Marvin Scott on IslamJuly 1st, 2010 at 3:19 pm by Jim Shella under Jim Shella's Political Blog
7th District GOP candidate Marvin Scott is not backing off his position on the Muslim religion in the face of bigotry charges from Democrats. In fact, in a statement just released, Scott appears to be baiting Rep. André Carson, 1 of just 2 Muslims in Congress, on the matter.
“My opponent is a convert to Islam,” says Scott in the statement sent out by a public relations firm. ”He made the personal decision to change his faith, and that is his sacred right. I passionately defend his right to become a Muslim and I defend every other American’s right to practice or change their faith as they choose. What they do not have the right to do is to replace American law with extremist Muslim Sharia law. I believe that all Americans should join together in condemning “Muslim Extremism” and all of its ramifications.”
Here’s the kicker, ” I ask my opponent to join me in standing up, standing strong and standing against “Muslim Extremism” and Sharia law.”
