This happened in 2009, but I just came across it today

This is the latest e-mail being circulated. Is this true?

Well, boys and girls, today we are letting the fox guard the henhouse. Tomorrow, the wolves will be herding the sheep!

Obama appointed two devout Muslims to homeland security posts.

Obama and Janet Napolitano appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development. DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

    I dont know about Obama mentioning it or not nor do I care frankly, but I hope you do realize there are Muslims living in America too you know. So you cant really make it look like a big deal when muslims are employed in DHS. So every American thats a muslim must face some sort of discrimination, if the government couldnt trust some Americans for being muslims so should the general public. This sort of mentality is NOT something that suggests desire to grow and develop as one society and community.

    Even putting aside the astounding bigoted ignorance of the question, I have to thank you for reminding us once again that the Right Wing Obama Haters have not got a clue as to what the Constitution (Article 6, to be precise) has to say:

    "No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

    Actually, that's not what Liberals say. Conservatives are the ones who make up new sections of the Constitution whenever they get tired of people actually having rights - you know, things like "corporations are people".

    And I forgive you for completely changing the subject. Given the way your candidate digs his own grave every day, it's completely understandable.

    You may be a registered independent, but you seem to be fairly consistent in your support of the conservative side of most issues. (Not that there's anything inherently wrong with that.)

    My point is that it's inaccurate to claim that it is "the Liberals" who want to change the Constitution.

    The Constitution IS a living document. It is designed to be flexible enough to deal with situations that could not be anticipated when it was written. For instance, Alexander Hamilton never had to worry about auto safety. James Madison did not have to consider whether private citizens should be allowed to purchase nuclear weapons. The Constitution provides for an Army and a Navy, but no Air Force. George Washington never had to wonder whether internet blogs are covered by Freedom of the Press.
