GOP Candidate Slams Religious Tolerance

What’s the deal with the GOP? Seriously? Here we are on the cusp of the second decade of the 21st Century and these people are acting like it’s the 18th. Look, I realize they are conservative, but, come on. Be progressive on some issues.

I don’t know a lot about Islam,  but I’m pretty sure it’s a religion, regardless of what the GOP spews out. Now, to be fair, Allen West does not speak for the GOP . But when he goes out  gives speeches which are, essentially, diatribes of hatred, it just smacks of a weak-minded person.

Never mind the hypocrisy of being an African-American who is intolerant of others. Wow! Things like this just blow my mind. I simply don’t understand how anyone could be this intolerant.

I certainly hope that Mr. West loses his bid to become a member of Congress.

As to the Coexist comments, let me be absolutely clear here: I fully support the Coexist movement. I don’t see why Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindu‘s, Wiccans, Pagans, Atheists, and anyone else I’ve forgotten, cannot live together and get along without killing each other.

Seriously, folks. We make the world we want to live in. Don’t let someone like Allen West make that world an intolerant place.
