Profiles in Stupidity: Bill Sali (R-ID)

09 August 2007

Rep. Bill Sali (R-ID) recently had the following to say, regarding non-christian members of Congress:

"We have not only a Hindu prayer being offered in the Senate, we have a Muslim member of the House of Representatives now, Keith Ellison from Minnesota. Those are changes -- and they are not what was envisioned by the Founding Fathers"

Well let's find out what the founding fathers thought about non-christians serving in Congress. Maybe the Constitution would be a good source of information:
"no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States"

That seems kinda clear to me. Add to that the fact that the Constitution nowhere favors christianity of any stripe, and was enacted over the objections of anti-federalists who specifically objected to the document's godlessness, and suddenly their intentions become even more clear.

And just to give you an idea about the kind of news source One News Now is, here are the results from one of its online polls:
