Over the course of two decades, the federal government’s Refugee Resettlement Program has forcibly infused the Minneapolis-St. Paul area of Minnesota with a large dose of Somali culture, and the transition has not always been smooth.
Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., told WND that while many of the Somali transplants have been hard-working citizens, the experiment has been costly for her state. And too many Somalis remain dependent on public assistance.
“We have the largest population of Somalis in the United States, and Somalia is a failed state. It is based on piracy for ransom and fraud,” Bachmann said.
She said the war-torn east African country is in a state of desperation, with an economy that more closely resembles the stone-age than the information age.
“And so tens of thousands of Somalis have been lifted out of a completely different situation and dropped into Minnesota,” Bachmann said. “They have been brought here in many cases by Catholic Charities and Lutheran Social Services and made homes here, but the problems of radicalization have come to Minnesota as well”…

Why are Catholic and Lutheran groups involving themselves with Muslim “refugees”?
I am ready to permanently forsake any branch of Christianity that does not recognize the threat posed by Islam (I believe that Eastern & Oriental Orthodoxy are still highly unsympathetic to Islam).
