It seems that the most controversial thing I said recently was that we need a constitutional Amendment to allow Congress to restrict the practice of Islam. So let me explain my reasoning in greater detail.
First of all, Islam is a false religion. Anyone who is Christian, Jewish, atheist, or anything else other than Muslim can agree that Islam is not the truth, and the Koran is not the word of a divine being but rather something that Mohamed made up himself (or maybe he had some help).
Too many people irrationally believe that all religions are good and all religions endorse peace. This is ridiculous. As a philosophy created by human beings, a religion can be just as evil as any other philosophy, such as Nazism, Pol Pot-ism, etc. Islam is right up there with the world’s most evil philosophies.
Defenders of Islam will predictably say “most Muslims don’t think like that.” First of all, I am really not sure exactly what most Muslims think. Secondly, “most” is hardly a very all-inclusive word. As Muslims become more religious, they become more dangerous (unlike the really religious Catholics who become nuns or monks, or the really religious Jews who become Hasidic). If even just 1% of Muslims turn bad, then for every million Muslims there are 10,000 potential terrorists.
This idea will probably have the most negative reaction from liberals, but liberals are being hypocritical here. Liberals have supported laws against hate speech. Islam is like hate speech, but worse because it’s organized hate speech.
Other Western nations have begun to take steps to reign in Islam. In France, Muslims are banned from wearing headscarves in schools and other public establishments. I think this is too little too late for France where the Muslim population is soaring. But even this small sensible step taken by the French would be forbidden by the U.S. Constitution. This is why we need a constitutional Amendment.
