Kevin Grantham is not a politician like we used to think of politicians.

No, he is a politician more in the way of pandering for votes and lying to his constituency in order to get paranoid Christians to vote for him. In the past, we thought of politicians as statesmen, as problem solvers and diplomats. But he is simply not that, and his constituents need to take that into account when they vote.

“Mosques are not churches like we would think of churches. They think of mosques more as a foothold into a society, as a foothold into a community, more in the cultural and in the nationalistic sense. Our churches — we don’t feel that way, they’re places of worship, and mosques are simply not that, and we need to take that into account when approving construction of those.”

-Colorado state Sen. Kevin Grantham (R)

Don’t get me wrong: I’m no more a fan of Islam than I am of Christianity, but seeing Christian would-be Theocrats talk about Islam as being something completely different from Christianity is annoying. They have the same roots, they share many of the same values, and they would both take over if they had their way.
