Civil discourse? Responsiveness to Muslim constituents? Belief in religious freedom? Not from Congressman Allen West (R-FL)

When the Council on American-Islamic Relations recently wrote Congressman Allen West (R-FL), urging him to cut ties with “anti-Islamic extremists, they explained,

“Muslims protect and serve our great country and are afforded equal protection under law. We shouldn’t have to defend our rights to worship freely or participate in the governing of our society.”

Congressman West responded with one word, in what the Miami New Times reporter wrote “might be the dumbest thing ever written on congressional stationery.”

Thanks to the Facebook page, “Americans Against Islamophobia,” for spotlighting this ugliness.

    I completely agree that this was the height of foolishness on the part of the Congressman and I will write about it. However, more mundane matter are on my mind. Where is your RSS feed? You have one for each post but not a general one for the whole web site. I’m creating a list of web sites I follow and I’m putting them on a RSS reader on my web site – anyone who visits my site will see your new titles as they come up. They like a title, they click on it, they go straight to you. Pretty neat, huh? Your RSS 2.0 feed is only good per the comments on any single post. If I can get one for the whole web site, I can put my plan into action. James Pilant
