The scare-tactics are in full-force this midterm election season, with anti-Muslim rhetoric being at the top of the list for some GOP candidates. This takes a step back to look at the ridiculousness being perpetuated by some GOP candidates on the basis of religion, and how Muslim Americans are impacted by it.

“Mosque/Community Center–which I think is today’s Viet-NAM vs Viet-NOM–is considered by some to be a “bad idea”. Don’t let a place of worship be built where they blah blah blah. My question to you: Hiroshima: Bad place to build a Christian Church?” asked by justinwasson via Formspring.

Opposition is mounting to the “Burn a Koran Day” scheduled for September 11th in Florida. President Obama today condemned the event, urging Pastor Terry Jones to cancel. General David Petraeus said it could harm our troops, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called it unrepresentative of Americans. Attorney General Eric Holder called it “idiotic and dangerous,” and the Vatican has called the planned demonstration “outrageous and grave.”

But as the controversy surrounding the plan to build a mosque in Lower Manhattan continues to intensify along political and religious lines, our national discussion increasingly points the way to a much dimmer future.

Franklin Graham, son of the Reverend Billy Graham, tells us how to evaluate Barack Obama’s claims of being a Christian. Although Barack was, according to Graham, born a Muslim, because he got that “seed” from Dad, we can’t question when Barack says he’s a Christian. Phew!
