Democrat Senator wants Congress to honor the Koran

From WorldNetDaily:

Responding to the Middle East riots allegedly sparked by the retracted Newsweek Quran-in-toilet story, Democratic Rep. John Conyers Jr. has proposed a congressional resolution that condemns defamation of Islam's book. ...

The resolution recognizes Islam as a religion of “peace” and the Quran as the “holy book for Muslims who recite passages from it in prayer and learn valuable lessons about peace, humanity and spirituality.”

Funny that the Bible and Christianity get trashed all the time with no mention of any Congressional resolution. This would be a good example of rewarding bad behavior. Especially since the resolution specifically mentions the Koran. According to the actual text the resolution...

(1) condemns bigotry, acts of violence, and intolerance against any religious group, including our friends, neighbors, and citizens of the Islamic faith;

(2) declares that the civil rights and civil liberties of all individuals, including those of the Islamic faith, should be protected;

(3) recognizes that the Quran, the holy book of Islam, as any other holy book of any religion, should be treated with dignity and respect; and

(4) calls upon local, State, and Federal authorities to work to prevent bias-motivated crimes and acts against all individuals, including those of the Islamic faith.

Since Conyers has one of the nation's larger Muslim communities in his Detroit-area district it's obvious that he pimping for votes.
