AJC: Keep faiths attack-free |

OUR OPINIONS: Keep faiths attack-free | "U.S. Rep. Virgil Goode (R-Va.) claims to want to 'preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the United States of America,' but ranting about the election of the first Muslim-American to Congress was a strange and troubling way to do so.

Goode apparently forgot —- or conveniently chose to ignore —- the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of freedom of religion.

Goode's outburst was triggered by controversy about the plans of U.S. Rep.-elect Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) to use the Quran during an unofficial part of his oath-taking when he becomes a member of Congress next month."
