You’re all upset that the voters of one of the United States have sent a Muslim to congress? You say Islam is a terror cult, not a “real” religion? You say you’ve never heard of a religion where devotees carry weapons and have “hit squads”? Read history!
War gods who favor the tribe that worships them are the most popular form of religion, historically. Most of the Old Testament is a “My God can beat up your god” story. Capturing and torturing and sacrificing enemies was the main form of worship in Mayan and Aztec cultures. Ever hear of the Assassins? Of Ninjas?
The Catholic Church burned an entire town of 7,000 people, saying “Kill them all, God will sort out the innocents from the guilty Heretics”. Nobody around was keeping count, of course, but many historians think that more people have been killed by Christians than any other religion. I believe this is true, although I am personally a Christian and try to follow Christ’s teaching of “turn the other cheek”.
The issue of this Islamic politician shouldn’t upset you. If the people don’t like him, they won’t vote for him again in two years. It’s that simple. If you want something to be upset about, why not the fact that this current American Administration is putting in place an override of constitutional democracy? They are closing the borders. They are monitoring the phones and computers of people who disagree with them.
Free speech and assembly, habeas corpus, trial by jury — all slated for extinction. If you understand from History that “Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely”, you will recognize this as the first stage of tyranny. Forget about a lone Islamic legislator. What about the right to elect legislators, and to expect that the laws they pass will be faithfully executed?
