Serious Question

First I was just appalled at this:
On the November 14 edition of his CNN Headline News program, Glenn Beck interviewed Rep.-elect Keith Ellison (D-MN), who became the first Muslim ever elected to Congress on November 7, and asked Ellison if he could "have five minutes here where we're just politically incorrect and I play the cards up on the table." After Ellison agreed, Beck said: "I have been nervous about this interview with you, because what I feel like saying is, 'Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies.' " Beck added: "I'm not accusing you of being an enemy, but that's the way I feel, and I think a lot of Americans will feel that way."
But then I had to ask myself, do people really think this way? That question, or anything remotely like it, never even crossed my mind. When I heard that a Muslim had been elected to Congress my first thought was "well, it's about time!" But maybe I'm in the minority in far more ways than I realize.
