    That list is alarming. And it certainly is a wake-up call that needs to be sounded.

    Should America (home of the free and the brave) limit those than can be in governmental positions based on their religion?

    What happens when the Catholics are in office? Are you ok with them banning all Baptists?

    I normally agree with OR; and I've had my run-ins with Matt. But I'm with Matt on thos one.

    Sorry, OR; that message doesn't pass the giggle test.

    Consider: in order for the analogy of rattlesnakes and jihadists to work, one must accept as fact that anyone with a middle eastern name is a jihadist. If you can't say definitively that every middle eastern person is a jihadist--and remember, many of those middle easterners are not muslim, but hindu, sikh, and other non-muslim middle eastern religions--then the analogy is ludicrous and bordering on, if not flat-out, racist.

    As Matt pointed out: one of the main premises of the founding of our country is religious freedom; not religious freedom only for Christians.

    No need to apologize for being on the side of freedom :).

    We should stop Islamic immigration to the USA forever. Here in the area where I live we have the Islamic Society of North America, a Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization umbrella agency. Long ago Islam began a slow infiltration of the USA.

    Islam is not a religion but a military, political organization with some nationalistic Arab theology thrown in for good measure. It resembles Nazism or Stalinism.

    It is an error to assign religious liberty to Islam just as it would be an error to assign religious liberty to the KKK because they burn crosses.

    Muslims are being given preferential treatment in this country. In Minnesota colleges installed foot baths for Muslim students to wash their feet before prayer. {Sand boxes would have sufficed.} Some Federal judges are recognizing Sharia law in certain cases. An Oklahoma Constitutional Amendment banning use of Sharia Law was struck down by a Federal Judge!

    Well said! I agree wholeheartedly!

    The impact of increased Muslim population is shown in the following:

    We have a new airport here in Indianapolis and they installed foot baths for the taxi drivers who are Somalians, etc. I think that Minneapolis has over 100,000 Somalians.

    On your statistics on the impact of Islamists in free countries, even a low percentage means trouble. In Canada, they have demands for sharia law in certain cities. In much of Europe, there is an epidemic of rape. What happens is that the Islamists take over whole cities. In France and elsewhere, there are whole areas where the police do not go.

    Islamists have 4 wives and put the additional wives and children on welfare.

    It is as if we are paying for parasites to infect us.

    Consider Dearborn, Michigan! I heard about this on the news, fox I suppose since I watch no other!



    People better wake up. All this is happening while there is a concerted attack on Christianity by the leftist democrats.

    YOu may not remember the saying that "Your freedoms go as far as the tip of my nose! When your freedom hits my nose, it is no longer freedom!"

    We have age and citizenship requirements for public offices, as well as residency requirements, so I see nothing wrong with requiring public office holders holding to the principles America was built upon. If they want to be a radical Muslim, let them move to a country that is under the rule of radical Islam and run for office there.

    Freedom has a price, and it definitely has its demarcation lines and perimeters!

    Because of "political correctness" and the "deliberate blindness" of some people Muslims are having an exceptional influence in this country relative to their numbers! {Reference post # 8.}

    The principles America was built upon was religious freedom and no religious test for office. Maybe you need to go reread our Constitution (you know one of those things that defined the principles America was built upon). Let me quote for you:

    Islam is a political and military system much like Stalinism/Nazism--the fact that there is a dogma/theology does not make it a religion anymore than communism and fascism who also had a set of beliefs or a theology is a religion. No one ever seriously considered them as religions.

    Trying to say Islam is not a religion just makes you look foolish. You really should stop.

    Yet you constantly ignore the military-political system of Islam in your analysis of the religion. Mohammed was both a general and a head of state as well as a husband of little girls. So his theology is more like Stalinism in that it is a cult of personality that has specific legal prescriptions for states and, as typical of oriental despotism, it combines the head of the religion and the head of state in the systematic pure form of Islam. If it is a pure religion, then it is a temple of doom type system. What other religion of the world calls for systematic female genital mutilation--well, maybe Buddhism.

    You do realize that Jesus Christ will lead an army and set up a kingdom here on this earth, right? That's a military-political system as well. If you wish to declassify Islam as a religion for your above reasons, then you must also declassify Christianity.

    What a false analogy! You are saying that Muhammad is like the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. You are saying that Christianity is a temple of doom wherein girls are mutilated and priests are also dictators and people are beheaded by terrorists. That is what is wrong with your classification of Islam as less than a complex of military, political and Arab nationalistic prescriptions combined.

    I see you aren't able to engage the part of your brain that applies logic. Have a good day sir.
