You clearly do not understand that the Constitution as the social contract that it is. Muslims have NO INTENTION of ever respecting your property rights, infidel. To them, you are not a fellow citizen deserving respect for your rights, but are instead lower than dirt. They are USING your respect for the Constitution against you, and laughing up their sleeves at what they intend to do to civic respect for your unalienable rights once they wield power. They are not participants in that social contract and are therefore undeserving of its protections. Upon reading the Quran, Jefferson understood that, and considered Islam a mortal threat to this nation should it ever be established here.

Infidel? uhh sounds like hes a closet Muslim to me, otherwise, why is he the spokesman for Islamics?

The same could be said about any religion in the world. Exceptions are not outlined, so shut up.

Funny, since Jefferson owned the Quran in which Ellison swore.

You do realize that Jefferson had little to nothing to do with the writing of the Constitution? He was not at the convention.

I Read About The Afterlife
Jefferson used to invite people over for feasts on Islamic holidays.

Except, no he didn't. Ever heard of the Treaty of Tripoli?

Do you have any proof Jefferson actually opened a Qran once ?

@ Big One
Keith Ellison swore himself into his position as a Representative on Jefferson's personal Quran, which currently resides in the Library of Congress. Thomas Jefferson reputedly taught himself how to fluently speak Arabic from his Quran, and also hosted the White House's first Iftar during Ramadan. These are matters of historical record.
Conservatives attempting historical retcon have been making loud attempts to convince everyone that Jefferson only read it to better understand the 'enemy' and never actually made all those pushes for religious tolerence.
Many of the founding fathers actually spoke glowingly of 'Musselmen' and their beliefs.
