I was all set to go to bed and get some much needed rest, when on Paula Mooneys blog, I saw a post about Pat Robertson and his predictions of 2007 ( this topic is way to heavy for me to talk about right now, I am afraid I may have nightmares so I will discuss tomorrow, but you can read Paula’s post here ) and half way down the post she wrote was a statement that grabbed my attention. Seems that Rep Elect Ellison will be using a Koran to be sworn in with! This is a copy that was owned by the man who wrote our Constitution, Thomas Jefferson; which will be taken out of the Library of Congress for the ceremony and returned right after the ceremony is completed.
What is the problem? I may draw huge fire for this, but I feel that my country was made and given grace by My God, none other. And to use anything but a bible in the ceremony as we are now is changing the historic background of our country. And , seems to me that our freedoms and laws that the Muslim seems to want to take away from me, are the very same that are allowing this travesty to occur!
My country- which does not allow the Ten Commandments in public places or where it is truly needed – in schools. My country- that has asked that we not use Merry Christmas, my country who my sons are serving now. I want my bible given back its place of honor in our country, NOW.
You keep giving these groups the means to bring us down, when you say we can not adhere to, nor use the very laws that made us great!
