Is this true about the Koran, the holy scriptures of Islam?
The Koran influenced the thinking of the Founding Fathers of our country. This is according to U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim Congressman.
In today's Detroit Free Press, Ellison, a Detroit native, said:
The Quran is "definitely an important historical document in our national history and demonstrates that Jefferson was a broad visionary thinker who not only possessed a Quran, but read it."
My familiarity with the Quran is less than minimal. Anybody have any reaction to the validity of Congressman Ellison's claim?
