Muslim radicalization hearings or state sponsored bigotry?

Republican Peter King of New York, and today I’m ashamed of the New Yorkers who voted him into office,  in a bit of political grand standing, meant I’m sure to solidify his “conservative” credentials, is holding hearings on the radicalization of American Muslims. 

Now let’s look at those two words, American Muslims, so Americans are being investigated for their religious beliefs.  I believe they tried this in Spain once, it was called the inquisition.  By what right does our government have to investigate a whole religion of people based upon the acts of several individuals?  And I don’t want to hear the nonsense some conservatives spout about how Islam is a violent religion, read the Christian Bible then read the Koran, there is a lot of overlap and a whole lot of violence in both books.  As a matter of fact if you made a movie using the literal stories in the Christian Bible it would have to be rated NC-17 due to violence, sexual situations and rape.  Yet Christianity is considered by conservatives to be the peaceful and “right” religion and Islam is violent and wrong. 

There are radicals in every religion; I’ll bet Timothy McVeigh, Ted Kaczynski and Eric Rudolph were all Christians, so why aren’t we having hearings on the radicalization of Christianity.  Hell American Muslims haven’t actually killed anyone but these white Christians did?  Oh that’s right, they are white Christians so they can act as individuals, but brown people who are Muslims are incapable of individual thought, at least that is what these hearings suggest.

Peter King you should be ashamed of yourself and your state sponsored bigotry.
