Trump's VP Pick: Muslim Ban is "Offensive and Unconsitutional". Roger Algase

Rate this Entry
Update, July 15, 1:00 pm:

It is now official that Trump has picked Indiana Governor Mike Pence, who evidently needs to brush up on his Charles Darwin in order to learn something about evolution, but who courageously opposed Trump's original plan to ban all Muslims in the entire world (including US citizens) from American on the basis of religion, to be his Vice Presdential running mate.

By rejecting Newt Gingrich, who announced on July 14 that he would like to deport Americans from their own country if they hold religious beliefs that Newt doesn't agree with, Trump enabled America to dodge a proto-fascist bullet. which would have been reminiscent of Germany's deporting Jewish citizens because of their religion under Adolf Hitler.

Hopefully, by picking reported creationist Mike Pence to be his running mate, Trump may be showing that he has evolved somewhat from his original anti-Muslim proposal, which Pence rightly called "offensive and unconstitutional" last December.

My initial post appears below:

The Hill reports on July 14 that Donald Trump has picked as his VP running mate Indiana Governor Mike Pence, who tweeted last December that Trump's proposed ban on Muslim immigration was "offensive and unconstitutional".

At least there will be one person on the Trump ticket who believes that upholding the First Amendment's guarantee of free exercise of religion is more important than pandering to bigotry against Muslim and other minority immigrants.

Rabid immigrant-hating columnist Ann Coulter, according to the Huffington Post, has also blasted Pence for allegedly being too "soft" on immigration, including having supported allowing legal foreign workers to come to the US. She says that picking Pence would be Trump's first "mistake".

This is another indication that picking Pence might inject a badly-needed note of sanity into Trump's campaign, as far as immigration is concerned. How long it would last is a different question.

    I have deleted this comment in its entirety. I have been very tolerant of hate posts up to now, but enough is enough

    This is a site for commenting on immigration law issues, not for posting hate speech directed at all members of an entire religious or ethnic group, no matter how despicable and evil the actions of certain members of that group may be, as in the case of the terrorist attacks or violent crimes you refer in many of your posts.

    If you want to blame all Muslims in the entire world for these events, then you might want to get in touch with organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan, which I am sure would welcome your posts, just as they have welcomed comments against Jews, African-Americans and Latinos for so many years.

    If your were consistent in deleting hate speech comments, you would have to delete almost all of yours.

    Your comments on Pence are a good example.

    Anyone who thinks modern evolutionary theory (some ancients promoted similar views) does not understand first philosophy.

    Nothing that is subject to change can be the cause of its own existence. Plato and Aristotle proved the existence of an uncaused cause purely as a matter of reason, not theology. The Greek gods were not anything like that.

    Traditional Christians, Jews and Muslims call that uncaused cause "God .'

    Pence's "some day I will ask" is not a rejection of evolution. It simply acknowledges that no amount of understanding of mechanics even begins to answer, why?"

    It is also good to remember that "social Darwinism" as an overarching principle for organizing society was a doctrine of the Left, not of conservatives

    And, of course, the KKK was the armed wing of the Democrats. And even recently, Klan membership had no adverse effect on Bobby Bird's political dominance.

    IL Wiurker quotes Plato and Aristotle as authorities for supporting creationism and opposing evolution. I am not an authority on those two great philosophers and this is not a site for discussions of religion.

    I respect the views of all the major religions of the world, as long as they are not used as excuses for causing violence and harm to society. When they are, then I would quote the great Roman poet Lucretius, in his immortal work, De Rerum Natura, ("On the Nature of Things") who more tnan 2,000 years ago wrote:

    tantum religio potuit suadere malorum ("Superstition was able to cause such great evil.")

    In our own time, one could argue that rejection of science can also lead to very great evil, especially in the case of climate change denial, which Trump and Pence both adhere to.

    As for doctrines such as creationism, which have been totally disproven by science, there is nothing wrong with teaching them in churches, synagogues and mosques, where they are protected by the Constitution.

    But teaching them or promoting them in schools not only violates the First Amendment's prohibition against establishment of religion, but, arguably, causes great harm to society by stunting children's minds as a result of teaching them false science, and thereby prevents them from realizing their full potential

    But these questions are beyond the scope of this site.

    For our purposes, the word "superstition" (Latin: religio) which Lucretius uses, can mean any false views, such as the one that America's immigration system should be based on the white supremacist ideology that so many of Trump's supporters believe in and which. arguably, influences both Trump's and Pence's immigration proposals, as I will discuss in more detail in a forthcoming post, dealing with the "Nordics" - only Immigration Act of 1924.

    This racist, openly white supremacist law was inspired in part by a false scientific doctrine, namely the alleged "genetic" superiority of the white race to all other ethnic groups.

    This anti-immigration "religio" did indeed lead to tantum malorum for America, and can do so again if white supremacist immigration policies take hold in America once more, as they threaten to do in a Trump/Pence administration.
