“One who speaks rashly is like thrusts of a sword - Proverbs 12:18
On December 21, 2006, while revieweing our national mainstream news there was one that caught my attention: the Islamophobic irresponsible comments made by an obscure U.S. Rep. Virgil H. Goode Jr. regarding immigration issues and how the lack of an immigration bill would put our national security in peril by letting masses of Islamic aliens enter our country.
Goode's problem in bridling his tongue is used by this writer to describe Goode's problem in controlling his tongue. Bridle and Bridingly has been used extensively by Hebrew scholars when writing Biblical related studies.
This is the kind of political rethoric that instead of helping our national security leaders in the fight against terrorism, only serves to entice and ellicit a deadly response by some terrorist group.
For clarification purposes, this writer does not imply that this terrorist group will be an Islamic one. A terrorist group can be from any ethnic or religious background.
My guess is that Goode will need some serious counseling by his 110th House of Representative bosses when he takes office next month.
