Michele Presnell, North Carolina Lawmaker, Links Islamic Prayer To Terrorism: Report

Posted by

Huff Post: North Carolina state Rep. Michele Presnell (R-Burnsville) linked Islamic prayer to terrorism in an email sent to a constituent, the News & Observer reported Tuesday.

In an email exchange obtained by the Raleigh newspaper, Presnell was asked by a constituent if she would support an Islamic prayer being said before a state legislative meeting.

“No, I do not condone terrorism,” Presnell responded, according to the report. “We just need to start taking a stand on our religious freedom or it will be whisked away from us.”

The email exchange between Presnell and the constituent, Britt Kaufmann, began over Presnell’s support for House Resolution 494, a bill that would allow North Carolina to declare an official state religion. Presnell was a co-sponsor of the bill, which was killed by the legislature’s Republican speaker last week. Kaufmann wrote to Presnell to express opposition to the proposal.

    Well, I wonder how many Islamic prayers Ms. Michle Presnell has read … I think we should invite her to read TMT -- The Muslim Times
