minnesota was elected by the voters of that district, and if American citizens don’t wake up and adopt the Virgil Goode position on immigration, there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Koran.”

More Muslims elected to office? More Muslims seeing our government as representative and fair? Is this a bad thing?

How many Senators' and Representatives' oaths are worthless no matter what they swear upon?

"So, if this concept applies that a representative can take the oath on any book he/she wishes...

Does that include Wicca?


Mein Kampf?

or maybe Mad Magazine."

LOL - Where does it stop??

"Congressman Goode has raised a good point and should stick to it and not back down."

Agreed. I don't think the liberals are going to make much hay from this one.

"He was elected because the MSM in that town(Minneapolis Star and sickle) refused to tell the people of his back ground. Namely, extreme antisemitism, support of cop killers and a generally extremist history. Had they known he would not of been elected even in this district."

I'm sure this is true, and I really can't completely condemn Minnesota voters. Don't forget that ultra-conservative Republican Michelle Bachmann was elected there in this very austere, anti-Republican environment and GOP Governor Tim Pawlenty won narrowly, too.

But truthfully, how many congressmen lie when they put their hand on the Bible? To me the point is moot except that it may raise awareness that the Koran encourages Muslims to lie to infidels.

The LSM is feeling its oats. It admits that it has created Barack Obama from whole cloth simply so it can be able to say it is so powerful it can create and manufacture a presidential candidate pretty much out of thin air and get him (or her) elected president. Barack Obama is a media creation, pure and simple. He was an obscure marxist in the Illinois state legislature before the media discovered him; and when it did discover him, it immediately announced to the world: Just wait and see what we can do!

"Using a Bible to swear upon is a tradition, not a provision.

One could affirm on Margaret Murray's "God of the Witches", an Empire Strikes Back DVD, or nothing at all (as Theodore Roosevelt did)."

Another way of looking at it is would a Muslim country allow a popularly elected official to be sworn in on a BIBLE???? I don't think so.

(Resisting the urge to go all-caps flamer)

When in the world is someone going to point out that Keith Ellison is a member of Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam!!?

That NOI is not recognized as truly Muslim by `mainstream' Muslims but seen rather as a nutty cult!!?

That Keith Ellison did NOT have to adopt a completely Arab Muslim name as if he had been a convert to `true' Islam!!

But... the `real Muslims' know a stalking-horse when they see one, and CAIR and the other pro-terrorist groups have fallen totally silent on the issue of Keith Ellison's "Muslimness"!

Comments? Questions? Anyone?? Is anyone even listening?

Help...I'm growing hoarse...can't go hope..(gasp)

Anyone Susan Estrich demonizes can only be good for America. Virgil Goode represents a strong current in American politics. Like Ronald Reagan, he was a loyal American who happened to be a Democrat. Because the Democrat party has increasingly placed party based on socialist ideology before loyalty to God and country, he left the Democrat party. Or as Ronald Reagan said "I didn't leave the Democrat party, it left me." Goode needs to keep reminding voters that the Democrat allegiance to multiculturalism has and will include attempts to appease and even aid moslem militants. A candid answer to who are America's real enemies by Vermont's senators Leaky Leahy and Bernie "the Communist" Sanders would be conservative Republicans, not Islamic Jihadists. A fortunate circumstance for conservative Republicans would be the nomination of Barak "Hussein" Obama (or as mush-brained Teddy Kennedy called him, "Osama Obama") to head the Democrat ticket. Sharing a name with the Butcher of Baghdad will not endear him to most voters.

Goode has zero reason to appologize for telling the truth.

The "outrage" of the left is 100% pure fakery to obtain campaign monies for 2008.

The fact is we are not being honest about the fact that radical islam is the dominant, majority, mainstream believer form of that faith.

I am curious where are the other REALY players today like Donna Brazile, Podesta, Pineta, and the rest of the clintonistas.

As they are sworn in Congress-critters don't put their hands on anything at all. Never have.

The dispute is over the photo ops that take place after the swearing in ceremony.

Now, do they lie? Sure, after all they are Congress-critters.

My only question would be why this particular Congress-critter wants to have a photo taken showing me that, Fur Shur, he intends to lie to me.

That's rather stupid doncha' think.

Genesis 16:12 "And he will be a wild ass of a man; His hand will be against everyone, And everyone's hand, against him; And he will settle down opposite all his brothers."

No one has mentioned the real origin of Islam which is Ishmael the son of Abraham conceived through his servant. Abraham and Sarah did not believe God's promise which was that Sarah would bare a son, Isaac. So Sarah convinces Abraham to sleep with the servant. Ishmael was born and Ishmael typifies the flesh. And Genesis 16:12 speaks of the type if man Ishmael is. The Koran speaks of their father Abraham, but the Islamic heretics fail to realize that they are descendants of the flesh!

Basheva, Congress-critters are sworn in without Bibles, etc.

They just stand there.

Did you imagine it to be otherwise?

One of the most disturbing facts about Ellison being a muslim is that every muslim in America whom I ever ever seen or heard has proclaimed allegiance to Islam above all else. To that end, I question Ellison's commitment to the United States and his willingness to work in our best interest.

Plus his grandstanding photo opp show 'n tell with the Koran also speaks to his true allegiances. This guy worries me the more I learn about him.

I have pointed out this fact in several of these Posts.

Farrakhans Muslims are no more Muslims than I am. They are racial bigots espousing the Islamic religion because it excuses their hatreds and makes their bigotry valid. At least to them.

Farrakhan is to Islam as the KKK is to Christianity..

Exactly- Most everything in the Koran goes directly against the constitution of this country- Ellison is in OUR country NOT his- He abides by the wishes of OUR citizens- NOT the Muslim comunity! If He can't stand before OUR God and swear an oath or affirmation & be bound by our God's oat- then he has NO business serving! Ellison does NOT have to beleive in our God- but he best believe WE take our God and oaths to Him VERY seriously!!! Hopefully Goode will tell estrich to take a flying leap!!!

Talk about deception! I hope God opens the eyes of these Estrichy type people and soon. They're far more dangerous than Muslims here, in my opinion.
