Mayor of Lancaster CA: We have a Christian Community, Tells CAIR to Take a Walk!

Just a few days ago Lancaster City Councilwoman Sherry Marquez spoke out against Islam. Today we see the Mayor of Lancaster take a stand for Christianity, and against CAIR. There must be something good in the water over there!

Muslim group irked by ‘Christian’ comment

LANCASTER, CA – The mayor of Lancaster, California, is being criticized for telling residents that their town is a growing Christian community and they should be proud of that.

Mayor R. Rex Parris made the remarks at the end of his annual State of the City address last week.

The Greater Los Angeles area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has denounced the comments. The chapter says it plans to file a civil rights complaint with the U.S. Justice Department. Executive director Hussam Ayloush says elected officials shouldn’t be using their public positions to impose their religious beliefs.

Mayor Parris told the Los Angeles Times that he had no such intentions and says he won’t apologize.

Lancaster is about 40 miles northeast of Los Angeles.

Please give the Mayor’s office a call of support. The contact information can be found HERE. Thanks!

    Mayor, I stand in agreement with you and the Christian community of Lancaster. God keep you all in the Hollow of His Hand.

    We let them come to our country, and now they are trying to tell us what our elected officials can and cannot say. How does his statement "impose" religious beliefs on anyone? They just want to stifle him, and stifle any objections to their seditious activities here.

      I grew up in parts of the Philippines where there are Muslims. All I know is that, unlike other religious groups, where there are Muslims there will be trouble…sooner or later.

    Geez, I'm not even a Christian anymore, but I stand with Parris like every other religious and non-religious group in the area that didn't take offense.

    These people must be stopped. They also must be taught some manners. Johnnycomelatelys got a lot of nerve causing a rukus like this. These people are hyper-aggressive in everything. Such a sense of entitlement when Christians are being killed and persecuted in their lands.

    I am all for Parris and his position. The only concern I have it that muslims would likewise try and move their political agenda in places like Dearbornistan and Hamtramckistan, MI, where they are in sizable numbers.

    Sad that the situation in our great nation is deteriorating so fast with respect to islam, and yet most of the public is blissfully unaware of what is happening around us.

      Unfortunately they are already doing that.

    They know our laws, we don't know their laws. __Sharia does not allow them to use our courts just like we can't use their courts.

    I sent Mayor Parris and Council Member Marquez a supportive e-mail, the "Call to Action" and "Liberty vs Sharia" and a link to Sharia-Free America ( http://www.shariafree.wordpress.com ). They will undoubtedly come under additional pressure from CAIR, et al.

    Funny as our federal government caves to sharia, local governments STAND UP.

    Good man. Hope they have the courage to stick with it!

    Yes, I have also written to their office to support them. Thanks for the links.

  11. February 3, 2010 at 7:19 pm

    So, Hussam Ayloush is going to get the US Government to support his religious believes. "If the camel once gets his nose in the tent, his body will soon follow."

    Sorry I met to say, So, Hussam Ayloush is going to get the US Government to support his religious beliefs.

    "If the camel once gets his nose in the tent, his body will soon follow."

    Say no to Shari'ah Law in the United States of America…..

    Glad to see people respond when the time is needed:

    "The Honorable Mayor R. Rex Parris

    Thank you and may I say GOOD FOR YOU and the city of Lancaster. Good, because they have a leader such as you that can stand up and tell CAIR to take a hike. If you can do it, all of our leaders can do it.
    What the majority of Americans fail to understand is that Islam, through CAIR and many other Islamic organizations are trying to undermine our society and culture.
    They are trying to stifle our freedom of speech, and this is how they do it.
    I didn’t hear any muslim group come out and complain when Obama let loose his gaff about America being a muslim country…did you?
    So stick to your guns…don’t apologize. You said nothing that needs an apology.
    Great work sir!!

    Your friend on the East Coast,"

    Mayor, you are a hero. Please stand firm. Muslims are simply intimidators and are recklessly attacking the truth.

    Way to go Lancaster!
    We ought to demand that Obama apologize for stating we are a Muslim country.
    Islam is not compatible with Freedom or our culture. No more Islamic immigration and deport all Muslims and their families who plot against our country and our Freedom!

    • February 4, 2010 at 6:30 pm

      Thanks for all of the support guys, I am going to send this link to his office.

    A lot of Muslim Haters here. I wonder what Jesus would say about that?

    • admin

      I doubt very much that Jesus would of approved of Islam, and Christianity is not about getting walked all over. Past Popes that fought Islam head on proved that.
