Glenn Beck at CNN interviewing the first Muslim congressman in American history says, "Prove to me that you are not working with our enemies." It's a pretty amazing thing to say (click on the link to see the video). The obvious question I would have for Glenn Beck, Prove to us that you are not working with our enemies. Never mind the impossibility of proving a negative. The enemies I'm talking about are ignorance, intolerance, racism. The enemies I'm talking about are the people that don't want us to have a diverse, pluralistic society.
In the same breath Glenn Beck insists that he has been to many mosques and has many Muslim friends. Let me be the first to say, I doubt it.
