The Constitution requires that members of the House of Representatives be at least 25, citizens for seven years, and residents of the states which send them to Congress. That — and a shitload of money — are all you need to be a Congressperson. Sadly, the Constitution does not require that members actually comprehend the Constitution itself.
Jody Hice, a Baptist minister and talk-radio host, is running for Congress in Georgia’s 10th Congressional District as a stern defender of the First Amendment and religious freedom. But that freedom does not apply to those of the Muslim faith.
“Although Islam has a religious component, it is much more than a simple religious ideology,” Hice wrote in his 2012 book. “It is a complete geo-political structure and, as such, does not deserve First Amendment protection.”
So the First Amendment applies only to the right religion: Christianity. The rest are all just heathens and shouldn’t be here anyway.
