In the wake of the barbaric attack by Muslims on the city of Paris, presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Monday that shutting down mosques is something we should “strongly consider.”
Said Trump during an interview with MSNBC, “Well, I would hate to do it but it’s something you’re going to have to strongly consider. Some of the absolute hatred is coming from these areas…The hatred is incredible. It’s embedded. The hatred is beyond belief. The hatred is greater than anybody understands.”
The interior minister of France, dealing with the tragic reality of 129 dead bodies at the hands of the “religion of peace,” said much the same thing, calling for the “dissolution of mosques where hate is preached.”
There is no question but that we are long past the time when many mosques in America should be shut down. They foment hatred and violence against the United States on a weekly basis and many have become recruiting and training centers for the most radical elements of Islam.
We likewise should ban Islamic chaplains in our prisons, which have become little more than recruiting centers for jihad. Couple angry, bitter, violent inmates with a religion that legitimizes violence against the country that put them behind bars? What could possibly go wrong?
Any discussion about restricting the practice of Islam immediately counters First Amendment objections. Why, we are told, “Muslims have freedom of religion in America under the Constitution just like Christians do! You can’t shut down a mosque! That would be unconstitutional!”
