Faith voices around the country have started a petition calling for Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) to apologize to Rep. Ralph Ellison (D-MN). If there is any doubt that Virgil Goode needs to hear the calm voice of American tolerance, watch the two videos below.

Compare Goode’s rant to Ellison’s gracious behavior on the floor of Congress yesterday. Watch below to see who goes over to introduce himself to Rep. Goode.

    It is good to see the graciousness of Keith Ellison. It’s sad to see however that Mr. Goode is clueless. He doesn’t seem to understand that his statements are xenophobic. No one cares what book he uses in the oath taking, but he brought this on by responding to Mr. Ellison’s choice. His comments on immigration are in fact xenophobic and could be taken as racist and anti-Muslim.

    Great post!

    In a way I’m thankful for Goode for making plain what many people feel and don’t express. And Rep. Ellison responded perfectly. If this is an example of how the new congress will approach one another, I am hopefully optimistic.
