Is John Guandolo Really This Ignorant and Bigoted?

Is John Guandolo Really This Ignorant and Bigoted? November 27, 2018

Disgraced former FBI agent John Guandolo, who was fired for having sex with a woman he was supposed to be protecting and is now a ridiculous Islamophobic bigot, says Muslims are not eligible for public office because the founding fathers “were very clear” that only Christians could serve in office.

In the recent midterm elections, Democrats Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota became the first Muslim women elected to Congress, but Guandolo is declaring that as “sharia-adherent women,” they are unable to uphold the U.S. Constitution and therefore must not be allowed to take office.

“These are people who are now, I would argue, legally they cannot serve in these positions,” Guandolo said. “You cannot have somebody who is adherent to sharia serving in public office. The founders, by the way, were very clear that only Christians should hold public office, so let’s just put that out there.”

Is he really this ignorant? Not only did the founders not believe that, they were very clear that anyone of any religion was eligible for public office. How clear? They put it right there in the Constitution that Guandolo no doubt claims to love and venerate. It’s right there in Article 6, Section 3, which says that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” That would end this “debate” immediately to any rational person, but Guandolo is not the least bit rational.
