It’s getting tougher to be a Republican in some parts of the country while also fully accepting the practice of Islam.
In Tennessee, an incumbent in the U.S. House found herself on the defensive after being called soft on Shariah law, the code that guides Muslim beliefs and actions. And the state’s governor has been forced to explain why he hired a Muslim.
Lee Douglas, a dentist just south of Nashville and an anti-Shariah activist, points to the Muslim woman hired in Tennessee’s economic development office as evidence of an “infiltration” of Islam in government. Douglas helped draft a resolution criticizing the governor and Islam. A version of the document has been signed by a growing list of GOP executive committees, from rural counties to the state’s wealthiest.
Conservative bullies target individual Muslims. Apparently, having a Muslim on staff, even in the seemingly banal position of “economic development office,” is the new black baby. Keeping it classy, there, Republicans. Real classy.
King Arthur: Because of supernatural elements and lack of historical evidence we accept the majority of this story to be myth, although there may have been a person Arthur’s character was based upon.
Bible: In sprite of supernatural elements and lack of historical evidence Christians accept the majority of this story to be historically accurate, even though there’s even less evidence for a person named Jesus or Moses upon which the stories were based.
During the 9/11 search and rescue and recovery, two beams that were found were connected in the form of a cross. It became a symbol of hope (just like the flag that stood in the rubble) for the rescuers.
It is now on display in the 9/11 memorial with other artifacts.
Buuuuut…….one of those…
FUck, I just hate all these atheists coming in with their Constitution and their ideals upon which the country was founded and their understanding of how secular principals in government is actually beneficial for all religions because they’re just really draggin me down. I can’t fucking believe they’re making me confront my illusions by forcing me to acknowledge that not every single person in America believes in the particularly narrow vision of God that I do. It’s so unfair! Why can’t I just go on marginalizing everyone who is not exactly like me and, at the same time, using their tax dollars to actively promote my religious superstitions!? WAH!
