For years after 911 the comments that I read online about Islam, were overwhelmingly in support of the religion. But over the last few years that has changed, as more and more of us have been educated, and are speaking out against threat of Islam. Thankfully even some of our politicians are not following the company line that “Islam is a religion of peace”, and are fighting back against Sharia Law. First Louisiana banned Sharia from being used in their courts, then Oklahoma Rep. Duncan called for a preemptive strike on Sharia, and today we learn that Lt. Governor Ramsey is willing to fight Sharia as well. Obviously we need a lot more politicians like him, so please contact him and let him know we are with him. His contact information can be found HERE.
Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey Questions Whether Islam is a Religion
Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, a Republican competing in the GOP gubernatorial primary, said on July 14th that he is unsure if Islam is really a religion, suggesting that it could be a “cult.”
As TPM DC, which reported on the video after it was posted by the Nashville Scene, notes, Islam is the world’s second-largest religion.
Asked about the “threat invading our country from Muslims,” Ramsey first said that he is “all about freedom of religion,” proclaiming fealty to the first amendment to the Constitution. But he went on to add that “you cross the line when they start bringing Sharia Law in the state of Tennessee, the United States.”
“Now, you could even argue whether being a Muslim is actually a religion, or is it a nationality, way of life, a cult, whatever you want to call it,” Ramsey said. “But certainly we do protect our religions, but at the same time, this is something we are going to have to face.”
