- the Huffington Post hosted a discussion between Rep. John Bennett and CAIr director Adam Soltani.
Rep. John Bennett, R-Sallisaw, has not backed down from comments he made calling Islam a cancer and questioning its validity as a religion.
Bennett recently appeared on an episode of Free Speech Zone on HuffPost Live, along with Adam Soltani, director of the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Bennett continued to reiterate his beliefs that the Muslim faith was dangerous to America.
Alyona Minkovski moderated the Webisode and ended the discussion by calling Bennetts comments wholly disturbing.
Soltani called Bennetts statements about the Koran absolutely falses, its just lies, its just bigotry. You open it up, you read it and you see its a book about peace.
