Folks, especially folks in Houston Texas District 9 in ...this man, Al Green needs to go. This is a name to remember.  Any person that wants to compare Radical Islam and their hatred and violence to Christianity is either dumber than a box of rocks and therefore not capable of serving this nation at any level, or he is Radical sympathizer. Either way the man needs to go. Here is his contact information if you would like to call or email Mr. Green. -W.E.

Rep. Peter King’s (R-N.Y.) House hearings exploring the potential radicalization of American Muslims continue to be highly contentious. During the latest meeting, a startling, new proposal that came from a Congressional Democrat is sure to raise eyebrows.
On Wednesday, as King continued his exploration of the important issue, Texas Congressman Al Green (D) offered up a bizarre suggestion — that the federal government also hold a hearing on the “radicalization of Christianity.”
NJ.com provides an overview of the controversial gathering:
…[this was] the fifth in a controversial series of hearings on the threat to U.S. security posed by Islamic radicalization first convened by King in March 2011. As chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, King insists it’s his responsibility to investigate the threat. But critics including Democrats and some Muslim-American groups say King is on a McCarthy-esque witch hunt that runs counter to the Democratic ideals the 9/11 terrorists themselves were attacking.
King’s comments were consistent with the views of the three Muslim witnesses he had invited to testify.
Asra Nomani, a former Wall Street Journal reporter and author of “Standing Alone: An American Woman’s Struggle for the Soul of Islam,” testified that many non-Muslims were frustrated by the reluctance of Muslim-Americans to acknowledge the role that selective readings of the Koran can play in fostering terror.
