    :BangHead: WASHINGTON - A Virginia congressman has warned that "many more Muslims" will be elected demanding to use the Quran unless immigration is tightened. Republican Rep. Virgil Goode made the comment in a letter to constituents who had written in about Congressman-elect Keith Ellison's decision to use the Quran at his ceremonial swearing-in.
    "I do not subscribe to using the Koran in any way," Goode wrote.

    I'm under the impression that if this guy were a congressman during the 1800s, he would have been opposed to my German ancestors coming here.

    Well I do agree that we should tighten our immigration laws or at least enforce the ones we got.
    What Goode is doing is fear mongering, hey if it works for the President it ought to work well for any red blooded American neo-con

    The anti-nativists used to be called "Know-nothings." Apparently Virgil figures that if he doesn't like it, it has to be anti-American.

    Which certainly qualifies him.

    And, as part of the Iriquois nation in the 1600's he certainly would have been opposed to the British and French ancestors coming here.

    Well, I agree with him & he's right. I also agree we need to get rid of the "diversity" visas. We have enough diversity. We used to be a melting pot but no longer.

    The British, French, and German ancestors some of you have referred to pretty had a Judeo-Christian heritage and believed in the Bible. Comparing them to Quran users is like comparing meat to dairy products, not even like comparing apples to oranges (because apples and oranges are both fruits).

    I have no idea what my German ancestors believed. I don't know if they were Christians or not. Back in 1980, a TV preacher (I think it was Jerry Falwell) stated that America is for those with a Judeo-Christian heritage. I commented to my mother, "I guess that means if you're a Buddhist or a Hindu, you have no business being here." Mom got mad at the TV preacher and said, "Hey! America is for everybody!" :godisgood:

    It is regrettable that we cannot look upon legal immigration as an opportunity to witness -- that we will not accept the very people to whom we send foreign missionaries.

    Are we so fearful of their ability to convert, or is it fear of our lack of ability to spread God's word in a land where the majority adore and worship Him.

    Are we so certain that our powers of persuasion will fail that we must not allow unbelievers to enter?

    The muslim immigrants are coming to America as missionaries for islam with the intent to islamitize the world, including the USA. Some of their own leaders have stated they intend to fly the flag for allah over the White House. It is not "just" a religious agenda, it is a political agenda, as well, and they are actively recruiting converts for islam in our universities, prisons, and communities.

    As far as acceptance, we have been more than accepting of them, yet they choose for the most part to not assimilate and become part of the melting pot of America. Their political ideology prevents that, and if anyone views islam as "just another religion, or that this issue is solely about religion" then they don't understand the history of islam or the goals of islamic domination.

    How many foreign "missionaries" do we send to muslim countries? Very few, and certainly they don't declare they are Christian missionaries if they do venture to go there, because Christian missionaries are not permitted to proselytize in muslim countries. It is against their laws and their religion. The poor Christians who do live in those countries, the nationals, including ex-muslims, are tortured, beaten, and murdered. Furthermore, how many missionaries do you know who are allowed to go to muslim countries and announce openly that they intend to overthrow the islamic governments of those countries? If not by conversion to Christianity, then by the sword?

    Try reading about Cappadocia some time - when muslims took over in Turkey, early Christians literally had to live their lives entombed underground. Some say, as many as 20,000 Christians lived underground - the ones who weren't killed.

    Nearly any country in the world where islam has invaded, either by major immigration until they become dominant in numbers, or by conquering by the sword, Christians have been slaughtered and tortured by the thousands if not millions - and the brutality of islam continues to this very day.

    Islam will eventually take over the world for about 7 years, though. I am convinced it is the religion of the anti-Christ.

    Goode is a bigot. Besides, Ellison is a native-born American.

    Oh, c'mon. People were saying the same thing about communism not that many years ago, that it will take over the world and that it was the religion of the anti-Christ. There were numerous books in religious bookstores detailing how communisim was going to rule the world, blah, blah, blah.

    If it is, is it not within God's will that the anti-Christ rule this earth?

    And if not, shouldn't we still use their being here as an opportunity to witness? Even if Muslim's don't assimilate (what a Borg term!), meet them in the workplace, in their community, in our community to show Christ.

    Don't they number about the same as books stating the Catholic church was the anti-Christ?

    As usual I messed it up and can't correct it.
    How do I edit the hypertext hidden by the link below?
    It points back to the topic that I'm in :(

    Consider this thread when I'm posting and
    this thread:

    More Troops Going to Iraq?

    I have a solution for both problems:

    Melting was never instant or total.

    Your analogy works against your argument as we need dairy as well as meat, apples as well as oranges for a healthy diet.

    During the 1980s, I think the books detailing how communism was to rule the world as part of Bible prophecy outnumbered the anti-Catholic books. Jack Chick is still virulently anti-Catholic. Books critical of Mohammad and Muslims in general have replaced the ones about communism taking over. Among them were books about Saddam Hussein and Iraq with a prophecy theme.
    It seems as if some people absolutely HAVE to have an enemy, whether it's Catholics, Muslims, commies, etc., as a part of their end times world view.

    Sounds as though it changes about every generation. While I do believe Al Qaeda is a threat to the economic health of the US, and that there are Muslims supporting it, I do not see the connection to Keith Ellison -- any more than I can see the connection between Eric Rudolph and my Sunday School lessons.

    God's people never need evil as part of their 'diet.' Every time that God's people have made that mistake - He has judged them severely.
