Earlier in the week, I posted an article concerning legislation which would permit the president to detain Americans without trial indefinitely. I suggested that this could one day be used against those who oppose the socialist/Marxist in the White House. Was I overreacting? I don't think so.

Lefty Rag Salon Tries To Make The Case For Evangelical Christians Being a National Security Threat…
"How do you respond to something this stupid?
(Salon) — 'If you have the stomach to listen to enough right-wing talk radio, or troll enough right-wing websites, you inevitably come upon fear-mongering about the Unassimilated Muslim. Essentially, this caricature suggests that Muslims in America are more loyal to their religion than to the United States, that such allegedly traitorous loyalties prove that Muslims refuse to assimilate into our nation and that Muslims are therefore a national security threat.
Earlier this year, a Gallup poll illustrated just how apocryphal this story really is. It found that Muslim Americans are one of the most — if not the single most — loyal religious group to the United States. Now, comes the flip side from the Pew Research Center’s stunning findings about other religious groups in America. [...]
If, as Islamophobes argue, refusing to assimilate is defined as expressing loyalty to a religion before loyalty to country, then this data suggests it is evangelical Christians who are very resistant to assimilation. And yet, few would cite these findings to argue that Christians pose a serious threat to America’s national security. Why the double standard?'
Are these people serious? When is the last time you heard about a Christian suicide bomber? They seem to forget that the Christian God prohibits murder. It is Allah who calls for jihad of infidels.
