More Bigotry from the Right

Keith Ellison is a Muslim. He is also a newly-elected member of the United States Congress.

In an incredibly stupid and grossly misleading column, wingnut Dennis Prager shits himself over the Congressman-elect's desire to swear his oath on a book that means something to him -- the Koran. In doing so, he gets almost everything wrong -- he falsely says this will be the first time anyone has ever taken the oath on anything but a bible, he falsely says that "America" decides what book an lected official can swear on, and he can't stop before trudging out the Hitler comparison and wondering 'if the Koran is okay, what's next, Mein Kampf?' I am not going to link to this loser asshole's tripe -- you can find it if you really want to poison your mind with it.

Better, take in Sean Aqui's smackdown of Prager.

What few people are mentioning is that many Jewish members of Congress use their Bible (Old Testament) during their swearing in ceremonies...
