Quran Bigot Alert!

Although, Virginia has one of the largest and most diverse populations of Muslims in this country, it also has some of the most virulent fear mongers in this country. Rep. Virgil Goode distributed a letter to Virginia residents that said that because newly elected congressman Keith Ellison's use of the Quran for taking the oath of office is a realization of terrorist and will lead to more Muslims in national offices. This man has is either a blatant bigot or he is as crazy as a soup sandwich (most likely a combination of the two). If rep. Ellison's election is the realization of terrorist, then that means that his predominantly non-Muslim district that elected him are terrorists. As far as more Muslims being elected to national office, I'm for it. The elected officials are suppose to represent the people. Not just old, rich, Christian, White men. Islam is the second largest religion in this nation, and the fastest growing.
