CAIR attacks Free Speech -- Again

Popular Jewish political commentator Dennis Prager has recently said that the oath of office for a U.S. Congressman should be taken in conjunction with the Bible only. A recently-elected Congressman, Keith Ellison, wants to use the Koran.

I usually agree with Prager but I don't on this one. Whatever makes your oath most sacred to you should be used, in my opinion.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations does not agree with Prager, either, but, instead of being content simply to register disagreement with Prager -- as I have just done -- they want him punished for expressing his view. They want him removed from a semi-government job that he holds. The (Jewish) Anti-Defamation League disagrees with Prager too.
