Madeline Albright and Gloria Steinem have both declared that they would register as a Muslim should the Trump administration demand Muslims do so. Firstly, this is an act which requires zero bravery because there are no consequences to saying so. None.
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said Wednesday she is prepared to “register as Muslim” in solidarity amid reports that President Trump plans to take executive action affecting immigrants to the U.S.
“I was raised Catholic, became Episcopalian & found out later my family was Jewish. I stand ready to register as Muslim in #solidarity,” Albright tweeted.
Albright’s tweet echoes the sentiment of feminist icon Gloria Steinem, who said Saturday she, too, would register as a Muslim if such a registry were required.
But, in the end, I think this is interesting mostly because it shows what the radical left thinks about religion. They clearly see religion as politics. Purely about this world and not the next. Neither considers the actual beliefs of each faith. No. It is purely a political statement.
I wonder how the two would get on with their fellow Muslims. Probably not so well.
