WASHINGTON — In an interview with Salon Magazine, Rep. Keith Ellsion from Minnesota, the country’s first Muslim congressman, called GOP presidential candidate, Herman Cain, a religious bigot for his recent comments about banning Mosques to stop Sharia law.
“It seems like a week doesn’t go by without Cain saying something incredibly offensive, so I can only guess that he’s doing it on purpose,” said Ellison. “He’s probably figured out that he can get headlines if he says something really ugly, so he doesn’t disappoint.”
This is ridiculous and has no foundation in American law. In fact, the U.S. Constitution says Congress shall make no law establishing a religion and shall not abridge the exercise thereof. He runs right into the First Amendment. But the larger question is, why is he trying distinguish himself as the religious bigot of the presidential race of 2011 and 2012
