A grateful hat-tip to the good folks over at Religion Clause for this story.
An evangelical Christian group calling themselves Truth For Muslims has published a voter (mis-)guide that attempts to “educate YOU about one of the most crucial issues facing America:”
A sinking economy? Loss of American diplomatic power? A warming planet? Of course not!
“…the rising influence of Islam.”
Insofar as Islam is concerned, the ideal candidate (“TIC”) will be one who knows history and understands Islam in its historical context over time. He readily sees that Islam is incompatible with the United States Constitution, Biblical Christianity, and basic Western democracy.
It never ceases to amaze me how many times people invoke the Constitution without having any idea what it actually says. Separation of church and state? No religious test for office? Anybody home?
It only gets worse from there, including perpetuation of the lie that Barack Obama is a Muslim. You can read the full voter (mis-)guide here, but I’m warning you it will churn the stomach a little.
