can muslim-americans serve in the u.s. government? apparently pat robertson (founder of the christian coalition and host of the always-entertaining "700 Club") doesn't think so. he's entitled to hate muslims all he wants. he can fill his head all day long with delusions that muslims are treacherous and dirty, but nevertheless, americans need to recognize that his far-right evangelical christian view of this country is completely at odds with the constitution and the democratic norms that we've established over the past few centuries. these people HATE democracy because it IS inherently secular. judges and legislators and presidents don't have to adhere to a particular religion, but people like robertson are chipping away at it. let's hope they don't ever really get what they want.
