Tennessee Lt. Governor: Islam Arguably a Cult, God Controls Global Warming

Tennessee Lieutenant Governor Ron Ramsey, while campaigning for governor in Chattanooga, responded to a question about "a threat that's invading our country from the Muslims" by saying Islam is arguably a cult.

Ramsey's complete response begins at 3:35 in the clip below, and includes this:
"Now, you could even argue whether being a Muslim is actually a religion, or is it a nationality, way of life, cult, whatever you want to call it. Now certainly we do protect our religions, but at the same time this is something we are going to have to face."

Ramsey later told Talking Points Memo he's concerned "far too much of Islam has come to resemble a violent political philosophy more than peace-loving religion."

The day after that campaign appearance, Ramsey told a crowd of Tea Party supporters this about global warming: "Maybe the world is getting warmer, I don't know. But if it is, it's arrogant of us as human beings to say we're the ones that's cause of it ... God is in control of that, period, period." (6:00)
