Love him or hate him, Virginia congressman Virgil Goode has been fanning the flames of religion and politics. Using scare tactics to dvide people rather than bringing them together, the Republican representative wrote to his constituents and replied to CNN that “if American citizens don’t wake up and adopt the Virgil Goode position on immigration there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Koran.” His comment was in response to Muslim-elect Keith Ellison from Minnesota who asked to be sworn in using the Koran vs. the Bible. He is a man of faith Virgil, what’s wrong with Keith swearing on his faith instead of yours??
