My apologies for my state (again)

I swear that Virginia is such a mixed bag of worms. We finally elect a Democratic Senator and give the Democrats in the Senate and then one of our Congressmen has to open his big mouth.

I don’t get this. We have freedom of religion right? Isn’t that what our country was founded on? Congress represents all people of all faiths right? What is the big deal if he carries his religious book for an unofficial ceremony? Would it be better if he was a hypocrite and carried a Bible?

Goode is worried about more Muslims coming into the country and taking over? What? Muslims are not just immigrants. Plenty of Muslims are born right here in America. Are they any less American and deserving of representation then he is?


I hear shades of the discussion they had when JFK first ran for president…he can’t govern because he will have to put the Pope and his religion before what is best for the country.


I am tired of living in a country that seems to be afraid of everything and anything. And I feel sorry for my Muslim friends (there is a very strong Muslim homeschooling community up here in Northern Virginia) who have done nothing wrong and have to watch their religion be feared in this way.


About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    I so agree with you (Florida has its share of embarrassing politicians too). There are some bigots already starting to harp on Barkack Obama’s Muslim side of the family. I can see them doing the same type of thing to him as they did to JFK, if he does decided to run for president.

    I can’t imagine any “faith based president” worse than the one we have now. Sorry. /rant
