Goode [Virginia: A Republican congressman] triggered angry responses from an Islamic civil rights group and some of his colleagues by his letter to constituents who e-mailed him about a new Minnesota congressman's [Keith Ellison] decision to use the Quran at his private swearing-in ceremony.

"I will not be putting my hand on the Quran," Goode said at a news conference Thursday at the Franklin County Courthouse.

In a letter earlier this month to hundreds of constituents about Rep.-elect Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, Goode warned that strict immigration policies are necessary "to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the United States of America."
