Congressman pisses off Muslims

Wednesday, December 20, 2006

(SNN San Jose) Virginia Congressman Virgil Goode Jr. released a letter to his constituents warning that more Congressmen would request to be sworn in on the Koran unless he would be able to enact strict immigration policies preventing legal immigration from the Middle East.

The letter was specifically sent to constituents who contacted Goode about Congressman Keith Ellison, D-Minn, who wished to be sworn in on the Koran as he is a Muslim.

Goode can trace his American roots back to 1742, when his ancestor Muhammad Al-Zhari Goode arrived in the Virginia colony, threw down his prayer rug and bowed to the East. He considers anyone whose family arrived after the American Revolution an immigrant.

In his letter, Goode said, “When I raise my hand to take the oath on Swearing In Day, I will have the Bible in my other hand.” In fact, Goode always has a bible in his off hand, except when he is wrapping himself in the flag, which is a two handed exercise.

In addition, Goode spoke about his subscriptions. “I do not subscribe to using the Koran in any way.” However, the Congressman does subscribe to The Islamist and Jihadist Monthly.

Good believes that immigration must be reformed so that more Muslims will not become elected officials. Goode considers himself the perfect man to reform immigration. He is quite firm on the cause of America’s immigration woes: President Clinton.

What they should swear in on is the U.S. Constitution and that pesky little Bill of Rights thingie.
Life is like a can of mixed nuts. Another nut has risen to the top, and it's the voters that put him there.

I wouldn't swear anything on either of those books. But I wouldn't be a politician either. The system running this country is just bullshit and smoke screens.
BBC is right. Having anyone swear to anything is silly. The honor system broke a long time ago.
oh yeah...

Fight evil with Funk!
