Conyers needs to read the Constitution

Via Little Green Footballs, through Basil’s Blog, we find that nutbag Rep. John Conyers wants to outlaw religious intolerance against Islam:

I received a large number of comments, and quite a spirited debate, concerning my resolution opposing religious intolerance, including desecration of the Quran. I appreciate all of the comments, both those supporting and opposing my actions. I continue to believe that given recent events, it is worthwhile for the Congress to actually express its support for the freedom of religion. The resolution was drafted to oppose all religious intolerance. To the extent it mentions the Quran and Islam specifically, that is obviously to respond to those who believe our nation would tolerate disrespect of that religion or its holy book. Clearly we should not, at least in my opinion.

You can hit his "blog" if you want to read the rest. But, basically, "JC" forgot this little thing:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (I hope I do not have to mention which Amendment this is :D)

So, JC wants to pass a law respecting the establishment of religion. Perhaps this is a bit out of context, since he doesn’t want Islam to be the national religion (that is his next Bill), but it sure is making Islam official in the USA, isn’t it?

Furthermore, it establishes that people of other religions cannot exercise their ability to try and convert people from Islam to say, Christianity.

To continue on, this would violate the next line about abridging the freedom of speech. 3 for 3.

It is all nice and good that Conyers wants to protect peoples Rights. But people need to show that they deserve those Rights, and it seems to be that a minority of Muslims are showing the same tolerance and respect for other religions.

And, just for reference, were Conyers to submit the same Bill for Christianity, I would say the same things, except for that last line of the previous paragraph. This is not Governments place, as stated by the Constitution. Period.

    He knows what’s in the Constitution, he doesn’t care. Not at all.

    And for the record, Islam can eat my shorts.

    Oh dear, did I just commit an intolerant hate crime in Conyer-land? Idiot.

  3. No crime in my book. Respect is a two way street. The seemingly majority of Islam shows no respect to themselves, much less others.

    008.067 It is not fitting for a prophet that he should have prisoners of war [slay them] until he hath thoroughly subdued the land. {TREASON! in America

    009.030 The Jews call ‘Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; in this they but imitate what ”’ the unbelievers ”’ of old used to say. Allah’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!

    037.151 Is it not that they say, from their own invention,

    037.152 Allah has begotten children? but they are liars!

    019.089 Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!

    009.123 O ye who believe! fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you.

    047.004 Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers in fight [jihad], smite at their necks. [Behead them!]

    And this is acceptable to John Conyers???? hmmmm

    It MUST be said – There there is NOT ONE SINGLE New Testament Scripture where humans are commanded to hurt each other.

    Present one – if there are [There aren’t] So don’t expect any to be posted.

    That brings us all right back to the vicious commands of the Koran – and John Conyer’s unreasonable demands
