Robin Hayes says we will win in Iraq by "spreading the message of Jesus Christ" there.

Robin Hayes has the solution to the Iraq war: have our soldiers convert all Muslims to Christianity.

Having won the election by only a hair’s width and almost getting himself kicked out of Congress seems to have had some profound psychological effects on poor Mr. Hayes. A speech that flip-floppin’ Robin gave last week at the Concord Rotary Club seems to prove he has finally gone off the deep end.

Our local weekly newspaper the “Concord Standard and Mount Pleasant Times” reported on Mr. Hayes speech in his hometown:

First there’s the usual talk of how we’re “winning” over there: “The war in Iraq has got to be won; it’s being won” (A couple of months ago Hayes said that the rise in violence in Iraq was an indication that we’re winning.)

Then comes the real kicker: “Stability in Iraq ultimately depends on spreading the message of Jesus Christ, the message of peace on earth, good will towards men. Everything depends on everyone learning about the birth of the Savior.”

So if we just turn our soldiers into missionaries everything will be okay, Mr. Hayes?

First we sent our men over there to take out the WMD’s, then it was to “spread democracy”, now you want them there to “spread the message of Jesus Christ”? It so happens that people in Iraq already have a savior but unfortunately for Mr. Hayes it’s Muhammed, not Jesus.

If we can’t keep Muslims from killing each other over there, I don’t think that trying to make them all Christian is going to be any easier.

With this kind of talk Hayes just plays into the hands of Al-Qaeda by confirming what their leaders have always been saying: those American soldiers are just modern Crusaders. He is thereby strengthening the beliefs of terrorists that want to kill every American soldier they come across.

It's good you forwarded this

It's good you forwarded this to CAIR & MAPAC.
We should have an open debate about this. I
don't know how this happens in the land of the
talking heads, but let's try.

However, I'm not too crazy about CAIR's stance
on religious intolerance either, e.g. their
spokesperson, Ibrahim Hooper, is on record
saying he would like to have religious law
in the US. The First Amendment not only guards
our freedom of thought & speech, but it keeps
the government from imposing laws of religious
practice upon us. Hooper would have a
hard time taking an oath to defend the
Constitution without some major caveats if he
does not now disavow that statement. No
one has had the courage to ask Rep Ellison how he
feels about his oath & his past association
with religious separatists like Farakhan.

As for MAPAC, I heard their media spokeperson
on community TV refer to the 'invasion of
Afghanistan' in a negative way. I assume
MAPAC lumps Afghanistan & Iraq together. As a dem,
I supported the 'invasion' of Afghanistan &
opposed Iraq (even though my new SoH Nancy
Pelosi voted for it) & the freeing of
Afghanistani women who did not want to wear
the burka. Based on MAPAC's statements, I can
assume they think the US invasion is a greater
evil than a burka & a religious government.

Disclaimer: I'm not defending Robin Haye's
statement. I just want to point out that
groups other than christian don't exactly
love our constitutional freedoms if they
lead to behavior which violates religious
practice.

I don't understand why we

I don't understand why we have to convert everyone standing in our way to our belief. All I hear about at work is about Iraq. We have so much problems surrounding us that we should leave out of borders problems to the people in charge. All I want to do for the holidays is to take up the offer of Canal boat holidays and go somewhere with no war talk, no pollution, no hate. Just mother nature and happy, relaxed people.
