Condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States.
Whereas the victims of anti-Muslim hate crimes and rhetoric have faced physical, verbal, and emotional abuse because they were Muslim or believed to be Muslim;
Whereas the constitutional right to freedom of religious practice is a cherished United States value and violence or hate speech towards any United States community based on faith is in contravention of the Nationâs founding principles;
Whereas there are millions of Muslims in the United States, a community made up of many diverse beliefs and cultures, and both immigrants and native-born citizens;
Whereas this Muslim community is recognized as having made innumerable contributions to the cultural and economic fabric and well-being of United States society;
Whereas hateful and intolerant acts against Muslims are contrary to the United States values of acceptance, welcoming, and fellowship with those of all faiths, beliefs, and cultures;

It is not irrational to fear evil
The future must not belong to those who deny the true nature of Islam
John Quincy Adams on Islam
In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust, by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE.
Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. That war is yet flagrant; nor can it cease but by the extinction of that imposture, which has been permitted by Providence to prolong the degeneracy of man. While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men. The hand of Ishmael will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. It is, indeed, amongst the mysterious dealings of God, that this delusion should have been suffered for so many ages, and during so many generations of human kind, to prevail over the doctrines of the meek and peaceful and benevolent Jesus (Blunt, 1830, 29:269, capitals in orig.).
Difference between hateful and protective. I’m supposed to bow to them?? BS
Where is the Resolution (or resolve for that matter) in support of Christians who are persecuted in Muslim countries? Why are Christians turned away as refugees? Why is Bashir Assad the only leader in the mid-east (except for Bibi) to at least show some effort to protect Christians?
Stick this were the sun don’t shine. I’ll say what I damn well please.
Meanwhile, somewhere in America, the left will cry, “Bake the damn cake you evil Christian!!!!!!!”.
Whereas congress has made a law favoring one religion over another, congress has violated the Constitution and is invalid and all members are hereby relieved of their office.
Whereas the democrat party has chosen to ally itself with Islam the democrat party has committed treason.
Hateful rhetoric? If you think that’s bad,
wait until we start playing cowboys and muslims.
That resolution is too complicated. Why don’t the thought police just propose repealing the First Amendment?
On second thought, their strategy makes sense. It’s tough to repeal an Amendment. But it’s easy to chip away at it until it’s gone.
Add it to the democrat party platform at the convention.

islam is a totalitarian death cult founded by a child rapist.
So it’s okay for athiests to hate Christians, but nobody can say anything about Muslims because Congress says so.
You spineless chickenhawks in office - screw you. This is America and we have the Bill of Rights. More specifically, we have the First Amendment that gives us the right to say whatever we want, and practice whatever we want.
If those out there, want to practice Jihad, go ahead, but there is the penalty of visiting your 72 virgins from a pork fat dipped FMJ if it’s practice on our home soil.
Your post is a KEEPER !
However Christian businesses are held in contempt. Got it.
No go. Not that I support, but this is unnecessary. Instead, how about a resolution rejecting Islm as a religion nod rejecting Sharia in any form?
