Yes. Of course Sen. Jason Rapert, who mans God's hotline in Arkansas, went there. He calls for an end to entry of Muslims into these exceptional  United States of America.

Two inconvenient facts:

* Some 12 million Muslims live in the U.S. now. Are they to be deported along with the 11 million undocumented immigrants here? Going to be a busy year for Greyhound.

* The U.S. Constitution bans use of a religious test for holding a public office or position of public trust. The  founders would seem to frown on imposing a religious test for entry. There's also that pesky establishment clause that nominally prevents elevating one religion over another.

And, no, he's not backing down. Nor is he adhering to factual comment, but, then, that's Rapert.
