I’m no fan of Islam, however if they are citizens they have every right to the Constitution I do. Obviously if they are advocating a violent overthrow then that’s a cause for worry..but muslims have the same rights and protections under the ENTIRE Constitution that all other citizens of this nation do. This guy needs to go back to civics class.
Comments by Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey suggesting that Islam might be a cult and that Muslims might not qualify for constitutionally guaranteed religious freedoms drew criticism from Islamic groups Tuesday and an eruption of national media attention.Ramsey, a Republican candidate for governor, said at a mid-July campaign event in Chattanooga that he is “all about freedom of religion,” which is guaranteed by the First Amendment.FAITH & REASON: Church to burn Quran”But you cross the line when they start trying to bring Sharia law into the United States,” he said. “Now you could even argue whether being a Muslim is actually a religion, or is it a nationality, a way of life or cult, whatever you want to call it? We do protect our religions, but at the same time, this is something that we are going to have to face.”
