    When will the GOP learn that Muslim's can be American's also? Now here is a Representative from the red state of VA done gone and denounced a Muslim Representative and his constituents took his seat.

    Shame, shame, shame... :BangHead:

    That makes the final tally for the house 257 Dem to 178 GOP. Now if you want, you can start early denouncing the [email protected], blacks and Catholics so you can loose a few more seats in 2010. No need waiting till the last minute. There are plenty of other groups to call non-American's... :thumbs:

    Goode lost his mind when Ellison wanted to take his oath on the Koran. I don't know why you would attach his views to all GOPers, I thought that stuff was getting frowned on when the shoe was on the other foot.

    Goode was specifically against Muslim immigration. That makes him a bigot, so good riddance. If you can prove that represents the view of the whole party, then the gloating can stand. Until then, it's just you poking sticks at people.

    Because the GOP kept making an issue of saying Obama was Muslim.

    I have to agree with Curtis here. This kind of broadbrushing of an entire group of people is no more attractive brushing the GOP than it is brushing Democrats. I don't think the GOP losses as a whole were because the GOP as a group condemns Muslims.

    I wish we could stick to issues and the actions of individual politicians and stop the 'ALL so and so's do this and that' style of posting. That goes to both sides of the aisle by the way.

    The GOP did no such thing.

    Are you really a prophet?

    Aren't there principals of just judgements where by one should not judge a people based upon the actions of one or two?

    If there are, then about 90% of the posts in the politics forum violate the principle.

    Bro. I agree with you. That should have been a safe seat, I do not believe there are many Moslems in that part of the US.

    By the way, which is more important, what books is used when a person is being sworn in, or the character of the person?

    Look at all the "good folks" throughout our history who have sworn on the Bible and later been sent to jail for being corrupt. Did the governor of Illinois place his hand on the Bible when taking the oath of office? I expect so, but apparently it did not mean much.

    I'll go for character and not be particularly concerned about what book a person puts their hand on. Is Ellison a good fellwo? I do not know, but since he will be in the House of Representative, I hope so. Time will tell.

    It happens every day here on the Baptist Board. Republicans assume as a matter of course that everyone who voted for Obama supports abortion. That's not the case with me and most of the other moderates on the board. Let's take this example to heart.

    That reminds me when I was at Fort Hood. Our unit was havin party on the lake (in civillian clothes) and a young solider (a Christian) was wearing a T-shirt with the name of a well know beer in big letters. I said nothing, but he said "just beacuse I'm wearing this t-shirt, does not mean I drink"
    You know he was right, but does make you wonder.

    I agree 100% Brother, until now I have tried to be fair and stick to issues and people as issues. If we can safely say that one GOP's view on Muslims doesn't constitute every GOP's view on Muslims, why can't the same be accepted about abortion and other issues we discuss? Why is the undertone acceptable that a Christian who can vote for a pro-abortion candidate can't truly be a God fearing Christian and must wear the label of murderer? Where do I get this from, read this post from a thread. I see this stuff all the time and no one seems outraged when directed at me...

    @capro and Bro. Curtis = if you want, I can bring to view a slew of Obama is a Muslim threads that much support from the right. I don't know if your responses are a product of selective memory or do you really don't recall that being a main topic for a while.

    My apologies to the board for posting such a hate laced, judgmental thread but a person can only be called a murderer so many times before it gets to them. I likewise don't like being called an atheist because I voted for Obama like someone's on this boards signature line implies.

    I would like for a mod to please close this thread and I promise to play nicer if others can agree as Obama has said, "we can disagree without being disagreeable"...
