Europe is in a state of despair because of the large influx of Muslim migrants that have flooded into the continent over the last 5 years. There is a hardly a day that goes by where you don’t hear a story about a terrorist attack that happened because a terrorist came into a country legally and escaped capture. There are millions of migrants running around Europe.
So when former judge and Senatorial candidate Roy Moore called Islam a “false religion” he was not expecting the level of backlash that he ended up receiving.
“False religions like Islam, who teach that ‘you must worship this way,’ are completely opposite with what our First Amendment stands for”
Moore is exactly right. Islam forces itself on its followers and those that don’t follow the religion as well. The First Amendment is supposed to promote the freedom of religion. The freedom to practice whatever religion you want in any way that you want.
However, Moore’s statements did not go over very well with local Muslims. The head of the Council for American-Islamic Relations in Alabama, Khaula Hadeed, said:
“Statements that espouse Islamophobia and cast out fellow Alabamians, implying that they do not have the same rights under the law, are un-American”
It should be noted that nowhere in his statement did Moore say that Muslims were entitled to less protections. Just that their practices were at odds with the First Amendment. Moore’s comment was in reference to a question asked about the possibility of Sharia law taking over the United States.
Moore made a comment based on current events and revolving around the intention of our Constitution.
Hadeed extended an offer to Moore to attend a mosque during his Senate campaign.
“We invite Judge Roy Moore to visit a mosque, meet with Alabamian Muslims, and learn about their Islamic faith and about the Muslim constituents he intends to serve as a representative. As a candidate for Senate, this is perhaps the best time for him to do so.”
Moore has not commented on whether or not he will take Hadeed up on his offer. But judging by Muslim-European relations at the moment, doing so may inhibit his electoral campaign.
