    I'm guessing he hasn't actually read the document he is taking the oath to defend:

    Amendment I (U.S. Constitution):

    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ..."

    Nobody is forcing any one to take the oath on the Quran. Ellison is CHOOSING to do this for himself, not FORCING all representative to.

    I also would like to know what does a Muslim born in Detroit, MI have to do with immigration reform?

    As a person who lives in his district, all I can say is that he represents his constitutents quite well. Around SWVA, many believe in his logic that all muslims are terrorist. On the wset.com message board there are more people defending Goode than opposing him. The arguments are all the same right wing rhetoric that America is for Americans and that everyone should believe in Christainity and that every muslim is a terrorist. What these people forget is that our constitution allows freedom of religion and Goode and his mindless right wing drones always seem to forget this. I wonder what the framers of the constitution would say to some one like Goode. I voted for his opponent and I always will till he is run out of office.

    What's wrong with him is that he's unfortunately decided to cash in (politically) on a wave of anti-islamic sentiment in most of the developed world today. I believe that Rep. Goode will rue the day he decided to attack Rep (elect) Ellison and give him victim-status. This is my belief so I don't have a reference to cite below.

    Nothing is wrong with him. He is the stereo-typical Republican who knows everything about nothing. The voters that elected a Muslim knew who they were voting for. The election of a Muslim shows that democracy is alive and well in the U.S. despite the bigotry shown by Rep. Goode. Thank you to the voters that saw through the fear and rhetoric and voted for the best person to represent them. THAT IS THE AMERICAN WAY.

    I can't believe there are people defending this idiot.

    Next he'll be saying you can't swear in with the Torah. Then he will say only the King James Version of the bible. Then women won't be allowed to vote. No veils for them, but they have to stay at home because they are subservient to men. Barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen!

    This kind of intolerance is unacceptable.

    Nothing is wrong with him.

    If more people would learn the true meaning of islam they too would agree.

    Their aim is to destroy the west and our values.

    I urge everyone to read Daniel Pipes or Robert Spencer.

    Do you want us to go down the same path as France, Belgium or even England?

    Not all muslims are terrorists but ALL terrorists are muslim
