Wait, Islam is a religion? Louisiana Republican has to be reminded that it is

The state of Louisiana recently passed a voucher program that would allow for state funds to be used for religious schools. This seems to violate the constitutional principle of the separation of church and state, but Obama (and those damn liberals) have launched a war on religion, so it only makes sense to violate a core constitutional idea to make sure faith isn’t totally extinguished by that Muslim, Socialist, immigrant president.

The scenario, already humorous, became even more laughable, when Rep. Valarie Hodges (R-Watson) said she had no idea that the voucher to use these public funds for private schools included giving money to Muslim schools. She believed that the money would only be used to fund the religions of the “Founders.” (Someone should recommend that she read a biography of Benjamin Franklin or Thomas Jefferson to really see if she understands what the religious views of the “Founders” really were). Perhaps Hodges simply forgot that Islam is the second-largest religion in the world with nearly 2 billion followers. Honest mistake, right? Well, no, because she released the following statement after the passing of the bill:

“Unfortunately it will not be limited to the Founders’ religion,” Hodges said. “We need to insure (sic) that it does not open the door to fund radical Islam schools. There are a thousand Muslim schools that have sprung up recently. I do not support using public funds for teaching Islam anywhere here in Louisiana.

Hodges turns to playing the radical Islamist card. No surprise here. All practicing Muslims are terrorists, right? If that is the case, then Hodges is funding terrorism by voting for this bill, no? Oh, wait, I forgot only Muslims can support terrorism. Congressmen Peter King (supporter of the IRA) and Newt Gingrich (applauding the MEK) can publicly hail terrorist groups without being accused of having ties to terrorism. However, when Arabs buy cell phone parts, it’s time to start finding the link to Al-Qaeda. Islamophobia is a result of ignorance, as can be seen by the actions and statements of Representative Hodges.
