Last week we mentioned the anti-Muslim witch hunt that some members of Congress wanted to start against, of all people, Congressional interns.
And yesterday People For President Michael B. Keegan wrote about the chilling resurgance of McCarthy-like tactics coming from the Right Wing.
But we’d be remiss in failing to point out another Congressman standing up for religious liberty and against anti-Muslim bigotry. Representative Keith Ellison, himself the first Muslim-American member of Congress, took to the floor of the House to read a statement from the Congressional Tri Caucus. The statement made clear that people of all races and religions are welcome in the halls of Congress.
You can read the statement and watch a video of Rep. Ellison’s remarks here.
Congressman Ellison and all the members of the Tri Caucus, we salute you! Thanks for standing up for religious liberty for all.
