Hooray for S.C. Senator Lindsey Graham

Relative to Congressman Elect Keith Ellison’s plan to swear his oath on the Quran and Congressbigot Goode’s idiocy, Senator Graham, an apparent real conservative, has it exactly right.

“Why would you swear allegiance to a document outside your faith? In our legal system, people can take the oath in a variety of ways. Religious diversity is a strength, not a weakness in this country. We need immigration reform, but not for the reasons that Mr. Goode cited. What would happen in this country if a Christian were elected in Lebanon and he had to swear allegiance to the Koran when it came time for them to take office? There’d be an outcry in this country. So I embrace religious diversity. I welcome this new member of Congress. I’m glad he’s swearing allegiance to a document that is consistent with his faith.”

“And what I would like America to do in 2007 is understand that the war on terror is about intolerance, that Syria is a dictatorship that has no interest in seeing a representative democracy in Iraq, that Iran, the president of Iran hosted a conference denying the holocaust in December 2006, has vowed to destroy the state of Israel,” Graham continued. “We don’t need to be talking to these people, we need to be standing up to their agendas and bringing them in line with the world, a world of tolerance.”
