Editor: I cannot support any “religious” test. While the Constitution forbids such a test to hold office and does not restrict it in other cases it is a slippery slope we ought not travel. The next religious test to bar people may be if you believe in God. There is already a law in place that simply needs to be applied. Public Code 414.
In the aftermath of the San Bernardino Islamic terrorist act by a Muslim couple which resulted in the tragic death of 14 Americans and numerous more wounded, a GOP presidential contender is calling for a complete halt of further Muslim migration to America.
In a statement issued on his campaign website on Monday, December 7, “Pearl Harbor Day,” Donald Trump’s campaign wants a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”
Considering who our president is, and considering feckless RINO leadership in both Houses of Congress, that may be a while.
Trump cited a June poll from the Center for Security Policy which indicates that 25% of Muslims believe that violence against Americans is justified as part of jihad. Additionally, the campaign correctly notes that Sharia Law, a tyrannical, anti-American, anti-freedom political system based on the teachings of Islam, teaches the torture, rape and/or murder of “infidels,” anyone who is a non-Muslim.
Trump stated about his plan:
“Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again.”
The left and the political establishment in both parties, as well as the Democrat Media Complex, will likely react unfavorably to Trump’s strong stance. Here are a few examples, beginning with Arizona RINO Senator Jeff Flake, followed by fellow establishment squish Jeb Bush:

And of course, out comes the race card from pro-Islamist Democrats, including ISIS sympathizer Hillary Clinton:

Meanwhile, Obama and the progressive leftist Democrats continue to desire the migration of tens of thousands of Muslim Syrian Muslim refugees (but not the Christians who are really being persecuted), knowing that there is no way to ensure that they will not be jihadists at best, or members of ISIS at worst.
However, the fact remains that while not all Muslims are terrorists, just like all Germans weren’t Nazis, it doesn’t alter the inconvenient truth that virtually all terrorism is committed…
