Why the world hates us, another fine example

Virgil Goode, a Virginia congressman, is a deplorable human being. Go read the information at that link. I’ll wait.

For those of you that just want to get to it, Mr. Goode says this:

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 use of the Koran.

This was in a letter to one of his constituents, singed by him, on Congress stationery. He takes issue with Minnesota representative Keith Ellison’s wish to swear in on the Koran instead of the Bible. He takes this and makes it an issue of having “many more Muslim’s in the United States.”

First of all, what’s wrong with having more Muslim’s in the US you racist, religious zealot? Secondly, there is this thing called THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. That means no one should be forced to swear in with ANYTHING. If you want to swear in on a bible because it’s your faith, fine, but forcing others to, and ridiculing those that wish to do otherwise, is truly fucked up.

For this self-righteous religious prick to go on like he does is really what is wrong with religious zealotry. It has no place in our government. The fact that this redneck fuck actually represents people of this nation truly scares and disappoints me. What happened to messages of love and tolerance and peace?

Thanks to Mike for the heads up…
