Ellison: ‘There’s Nothing Wrong With Being a Muslim
Cybercast News Service ^ | 9/7/12 | Melanie Hunter

Posted on 09/07/2012 1:19:04 PM PDT by Nachum

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the first Muslim elected to Congress and the first African-American elected to the House from Minnesota, said Thursday that when some accuse President Barack Obama of being a Muslim, it’s “as if it’s something to be ashamed of or wrong,” but there’s really “nothing wrong with being a Muslim.” “A not-so-uncommon form of attacking the president has been to question not only where he was born, but his faith, and often that’s by saying he’s a Muslim. Can you talk to me about that, and as a Muslim-American, how does that make you feel?”

Yeah, sure, nothing wrong with BEING a Muslim,

but part of being a “good Muslim” is that little “supremacy” aspect, and that we have to take exception with.

Yes, there is something wrong with being a Muslim as the religion is diametrically opposed to Christianity. The Koran teaches followers to kill those who refuse to accept Islam. The Bible teaches us to love our enemies.

Yes, there is shame and embarrassment in being a part of a religion that teaches such a vacuum of real values. If I believed that way, I'd beat my wife and kill people who disagreed with me too. How can one follow a religion that teaches Satanic values? What an open shame.

Keith learned long ago that if he ever aspired to public office representing the Twin Cities area, he’d never make it as a black Catholic. Hence...Islam.

Prove it Ellison, take your faith back from the malignant savages that you claim do not represent your “religion”. With extreme prejudice if necessary. Then we may (MAY) believe you. Until then your words mean nothing.

Muslims, just like every single person on this planet, need to be saved into the Church of Jesus Christ. With faith, love, and testimony it is entirely possible for many Muslims to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. It is harder to love someone, than it is to hate them. Hate is the lazy man's out. The LORD has brought many foreigners to our shores, and we need to realize that they are here to be saved, but it is up to us to get up off from our spiritual butts and do it.

“nothing wrong with being a Muslim.” Ellison

Keith: Sure there is.
Your denial is just another example of your mental illness, shared by all your wacky fellow ideologists.
Following September 11, 2001, a majority of prominent muslims insisted that muslims played no part in the flying of jet liners into the World Trade Center.
At the same time, the same muslims claimed it to be a great victory for Islam.
You muslims think they can suspend reality, as it suits you. Like Democrats.
You believe that when the facts don’t support their position, the facts can be ignored or changed.
Muslims think the novel `Nineteen EightyFour’ was a civic primer for good government.
Well, you’re all crazier than s***-house rats, Keith.
Do the world a favor: convince all of your fellow muslims to shoot themselves this weekend.
The world will be a much better place.
Sincerely,
td

There’s nothing wrong with Islam that couldn’t be solved with a few thermonuclear weapons.

Other than that, it’s completely worthless, as are the people who follow it.

And it’s not even a religion.

“There’s nothing wrong with being a Muslim”

Yes there is. Islam has no redeeming value of any kind. Its the only religion that does not espouse a higher purpose. Why not just say you are a commnist and leave the religious overtones out of it? Oh wait then you wouldn’t be able to marry a 9 year old, beat her up at will and then go hang with the dancing boys.

Where do start?
There is nothing wrong with being a muslim if you are an adult male that relishes oppression torture and death. However if you are a women or a child that does not enjoy being oppressed tortured or killed hen you may have some issues with being a muslim.
If you believe following a pedophile prophet is a good thing then you might like being a muslim.
If you believe nail bombs on a bus load of children is how to promote your religion then you might like being a muslim.

There is nothing RIGHT about being a Muslim.

Unless you approve of public whippings, amputatuions and stonings, believe women are the property of the male members of their family, feel slavery is O.K. for “unbelievers”, want to opppress out of existance or kill anyone who refuses to convert to your peculiar form of madness, think dogs are “unclean”, dancing and music are verboten, ancient statuary and other historic relics should be destroyed, etc. etc.

Yeah. There is nothing WRONG with being a Muslim - MY BUTT!!!

This ellison fellow is a fool...those in Minnesota who elected him are pie-in-the-sky morons. Yes, there is something wrong with “being a moozlum”...EVERYTHING! Don’t people everywhere realize that moozlums want to kill you and your family if you’re not a moozlum? Sometimes, in their usual fits of rage they will kill moozlums. Great “religion” there...just great. Quite the “civilization”...no?

Yes, there is something wrong with being a Muslim, as millions of innocent voices would cry out from their graves, if they could. Islam is terrorism, hidden behind robes and veils and religion. Islam is antagonistic to Western liberalism, Democracy and individualism. It isn’t a system of values and morals instilled from the inside to build good character and citizens, but one forced on its victims and willing slaves. It is wrong to be a Muslim, and Ellison should repent immediately.

Muslims are slaughtering Christians in the Middle East and Africa. Muslims hate the existence of Israel and they hate and kill Jews whenever they get the opportunity. Ellis should tell the Muslim Brotherhood to go to hell be with Allah.

No, there is something wrong with mooslims, Islame is a threat to the very fabric of this nation, what Ellison fails to mention is that his religion was given a chance by God only to have Moohamad fail to convince the pagans to give up all of their idols. Allah is satan, Islam is satanism, it’s why they worship the inferior light of the moon. It’s about time these snakes like Ellison and Castro get called out on their hatred for this nation, their veiled attempts to hide behind minority status while the conspire to destroy this nation must not be tolerated by Republicans nor the media! I’ll never forget 9/11 nor that so called Arab American holding a sign at this years DNC convention furiously denouncing Jerusalem be named the capitol of Israel, that racist and Ellison are the true face of Islam.

“‘There’s Nothing Wrong With Being a Muslim” If you don’t care where you spend eternity.

1Timothy 2:3 thru 5 “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all...”

Ellison: ‘There’s Nothing Wrong With Being a Muslim

Nothing? What a fool. Islam the blood cult that preaches and teaches it's followers: How to build, wear and explode suicide vests... sorry only one to a customer. How to beat your wife into submission. The joys of fighting Christians, Jews and so-called "infidels" and dying for Allah in Jihad so that they can enter the perverse, pornographic Muslim "paradise" where they are promised perpetual hard-ons so that they can screw their 72 nubile doe-eyed virgins, and all the little boys they want, for all of eternity. The ecstasy of worshiping a black ROCK. The art of cutting off hands and feet and crucifying Christians, Jews and everyone else Shariah Law deems worthy of maiming or death. Muslim Greenie can lecture readers on the proper place of women, how to cut out their clitoris in order to keep them in line. How to rape "infidel women" who have the audacity to be out at night without a male escort or who are stupid enough to be out in public without a veil. The joy of having sex with your 9 year old child-bride". The best way to slit the throats of airline stewardesses and pilots using a simple box cutter. The most effective way to fly airlines into "Infidel" skyscrapers. How to slaughter multitudes of "Infidel" school children in the name of Allah. The sin and danger of eating bacon or having wine with a meal. The best way to kill pastors, bomb churches and lock Christians into churches and burn them all to death. The list of potential perverse Islamic Muslim atrocities and material is endless.

This idiot needs a history lesson... Winston Churchill's critique of Islam:

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”

Winston Churchill, The River War
