Quite frankly, the chairwoman either doesn't read her Koran or doesn't believe it. One or the other. Islam is about as peaceful and inclusive as a Klan meeting. Okla. lawmakers return donated Qurans Gifts returned to diversity panel; lawmaker says book condones killing The Associated Press Updated: 1:27 p.m. CT Oct 24, 2007 OKLAHOMA CITY - A gift intended to promote diversity in Oklahoma is generating controversy instead. Several state lawmakers are returning copies of the Quran to a state panel on diversity after one lawmaker claimed the Muslim holy book condones the killing of innocent people. In a letter to colleagues, state Representative Rex Duncan says "most Oklahomans do not endorse the idea of killing innocent women and children in the name of ideology." At least 17 other legislators have notified the Governor's Ethnic American Advisory Council that they too will return the gift. The council's chairwoman, herself a Muslim, is denouncing Duncan's assessment of Islam. She says Islam not an ideology but a religion, and a "very peaceful, very inclusive" one. In Washington, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations calls Duncan's statement "disturbing" and "offensive."
