Of course sharia law has been instituted in Europe. Hasn’t everyone noticed that all the women on the beaches of southern France are now required to wear burkas?

At least he’s open about his bigotry and ignorance. He might be a tool, but anyone who votes for him will know exactly where he stands.

Cain gave an interview to Christianity Today…

Oh shit, just stop right there. Is life so teh hard they can only communicate agendas and express ideas through sympathetic religious magazines? And then, how is this superior to how other religions operate? Should I be more afraid of Muslims in government than Christian fundies who’ve already made their bid for an oppressive stoneage theocracy and contempt for the Constitution absolutely crystal clear?

Pot, meet kettle. And then go fuck off, you sanctimonious ass.

There is no way that this dim bulb will ever have “an administration” so we don’t need to get too worried about him.

I understand he wants to enjoy his retirement in peace and stay out of the public eye but I’d love to see George W. Bush condemn his party’s growing Islamaphobia. Bush had a Muslim man serve as his ambassador to the UN. Same guy had also been ambassador to Afghanistan & Iraq.

Anti-American, the lot of them.

The Founding Fathers and Islam

In his seminal Letter on Toleration (1689), John Locke insisted that Muslims and all others who believed in God be tolerated in England. Campaigning for religious freedom in Virginia, Jefferson followed Locke, his idol, in demanding recognition of the religious rights of the “Mahamdan,” the Jew and the “pagan.” Supporting Jefferson was his old ally, Richard Henry Lee, who had made a motion in Congress on June 7, 1776, that the American colonies declare independence. “True freedom,” Lee asserted, “embraces the Mahomitan and the Gentoo (Hindu) as well as the Christian religion.”

I don’t know what to make of this. On the one hand, I think it’s great that those guys were much ahead of their time and on the other hand, I think it’s pathetic that a candidate of a major party is engaging in this.

Actually, what is more worrisome (as Steve Benen points out) is that Mitt Romney has actually said the same thing. More than once. So this is a mainstream Republican position.

How is this different from a white candidate saying he wouldn’t allow blacks in his admin? It’s not yet somehow that would cause more outrage than this will.

Would this be news if instead he said he wouldn’t appoint an atheist?

re: #4 elizajane

But, he will be in GOP debates saying stuff like this, pushing the real candidates to prove they are not “soft” on Islam.

This is as black and white an example of the degradation of the Republican Party in recent years as you will get.

Where is George W on all of this? Clinton continues to be outspoken past his presidency about a number of topics, truthers, birthers, etc. I thought Dubya was supposed to have bigger hangy downy parts.

It’s great that Bush I, Bush II and Clinton can get together when it comes to Haiti relief and that sort of thing. But that’s a no brainer. Good stuff, for sure, but Dubya had a very diverse cabinet. Race, creeds, colors, religions and gender mixes.

Maybe the GOP is done with him at this point, but I think if he stood up, slapped them in their “symbolic faces” a few times, it could go a long way to stopping this outward racism which seems to be on the road for fast becoming the way we communicate.

Sorry. I missed your comment, but you’re right on the money.
