    Muslims have the "inside" with the Executive Branch of our government.

    Old BB Thread

    Old BB Thread

    Muslims are also putting pressure on the Legislative Branch of our government.

    New BB thread about CAIR and Congress

    So the thought occurred to me this evening...

    Will the last Bush Supreme Court nominee before he leaves office be a Muslim? This is the third and remaining Branch of US Government to not have apparent Islamic influence. It's only a matter of time.

    It will not surprise me if and when it happens. And the Muslim SCOTUS appointee will be approved by both Republicans and Democrats in the name of political correctness.

    LE,

    Personally, I think it is a long, long way off. I don't know of any even in lower state or federal courts (there may be some, but I haven't heard of any). But we do share a belief in the danger of CAIR and its influences, a realization I wish more here shared.

    A Muslim will not be appointed to the SCOTUS in the next decade. Interesting question, though. It would signal a great change in our nation's power system.

    MP, of course it won't be a religious test. The religion will never be "officially" considered. Thus, it will fall within the parameters of the Constitution.

    Are Muslims pro life or pro choice?

    Who cares if it is or isn't, so long as the person can faithfully interpret the Constitution.
    Again, who cares, so long as the person can faithfully interpret the Constitution.

    I believe the most common official position is first trimester pro-choice, second and third pro-life.

    Cyberdove, you commit a fallacy of painting with a broad brush. Muslims are not all terrorists, nor do they all condone suicide bombing.

    I thank God that I think about the lost, God, His Word, the church, and sometimes a young lady.

    I must ask, why would you sit around and dream about an islamic supreme court?

    If the best man/woman for the job is a Muslim I would hope the POTUS would obey the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that prevents discrimination based on religion for employment.

    Gold Dragon, I agree with you. But there is nothing about the way we are doing it today that is based on qualificaiton it is all partison now.
    besides, I don't think that law applies like you are using it. It is in our constitution to discriminate when it comes to govenmental posistions. For instance, natrualized citizens of foriegn origins arn't allowed to be President, ever. And we have age restrictions on all congressmen and senators, as well as president. I doubt if you cold apply it to a presidential appointment, which is what a supreme court nominee is.

    I am glad to seet that "sexual oriention' and "gender identity' is not in there. At least we can still keep transvestites of the supreme court.

    I agree that there are some exceptions to dicrimination laws that are explicitly spelled out. I don't believe there are any spelled out for SCOTUS positions although I wouldn't be surprised if the citizens thing applied there too.

    It was written in the 1960s. Since most states have those criteria included in their discrimination law, it is just a matter of time before a federal one comes in existence. I see no reason why a transvestite could not honestly interpret US law.

    "Cyberdove, you commit a fallacy of painting with a broad brush. Muslims are not all terrorists, nor do they all condone suicide bombing."------------------------------------

    You are right, it is only a fraction of their total population -ABOUT 10 MILLION.

    But then again, you would not know that if you had been in Palastine on 9/11 when the MASSES went into to the streets and celebrated.

    But don't let that fool you, because our PC and multicultural folks assure us the middle eastern Muslims really want what is best for us. Just ignore all that talk about America being "the great Satan". But this is what the multiculturist think to, Is it not? :rolleyes:

    It seems not long ago that this same arguement was going on about Jewish judges, Catholic judges, black judges, and even Italian judges.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Who cares, so long as the person can faithfully interpret the Constitution?

    I don't think America is the great satan.

    cyberdove, yes you committed a fallacy. I saw just today where you can't say a certain teaching is from satan, therefore you can't say a certain religious group is from satan.

    If I were American I would have NO problem with a Muslim being in the Supreme Court...so long as they interpret the Constitution correctly and do not try to bring in Muslim laws. Their job is not to pass laws but to interpret existing laws right?
