The U.S. Reformation Prayer Network, a group of looney tunes who consider themselves “prophets,” urged its followers to pray before Michigan’s primary on Tuesday because, if they didn’t, Michigan would become an Islamic state. Seriously.
Michigan has suffered great economic hardship for many years due to foreign competition and costs of doing business. We have historically historically been an anti-Semitic state, and hold one of the largest population of Muslims outside of the Middle East. There seems to be an underlying agenda by Islam to have Michigan become the first Islamic state in America.
Actually, we hold one of the largest populations of Arabs outside the Middle East; many of those Arabs are Christians, like the Chaldeans. But bigots like these people recognize no such distinction. By the way, about 3% of the Michigan population is Muslim. I worry far more about the fact that all three branches of government are controlled by the Republicans. On the list of things to be concerned about, a Muslim takeover of Michigan falls somewhere between a zombie apocalypse and a Backstreet Boys reunion.
