Why didn’t we heed our Founding Fathers when it came to Islam?
Samuel Johnston, governor of North Carolina and member of the Constitution ratifying convention in 1788, likewise felt confident that Muslims should not, and hopefully would not, be allowed to become mainstream in American politics and public institutions—except in only two cases:
It is apprehended that Jews, Mahometans (Muslims), pagans, &c., may be elected to high offices under the government of the United States. Those who are Mahometans, or any others who are not professors of the Christian religion, can never be elected to the office of President or other high office, but in one of two cases.
First, if the people of America lay aside the Christian religion altogether, it may happen. Should this unfortunately take place, the people will choose such men as think as they do themselves.
Another case is, if any persons of such descriptions should, notwithstanding their religion, acquire the confidence and esteem of the people of America by their good conduct and practice of virtue, they may be chosen. I leave it to gentlemen’s candor to judge what probability there is of the people’s choosing men of different sentiments from themselves.
Could one argue that the American people have, indeed, laid aside the Christian religion altogether? The Kenyan surely didn’t possess, conduct, or practice virtue in his lead up to taking office.
Referring to Mohammed, John Quincy Adams wrote:
THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE.
James Iredell, a U.S. Supreme Court judge appointed by George Washington, articulated this point succinctly in 1788 in the debates on the wording of the Constitution:
But it is objected that the people of America may perhaps choose representatives who have no religion at all, and that pagans and Mahometans may be admitted into offices…. But it is never to be supposed that the people of America will trust their dearest rights to persons who have no religion at all, or a religion materially different from their own.
Now history is being re-written (by Muslim sympathizers) that our Founders actually wanted Islam in this country! These people must be identified. For the day will come when the animals will rise up against their benefactors. In those days, when they are hunted down and their nests burned, will not the hosts, as well, be held to account?
Let us then not forget to address issues such as these. Should a renewed Constitution (post-collapse) not allow citizens to hold those people (who skew and distort history) up to ridicule, and even punishment? Is this not a dark place where evil and mischief dwells? Will our highest chambers be revered places, as evidenced today, to house liars and cheats? Or will we truly divorce ourselves from the errors of our past? Whether it be Islam or Communism, makes little difference. Both are devised and sent forth to sew discord and division among us for their own sakes. For governments of retribution, abuse, and persecution. Our founders could not find the words, nor the reasons, for such drastic measures. Can we? Should we? Perhaps if all of the Progressive Federalists have been departed from us, it won’t become necessary. Then leave it (Constitution) as is written.
