Religion is to Politics as Steak is to Vanilla Icing

Virginia Congressman Virgil Goode is in hot water for a letter sent to his constituents where he states:

"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. I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States if we do not adopt the strict immigration policies that I believe are necessary to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the United States of America."

Naturally, some people are upset and want him to apologize and he refuses. Blah, Blah, Blah, the usual. Here's what I want to know, use the Quran for what? Are people in Congress using a different "Book about Religion" for something that I don't know about? Because they aren't supposed to be. It is a little funny to me that nobody thought about this before (well, besides our Forefathers). If you open the door for mixing politics with religion, you open the door to mixing politics with ALL religions, even the one's you don't care for Mr. Goode. Separation of Church and State PROTECTS Religion and Government, and maybe it would serve us well to remember that today's majority could be tomorrow's minority, faster than you can say 2006 Midterm Elections.

Holy SH** (no pun intended)
I can't believe he would not only admit to such heinous bigotry, but encourage it in others! and stand by it! Lord! How on Earth are we ever going to convince the rest of the planet we aren't backward imperialist idiots, if we keep electing backward, imperialist idiots?!

And thanks to the franking rights of elected representatives, that lovely piece of horse manure went on the tax-payer's dime.

Well, he does represent Appomattox and Lynchburg in Virginia. That's right, the site where the Northern aggressors finally prevailed and the place where Falwell still prevails. Did you know that in Appomattox, they have signs all around town reading "Where our country was reunited". What a load of horsesh**. Did you also know that at Liberty University, if a student is found to have visited a Planned Parenthood clinic (except to protest of course), they are expelled. Neat district, huh?

I'm also not sure how immigration will solve this "problem" since Ellison is well, NOT AN IMMIGRANT. What an asshole.

At first I think, is this even a controversy? Does anyone actually agree with him? Then i read things like captainadventures post and realize I forget that i live in a bit of bubble. I guess that can be seen as a good or a bad thing.

Just a glimpse at some reactions to Goode. NSFW, only in the sense that there are some sick sick bastards who think Goode is the new American Hero.
