Republican congressional candidate Mark Greenberg questioned whether Islam was a peaceful religion Thursday and said he believed it was “a cult in many respects.”
His remarks were made in a radio interview on WNPR’s “Where We Live” program.
For nearly 50 minutes, Greenberg, a candidate in the 5th District congressional race, chatted with host John Dankosky about his campaign and his beliefs. His remarks on Islam came in the last few minutes of the interview.
Greenberg said he believes the United States is a melting pot of different cultures, but added that Judeo-Christian values are the fiber of the country and what made it great.
“They came to the country for what made it great,” Greenberg said of immigrants.
