Dem Rep Keith Ellison ➠ Islamic State Is Not “Islamic” Anymore Than The KKK Is “Christian”
Via CNS News:
Congressional Representative Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said that the Islamic State is not “Islamic” anymore than the Ku Klux Klan is “Christian,” on Wednesday, Mar. 18.
At the U.S. Capitol, CNSNews.com asked the congressman, “The Atlantic magazine’s Graeme Wood recently wrote that ‘the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic’ and that ‘the religion preached by its most ardent followers derives from coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam.’ Do you agree that the Islamic State is Islamic?”
Rep. Ellison said, “I do not agree. It’s as Islamic as the Ku Klux Klan is Christian, right. It is, of course, you know, the Ku Klux Klan uses Christian rhetoric, they throw crosses around. But what person going to church on any given Sunday recognizes that as their faith? And so, that’s the same way that I believe that ISIS is Islamic.”
“I can tell you that I go to Mosque every Friday and I go all over this country and meet Muslims every day, and all of them look at ISIS with tremendous horror,” said Ellison, who is a Sunni Muslim. “And, by the way, ISIS kills Muslims more than anybody else.” More
