If the Leader’s Comments Don’t Represent the Movement

…then whose do?

A Nation of Islam official who serves on a state hate crimes commission said Tuesday it’s ridiculous that she has been condemned for remarks made by the religious movement’s leader, Minister Louis Farrakhan.
Sister Claudette Marie Muhammad’s comments were her first since four members of the Governor’s Commission on Discrimination and Hate Crimes resigned last week rather than serve with her.
“For those who try to condemn me because of the honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s remarks,” she said on WVON-AM, “it’s ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous.”
…”Please know I am not the victimizer here, OK, but instead I am the victim,” she said. She refused to repudiate Farrakhan and recommended that people who disagree with him, speak with him.

I’m sorry, sweet cheeks, but plenty of Christians have called Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell ‘crackheads’. I was with you right up to where you didn’t condemn his hatefulness. You don’t belong in that chair if you can’t.

  1. Crusader says:

    Dear Lord, I hate the whole concept of Hate Crimes. What a farce.

  2. So do I ~ why is one act more hateful than another simply because it was the result of prejudice? I think a harmful act against another human being regardless of motivation is hateful in itself. The end result is the same and should be answered with the SAME swift punishment.
    As for the commission, it sort of loses it’s moral authority when it has ‘haters’ on the commission.
