Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins says a law enforcement training program that critics have called anti-Muslim will go on as planned.
Political correctness is always petty, often infuriating, and sometimes does no permanent harm. But occasionally it's a threat to the nation's security. When a paperclip general at the Pentagon surrenders to the enemy at the first sound of the popguns, the harm can be permanent.
I agree with former FBI counterterrorism agent John Guandolo that the Boston Marathon bombings are a continuation of a Muslim jihad against the United States ("Former FBI agent predicts more attacks in Muslim jihad," Web, April 21). That's why I think the gun-control issue and immigration-reform issue are oxymorons.

A federal judge will hear arguments Monday on a preliminary injunction against one of the most contentious ballot measures in this month's elections -- an Oklahoma referendum that banned state courts from considering international or Islamic law when deciding cases.

He said he was surprised by the backlash.
