U.S. Sen. Doug Jones visits Alabama mosque

Source: AL.com, by Greg Garrison


U.S. Sen. Doug Jones visited the Hoover Crescent Islamic Center on Saturday night, giving a speech to about 200 Muslims before they broke their daytime fasting with an evening meal after sunset in observance of their holy month of Ramadan.

More than 20,000 Muslim voters - about the margin of victory for Jones - turned out and voted in December almost without exception for Jones, said Khaula Hadeed, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Alabama.

Hadeed said Moore had called Islam a "false religion" and made other disparaging remarks about Muslims and their faith. Muslims invited Moore to visit a mosque last year but did not receive a response, she said.

Jones, a longtime member of Canterbury United Methodist Church in Mountain Brook, said it was the first time he has been inside a mosque. Officials with CAIR of Alabama said they were not aware of any Alabama senator having previously ever visited a mosque in the state.

2. His first term holds until January 2021.

If the Dotard impacts the next two election cycles the same way the election of Barack Obama did down here, there's a chance this state could go back to traditional southern Democratic values (kinda Blue Doggish, but helped guarantee Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House!) - and stop listening to carpetbaggers from New York City!

It takes every Alabamian to make a difference - Christian, Muslim, Jew - and the "nones," too!
