Rep. Keith Ellison Invites Tony Perkins to Visit Minneapolis and See That It’s Not Under Sharia Law

While Fox News has already apologized for wrongly saying Paris has “no-go zones” for non-Muslims, Christian Right leader Tony Perkins was still spreading the misinformation yesterday.

He said there were “700 no-go zones” in France, adding that Dearborn (Michigan) and Minneapolis were American cities that had been taken over by Sharia law.

That led Rep. Keith Ellison, who represents a large part of Minneapolis and happens to be one of two Muslims in Congress, to send Perkins a lovely Twitter smackdown in the form of an invitation to come visit his city:

A Quarter of Americans Believe God Determines the Winner of Sporting Events

A new survey from the Public Religion Research Institute (in partnership with Religion News Service) reveals that *way* too many Americans still think God has a vested interest in their favorite sports team:

About 1-in-4 (26%) Americans and 27% of self-described sports fans say that God plays a role in determining which team wins a sporting event. About 7-in-10 Americans (71%) and sports fans (69%) disagree.

Minority Protestants (45%) are more likely than any other religious group to believe that God plays a role in determining which team wins a sporting event. More than 3-in-10 white evangelical Protestants (32%) and Catholics (31%) believe that God plays a role in determining which team wins a game.
