This is just wrong.

I mean, REALLY?!?!  Come on, people …

From the American Family Association (Hat tip: Right Wing Watch)

No more Muslims in the US Military

Some choice quotes …

It it is time, I suggest, to stop the practice of allowing Muslims to serve in the U.S. military. The reason is simple: the more devout a Muslim is, the more of a threat he is to national security. Devout Muslims, who accept the teachings of the Prophet as divinely inspired, believe it is their duty to kill infidels. Yesterday’s massacre is living proof.  And yesterday’s incident is not the first fragging incident involving a Muslim taking out his fellow U.S. soldiers.

This is not Islamophobia, it is Islamo-realism.

{…}

The barbarians are no longer at the gate. They’re inside the fort, and it’s time for the insanity to stop.

First of all, I am resisting an urge to say “Pot, meet kettle” after reading that last statement.  May the Lord forgive me for even thinking that.

Secondly, if this were isolated, in and of itself, I would not be too incensed.  But when you find a major news organization strongly implying the same thing, even going so far as to suggest special screenings for Muslim members of our armed forces, and either implicitly or explicity saying that we have to watch out for the “scary Muslims” in our military, then this is too much.

Much more was said in the aftermath of this tragedy, but you’ll have to search the intertubes for yourself.

What happened at Fort Hood is a tragedy of senseless violence.  I grieve for the fallen and those who remain on this earth.   I pray they will all be reunited in the Resurrection.

To use that tragedy to point fingers at an entire segment of the population and imply that they’re loyalties to the nation are suspect is simply beyond the pale, even for these folks.

You are not alone. The good folk of Switzerland have just voted to ban the building of any more minarets on the basis that they express power and the desire to impose Sharia law.

My Arse!
