Oklahoma legislator Rex Duncan
did the right thing by shunning a copy of the Koran
given to him that was intended to promote "diversity", aka multiculturalism:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A gift intended to promote diversity in Oklahoma is generating controversy instead.
Several state lawmakers are returning copies of the Quran to a state panel on diversity after one lawmaker claimed the Muslim holy book condones the killing of innocent people.
In a letter to colleagues, state Representative Rex Duncan says "most Oklahomans do not endorse the idea of killing innocent women and children in the name of ideology." At least 17 other legislators have notified the Governor's Ethnic American Advisory Council that they too will return the gift.
The council's chairwoman, herself a Muslim, is denouncing Duncan's assessment of Islam. She says Islam not an ideology but a religion, and a "very peaceful, very inclusive" one.
In Washington, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations calls Duncan's statement "disturbing" and "offensive."
Blah blah blah, listen to them whine again at CAIR, the unindicted co-conspirator. Nobody should have anything to do with that chairwoman and she shouldn't be allowed to maintain a position there either with the beliefs she supports. Duncan and all other legislators who rightfully shunned the awful book of evil should be praised for refusing it, and I hope he goes on to become a more prominent politician, maybe even working in positions similar to John Bolton's.
