Muslim Dem Rep. Ellison Blasts Paul Ryan For Trying to Unify With Trump

 

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) called out House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Thursday, questioning his efforts to unify the GOP by meeting with presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Ellison, the first Muslim elected to serve in Congress, has been an outspoken critic of Trump for his harsh rhetoric about members of his faith.

Ryan met with Trump in Washington on Thursday at Republican National Committee headquarters in an attempt to unify the party. He has not endorsed the presumptive nominee. Trump also had a meeting scheduled with Senate Republicans.

    Islamic religion says it all.

    • Iamacitizen2

      it’s not a religion it is an ideology.

      • Acecool

        You’re wrong.

        • DeOppressoLiber

          It is a Satanic cult.

          • Acecool

            Now that I can agree!

          • Iamacitizen2

            its both sounds good to me whatever it is it is from the dark side for sure

    that is why church and state is separate….I think you need to read the Constitution and sit down and shut up….

    • Iamacitizen2

      no where in the Constitution is there a clause that states: “church and state is separate”.

      • daisy65014

        “Separation of church and state” is a phrase used by Thomas Jefferson and others expressing an understanding of the intent and function of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States which reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

        The intent of this clause was to limit the power of the Federal Government in regard to religion thus ensuring freedom of religion in the United States of America.

        The phrase “separation of church and state” is generally traced to a January 1, 1802 letter by Thomas Jefferson, addressed to the Danbury Baptist Association in Connecticut, and published in a Massachusetts newspaper. Jefferson wrote,

        “ “I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.”[1]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Separation_of_church_and_state_in_the_United_States

      Not true! No where in the constitution is it written “Separation of Church and State”

      That’s an ongoing rumor spread by atheists.

      “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”

      Means exactly what it says! Congress has no right to determine what form of religion should have any respect over another. Lutheran, Baptist, Catholicism, Judaeo-Christian, etc,. Of course, most people know what religion our forefathers had in mind. The God of Abraham and Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Islamic beliefs that teach old testament values, “eye for an eye, tooth for tooth” would be in direct opposition to the laws that were written.

          Preaching to the choir! as I said, No where in the U.S. Constitution is “Separation of Church and State” written. Furthermore, if you actually understood Thomas Jefferson’s intent, was to make sure that no state nor Government should ever be allowed to remove those rights, not that any State should oppose or ostracize it outright, as they do now.

          “The American separation of church and state rests upon respect for the
          church; the [European anticlerical] separation, on indifference and
          hatred of the church, and of religion itself…. The constitution did not
          create a nation, nor its religion and institutions. It found them
          already existing, and was framed for the purpose of protecting them
          under a republican form of government, in a rule of the people, by the
          people, and for the people”

            except Islam is not a religion…it is a system of government…read the Koran their stated purpose is to institute there way of life…sharia law is there political system…look at IRAN and other countrys

          • Acecool

            I wish it were true. But because Islamic belief centers around the belief in a God, can’t be disputed within the Constitution as a non religion. Even the practice of Satanism is considered a religion according to it’s definition. Would have been great if the 1st Amendment were better defined, e.g. Judaeo Christian, Catholicism, Judaism, of which we know our forefathers had in mind. Too bad they couldn’t foresee the future.

      • daisy65014

        It is really amazing how little young people know today about our Constitution. It scary’s me what will happen to this great nation when the older folks pass away.

  • Iamacitizen2

    first of all it is an ideology it is NOT a religion!!! second of all I tend to think that he should just keep his lips ZIPPED since he is a Demorat and has NO right to say anything or criticize about the RNC which is a “good ole’ boy’s club” which is OUTSIDE the realm of this Demorat to voice his opinion.

    • Miss Annie

      I agree. It is a more radicalized form of Nazism with a God twist!

      • Cynthia Andrade

        With “A” god twist, not THEE GOD! THEE GOD is everyone’s GOD who wants him, no matter who. Muslims have chose to believe in a false god of evil and heresy.

    • Acecool

      From the Muslim standpoint, it is a religion. A false one, but nonetheless.

      Should you want to be technical about it, God himself describes Pure and Undefiled Religion in James 1:24

      • Miss Annie

        I do agree with you, as far as I know though.. it is the only religion that comes with its own politics.

        • Iamacitizen2

          It’s the only ideology / cult that comes from the dark side for sure and if you are not one of them they call you an infidel and off with your head or they kill you in some insane cruel way. Totally disgusting.

      This is truth! I too have done the research. And now, with Erdogan’s coup in Turkey, the Muslim Brotherhood is the 2nd largest army in NATO. How comforting is that???

      • Iamacitizen2

        yup and 5 years ago only 1/3rd of their parliament was muslim. It took Erdogan just 60 months to become pres and now he is a sultan…go figure folks. I know this because I checked it out and it is scary to think that it took so little time.
