They have faith that there is no God, apparently.

What I want to know is, if Michele Bachmann had a meeting with "faith leaders" would the press treat her as kindly?

Salam br. Keith Ellison:
Its nice to hear that an official is making ammends and trying to unite the different faiths. It would be nice that the other officials instead of taking sides also join the bandwagon that Keith Ellison is doing and sit with all the different faiths. AMEN.

Atheists were not born as atheists. They were once people of faith and for some reason or the other they lost the faith. Thus, in their hearts, soul, spirit a light still exists and it needs to be brought out once again rather than putting it off totally. In another words athiests are a.k.a. "people with no faith" with the word "faith" still present. Thanks.

I guess faith in Algore's Manmade Gorebull Warming is a religion and that counts for faith.

Will Keith define infidel for the leaders of the other faiths? Will Keith tell them what any good Muslim is supposed do to infidels?

The last time Keith Ellison addressed a community of faith leaders was the day the Flying Imams staged their little piece of street theatre.

Ellison has consistently refused to let anyone see the video of his remarks, or to release a transcript of what he said to them that day.

Frankly, I'd be happier if he spoke ONLY to atheists and not to religious leaders who have demonstrated they are more ... excitable.

Ellison is a total phony. He is tied to the Phonyness Factor with Franken.

Ellison=Franken=Phonies.

They should be kicked out of politics or any other sphere of influence.

I wonder if his jewish mistress will be there? The urban democrats will elect anyone with a D after their name. Even if they haven't paid their traffic tickets, disclosed their campaign finances, or called the police regarding a domestic dispute with someone other than their spouse. Good Muslim Convert Behavior!

Fellow bigoted idiots---I say AMEN to your ignorant, uninformed, completely worthless commentaries!!
Like you, I am a rabid moron with little understanding of the world around me. Instead of reading a book once in a blue moon, I prefer to sit in front of the computer typing vicious, stupid nonsense all day long. I know absolutely nothing about Keith Ellison except what I hear from highly paid haters like Michael SAvage and Rush Limbo.
I, like you, am not able to think for myself! Yay!

it is because of the seperation of church and state that we are proud to be among the no. 1 in killings, murdering, mistreatment of people, diseases, illness, AIDS, you name it we have it. if its anything bad, worse, worst because we kept GOD out of state and our laws. That which GOD forbade we accepted and that which GOD accepted we forbade. SO THINK ABOUT IT !!!??

Do we pay this guy's wages to promote the Muslim religion? I've never heard of him doing anything else.
