The Quran

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: Pop quiz

Read the Quran and tell me if you think ITS views jive at all with our constitution. Islam is a political religion, unlike the other relgions that are personal. Islam is all about politics. Are there any officially Christian states or officially Buddhist states or Hindi states? I don't think there are. (Vatican City, I'll give that one.) Are there any constitutions that mandate that only a Christian can hold office, or a Buddhist or a Jew? I don't think so. But check out the constitutions of Islamic states.

They're called "Islamic" states for a reason. They follow Islamic teachings as put forth in the Quran and Mohammed. I don't think Obama is Muslim, and if he was and converted, good for him and I'm fine with it. But a practicing Muslim can simply not uphold the constitution of the United States of America. The two contradict each other. If you live long enough you'll probably see Britain and Belgium and Denmark and even Norway and Spain become Islamic states because Muslimjs will some day be a majority and islamicize all of all of Europe through the ballot box until Islamic states and sharia has wiped out the Eurpeon culture. It'll happen...someday. Do you want that to happen to America?
