I have news for you. I’m a muslim and I’m an american citizen. I’m married to an american citizen. Most of the muslims I know are american citizens. Most muslims in america are citizens.
“Until the American Muslim community find it in their hearts to separate themselves from their evil, radical counterparts, to condemn those who want to destroy our civilization and will fight against them, we are not obligated to open our society to any of them,” Zelenik says in the statement.
You have no control over whether or not to open YOUR society to us. This is OUR society too. And it’s open to us to worship and practice our religion freely.
Unless of course you’re proposing stripping us of our constitutional rights and/or citizenship. But then, that’s a whole ‘nother ball of wax, isn’t it? I thought conservatives were all about spearheading the right to freedom of worship and were fierce defenders of the constitution. At least that’s what it says on your website:
“Our shared beliefs of faith, family and freedom, resonate from our courthouses to our neighborhoods and farming communities. Standing on principle, it is time to put people before politics. The special interests have had control of our government long enough. It is time to put our nation back on a Constitutional path. I would be honored to earn your support.”
I’m confused. How are you planning on putting this country back on a constitutional path when you’re aiming to remove rights guaranteed in that very document to a subset of citizens?
