No Separation of Mosque and State

(Thanks to BobG. at Sweet Spirits of Ammonia for this.)

Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan) has always found new and creative ways to offend. He has outdone himself with this resolution whereby he seeks to defend the Koran.

I was under the impression that we had separation of Church and State. Wasn`t judge Roy Moore forced to remove the Ten Commandments from his courthouse down in Alabama? Aren`t Christmas manger displays anathema? For that matter, weren`t we supposed to accept with good cheer such cutting edge artistry as a crucifix in a bucket of urine, or an icon of the Blessed Virgin covered with elephant dung? Why, I believe we were even told we had to pay for the privelege with taxpayer dollars! That is the cost of freedom, or so we`ve been told.

We can`t even protect our flag, much less symbols of the Christian and Jewish faiths! Mr. Conyers has always been on the front lines in all of these fights, but now it seems Islam is deserving of special treatment.

Mr. Conyers is, of course, very partial to special treatment. Every year, he introduces a bill calling for reparations for slavery. Now, I don`t know a single slave in these United States, nor anyone who can even remember anyone who was a slave. The institution of slavery ended 140 some odd years ago. Yet that doesn`t stop old Carpet Bagger Conyers from trying to pilfer money from the pockets of whites who happen to maintain residence in this country. (There are many white people whose ancestors came to America after the Civil War, but who cares? They`re the wrong color so let`s gouge `em!) At the same time, Mr. Conyers is fighting to reinstate voting rights for criminals serving time in prison. Are you beginning to see a pattern here? Conyers has two sets of rules, which he applies based on his personal preference.

The unfortunate thing is that John Conyers is no longer the radical fringe of the Democrat Party. There was a time when the Democrats would have seen him for what he is; a frothing-at-the-mouth wacko and bottom feeder. There was a time when the statesmen in the Democrat Party would have been embarrassed by him (much like the Republicans had been embarrassed by David Duke). This can no longer be said-the John Conyers types now occupy the center of the party.

If Mr. Conyers is willing to fight for the Koran, maybe I can get my Bible back?

Good catch, Tim.

I believe I've read that MOST of the people in American today are descendents of people who came here after the Civil War.

Gary b's comment is interesting and likely true.
However, my Irish ancestors came about 1848 and my Cherokee ancestors about 10,000 years before that.
Nary a one of them, to the best of my knowledge, ever owned a slave -- although the Paddies probably lived a life as hard as or harder than many of the cotton-planting slaves.
And those ancestors who fought for the good guys in the War for Southern Independence didn't own any slaves, either.
They were fighting because, as was stated so eloquently in the John Wayne-Rock Hudson movie, "The Undefeated," the Yankee invaders were on our land.
