The Bigotry of Trump and Others

Bravo to Congressman Keith Ellison.

Rep. Ellison Statement on Comments By GOP Presidential Candidates

Press Release
Washington DC - Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) released the following statement after recent comments made by several GOP Presidential Candidates: 
"The freedom of religion is a founding principle of our nation. Our Constitution gives this right to all Americans - including elected officials. For Ben Carson, Donald Trump, or any other Republican politician to suggest that someone of any faith is unfit for office is out of touch with who we are as a people. It’s unimaginable that the leading GOP presidential candidates are resorting to fear mongering to benefit their campaigns, and every American should be disturbed that these national figures are engaging in and tolerating blatant acts of religious bigotry.”
