Prager Responds:

I Raised the Issue? "It was Keith Ellison who raised the entire issue of taking an oath on a Koran rather than a Bible. He did not make his announcement in the hopes that it would be ignored but to make a statement. I was responding to that statement. Critics who are unhappy with it becoming an issue should direct their ire at Mr. Ellison."

Racist? "I wrote in my column that I apply the same standard to Jews, Scientologists and everyone else. Those who make this charge merely cheapen the word racism..."

Islamophobic? "I wrote not a word against Islam or the Koran and made it clear at the beginning of my column that nothing I write is specific to Islam or the Koran."

Bigoted? Bigoted against whom? Against non-Christians? I am a non-Christian. Am I bigoted against myself?

"I am for no law to be passed to prevent Keith Ellison or anyone else from bringing any book he wants to his swearing-in, whether actual or ceremonial. But neither I nor tens of millions of other Americans will watch in silence as the Bible is replaced with another religious text for the first time since George Washington brought a Bible to his swearing-in. It is not I, but Keith Ellison, who has engaged in disuniting the country."

  1. It's an essential debate for which Mr. Prager deserves praise and support for persevering in.

    It's not about laws, it's about ethics, about commonly understood values and commonly upheld traditions. This is the soft underbelly of our civic, and specifically Ameican, culture. Mr. Prager is right to be vigilant about it. And you are right to bring attention to Mr. Prager.
