Update on the Imams
Over at Commondreams.org Amy Goodman has an excellent piece called It's Bigotry That Should Be Silenced, which ran in yesterday's Seattle Post-Intelligencer. It's an outstanding commentary on the issue of the imams and other bigotry that's been shown toward American Muslims and those of us who do not tow the republican line.
What's next? Jailing Catholic nuns for wearing "disguises," or praying over "mystery beads?" Or locking up some Lutheran for reading from a bible while flying back to Nebraska? On the other hand I wish someone had locked up (anti-Catholic and gay-hater) State Senator and Congresswoman-elect Michele Bachmann for assaulting with prayer gay members of the legislature at their desks in an effort to turn them straight.
