God - Allah, they are one in the same. I am a Christian and have read the Koran. One should read the Koran before criticizing Islam. One who will swear to uphold our constitution, forget his or her faith, is not one to worry about.

Goode is just another bigoted Republican. The voters need to remove him from office as part of their political cleansing.

Here's to hoping Rep. Virgil Goode Jr. loses his job next time around!
President Bush's refusal to comment speaks for itself. "America as a melting pot of cultures and religions" is just more BS from the Dimwit in Chief

A forlorn hope. Good and Goode will continue to triumph over you members of the American Fifth Column.

This congressman has the balls to stand up to these
Muslim thugs. One should also see the groups that
are support this congressman elect.

They have funded Hamas and AlQueda. So much for the
peace loving Muslims.

It's too bad that the other 434 Congressman do not have the guts to tell it like it is. When you wake
up and have Muslims running and ruining this counry
like they are in Europe, it will be too late.

I am proud to have Virgil Goode represent my state of Virginia.

The Quran is the word of a man. A bad man who murdered people and robbed caravans in the desert. You are forbbiden to believe in man.
Big deal!! Ooooh...my bible is older than your bible! How absolutely childish and inane. If that's the test of validity, then the Judeo-Christian religions are far outshone by all the animist and pagan religions. Or maybe we should start worshipping Zeus, or Quetzalcoatl, since they were around before your bible.

People are ranting and raving about the way Americans dislike, and distrust Muslims. They should look within themselves. The Muslims have brought everything on themselves. They preach hate in their Mosques, deny women basic God given rights, and are making demands worldwide that every nation convert to Islam, or be destroyed. What the Hell do they expect in return?

As a person who loves animals, I greive every time I read that the Muslim scum are growing in numbers. They are bringing animal sacrifice into the civilized world. Anyone out there if you love animals, we need to get over this idea of freedom of EVERY religion and the idea that religions are equal! The are NOT! If you love animals, you need to work AGAINST ISLAM!

I heard Goode is of Nation of Islam, who are not really Muslim but I'm not sure and I hope he is not.

harold goldberg: If you say Muslims funded Hamas (Palestine's elected ruling party), then remember that america funded the biggest torrorist on earth, and that is what is called "israel" which runs its military like a mafia killing innocent people in Palestine and destroying their lands.

jeff: Actually Muslims do beleive in Jesus and that he was Mary's son and God's prophet and that he will return at the end of the time.

My next door neighbor is a Muslim. He grills up some of the best chicken....
I think Jesus mentioned something about turning the other cheek. I see a lot of fear in here. People scared that Islam will take over. No, they won't. Many are already starting to assimilate. The only difference between them and us is the book they use to talk to God with.
If we can live in peace with them here, we can live in peace with them there!

CCS, of course you are right. Most Muslims are good people. The problem is not "Most Muslims", the problem is most religious terrorists are Muslims.
