    Reason #754 why I will NEVER live in the cesspool of Illinois. What pandering!

  • snap boy

    Actually I have no problem with that – no more than a Jew or a Muslim praying when in a church.

  • Remco Kimber

    Does this guy know what he’s doing vis-a-vis his “purported” religion of Catholicism?

    Exodus 20,
    I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

    Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

    Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

    Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God

    Is there a special prize for being the first dhimmi in line?

  • Sasja

    Oh, my.

    snap boy. You may not realize it, but whether you have a problem is of no consequence. God may.

  • Marsh626

    Lots of libtards have embraced islam and muslims lately. The view muslims as the new black people of our age. They see we conservatives criticizing the ugly aspects of their religion and view it as a modern KKK crusade against non-WASPs. The Left thinks they’re protecting the brown skinned muslims from we toothless neo-confederate rednecks. *eyeroll*

  • Bob

    Quinn is a joke and an idiot. The public unions don’t even like him now.

    The libs have taken the muslims to their breasts. Just like Cleopatra took an asp to hers. They will eventually understand the monster they have enabled. Or maybe not until it is too late.

    Just think about it. The dims have embraced ALL our enemies in order to retain power. At the same time they have dissed and/or destroyed ALL of our allies. Has anyone forgotten obama negotiated with FARC in Columbia and their ilk when he was running for president? The dims, and especially obama, are in league with the bad guys of this world. You know, the ones our country has been fighting for centuries.

  • Adirondack Patriot

    He just wants to score with a pre-teen girl like Muhammmed.

    But seriously, this is why Islam is not a religious issue. Islam has become a political issue. If you criticize Islam for political reasons, they call it a religion and complain about persecution. When you cave in and treat it as a religion, they use it to promote politics.

  • Redwine

    Non-Muslims generally fail to understand that once you say the shahada, the Islamic profession of faith, at any time in your life, you are considered a Muslim. This the idea behind Muslim activists getting schoolchildren into mosques or doing that “Muslim for a day” thing, or getting unwitting adults to “learn”with mosque visits or repeating “stuff”. It’s taqiya. Lying as a subterfuge.

    Quinn is a Muslim. He’s now showing you that he is.

    Some sick and pretentious ritual. But if they are wanting to Islamic, Catholics won’t mind.

    If he now goes to church, does that make him an apostate? Can we ask the muslims to put a fatwa on him?

  • Joisey

    To snap boy. When I go to a temple or other religious location that is not of my faith, I don’t say their prayers. If I pray at all, I do so in accordance with my faith.

    Have no idea what Quinn’s faith is, if any, but I guarantee you that unless it’s Islam, they don’t pray the way this video shows.

    Clearly, this guy is stupid enough to be govenor of Illinois; an A$$ kisser of the first order.

  • BarbaraS

    I wonder. Is this guy praying to God or to allah? Or could it be Gaia?

    #3, RK,

    When you’re not sure what you believe, it’s more than likely that you’ll believe anything.

    They worship on the altar of Pandering.

  • MaryW

    #3 RemcoKimber

    You are 100% correct.

  • Major Kong


    Unfortunately the problem is the preponderance of moronic voters in Illinois that would elect an empty suit like Quinn in the first place. I’ve little doubt that he’ll be re-elected a couple of years from now. Illinois is indeed a cesspool of corruption and stupidity as was earlier pointed out. If and when the existing housing crisis improves, Illinois homeowners will be the last to feel its effects, so we are stuck. I don’t see how Illinois ever returns to fiscal health. For those of you in congressional and senate toss-up elections,DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!

  • snap boy

    Joisey, when I go a ritual of another faith I kneel when the congregants kneel, sit when they sit and stand when they stand. The governor is probably a Catholic…he’s definitely a dolt but that doesn’t mean he was praying to Allah.

  • Jim M

    No surprise here. For the left religion has always been a facade. They adopt whatever religious practices will advance their agenda. But with islam they play with fire. Once they give muslims enough power the muslims will cut all their throats.

  • czekmark

    Quinn praying to allah is multi-culturism at its best (worst).

  • Patty

    This really is sick, it looks like some witchy ritual. It has no place in a Political Pay Grade.

    #12 snap boy commented: Sasja, FYI. God doesn’t care where you’re standing, sitting, or kneeling or with whom you’ve linked arms —

    Hey, snappy, that’s not the point. Muslims do care, and they’re highly aggressive about it. Don’t you know anything about the 1,400-old Islamic tradition of unprovoked attacks on non-Muslims and destruction of their places of worship? Or the various other ways of coercing acceptance of Islamic domination?

    Whether or not God “cares” about Islamic belligerence and deceit, unfortunately it’s up to humans to resist. Dolts like Quinn are simply playing into the Muslim agenda of forcing the whole world under the jackboot of Islam.

  • atticcellar

    “Snappy” Knows not, the mint of God. He is a simple minded troll.

  • Radegunda

    Once again, snappy:

    It doesn’t matter which god Quinn thinks he’s praying to. What matters is what his actions tell Muslims (and others who know something about Islam).

    Muslims view every tiny accommodation of Islam by infidels in terms of dominance and submission. They see Quinn submitting to their god. It’s another victory of Islam over the infidels, and they are emboldened to make more and more demands.

  • the reason quinn is there praying is because islam is marxism with a god.

  • MamaGriz68

    I wish I could say this guy is a bad joke, but he is beyond pathetic. I still can’t believe the people of IL elected him when he was up in 2009. He is completely clueless and is making the problems of that state worse by the day. What’s really sad is that he thinks he is making allies there when those people would slice his head off in a second.

  • Patty

    Came across this and I just wonder what others think of this. Read whenever.

  • trillions

    Christians and Muslims believe in the same god. Abraham’s god. Moses’ god. Where they differ is in their belief that Jesus/Muhammad is the one true prophet/savior. Praying to god is the same for all Jews, Muslims and Christians.

  • #12 snap boy: FYI. God doesn’t care where you’re standing, sitting, or kneeling or with whom you’ve linked arms

    God: 2 Corinthians 6:14 — Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

    …try again, and this time, do some research before you make a fool of yourself….AGAIN.

    why is it weird GP??

    has no one been paying attention to my constant
    repetitive ad nauseum posts culminating with the

    Chrislam (#33)

    [You knew this day was going to come, when the liberal “love gospel”
    preachers who, desiring to fill their seats and bank accounts, would
    find a way to merge apostate christianity with the Devil’s religion of
    Islam. That day is here.]

    thank you Patty, that reminded me of the following (and much more):

    Christians to Pray as White House Observes Ramadan (#10)

    [The Rev. Johnny Hunter, an African-American pro-life leader who was
    arrested on the National Day of Prayer while praying outside the White
    House, said that by hosting the Ramadan observance President Obama
    “is distinctly placing Islam above Christianity.”]

    without a collective salvation for the country’ ….

  • Nelle

    #35, do Christians and Muslims believe in the same God whose only son died and rose from the dead to save us from our sins? Or do they believe in the same God who has no son?

  • jtb012u340

    Nothing weird about it. Pontius Pilate and Herod were at enmity one with another UNTIL Jesus Christ. Then, they became partners in crime to go against the LORD and His Christ. The problem with you Catholics is your church, your upbringing, you don’t read the Book and you listen to the wrong shepherd (Zech 11:17) and the wrong rock (Deut 32). Such are the ways of sin and death. I wish it weren’t so but it is.

  • vangrungy

    You are a liar or just stupid.

    “Christians and Muslims believe in the same god. Abraham’s god. Moses’ god. Where they differ is in their belief that Jesus/Muhammad is the one true prophet/savior. Praying to god is the same for all Jews, Muslims and Christians.”

    islam is REVISIONIST history. islam is REPLACEMENT theology. the quran is a PLAGIARISM of the Bible. allah is NOT the same god as the God of the Bible.

    mohammad was an illiterate sand monkey child rapist that claimed that the Bible was a corruption of the quran. He claimed that all the figures in the Bible were actually all muslims and reworked the stories of the Bible to twist the prophets into muslims.

    Jesus was NOT a muslim. Moses was NOT a muslim. the fact that the quran claims they were proves that the quran is a fraud.

    muslims know that the God of the Bible is not allah. That’s why they scream ALLAHU ACKBAR. literally translated to ALLAH IS GREATER


    Stop peddling the 3 Abrahamic faiths LIE. It has always been a ploy by Unity in diversity multiculturalists to fool Jews and Christians into accepting mohammad as an actual prophet and not the evil maniacal slave trading child rapist he is.

  • sheik yer’mami

    The governor also signed a new law to protect college students who miss a class or exam because they’re observing a religious holiday.

    It takes effect Jan. 1.

    Sounds just like the Hamburg pact of Umar!

    OT.. a small miracle happened within my family today..

    one of my devout Obama son in laws (ergo,
    hopefully my dear daughter as well) wrote:

    I’m sick to death of democratic politicians lying to me and republican
    politicians lying to me and news professionals lying to me and activists
    lying to me and pundits lying to me!

    not to mention:

    If journalists challenged ‘marketing facts’, misleading talking
    points and obfuscated data, I wonder how long it would take
    before these practices ended?

    FACTUAL TRUTHS are new to him, so i’ll go easy on him.. 😉

    When the islamists declare their fatwa on him, I guess Gov. Quinn could always claim he was just swatting at flies….

    Catholic praying to another religion’s God is EXCOMMUNICATION, Let’s see if the Liberal Bishop’s will do it.

    Every Catholic in Illinois Diocese Should email this to their Bishops.

  • Poppy Paulie

    Hey Snapboy. Time for you to grow up and do much reading about Islam, you dolt! Read about Muhammad and his life and tell me he was a holy man.
    Islam is as much a religion as Disneyworld only wicked.

    Muhammad, may he rot in hell, was an exact 180 of Jesus and from the dark, not of the light.
    He was one sicko. Read about him. It’s all in the koran. That’s one place the followingchanters won’t look because they’re too bust repeating the same BS.

  • Eldewek

    What you seem to be ignoring is the recent attacks in IL against Muslim places of worship by Acid bombs, arson, and graffiti on Muslim graves among others. Pat Quinn is sending a message of acceptance and rejection to hate mongers by lending his support to the Muslim community. You should try to learn more about Islam before making up some hogwash that you pulled from a website. If it is on the internet, it must be true, right?!!!…Idiots!!!

  • do you think that they would give him the same courtesy/respect??
    i wish someone would ask him


  • DJ

    Just because he prayed doesn’t make him a Muslim. He probably didn’t even know what was going on he was just being respectful. Actions speak louder than words people. There was also a pastor who attended, didn’t pray, but he was still respectful. Let the people do what they please just because it’s about Islam don’t make a big fuss about it. And this isn’t how we normally pray it’s a special prayer for the holiday. Salam.
