Muslims: Some of my dearest friends are Muslim.
I also have Catholic friends, Mormon friends, Lutheran
friends, Baptist friends, Church of Christ friends, Jewish
friends and a lot of other friends. My Muslim friends
have no desire to harm me nor anyone else.
I hate to break this to you, but if you say you hate Islam, you are a bigot.
Me? A Bigot? https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bigot
"person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (such as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance"
If You hate Islam, then you hate these people: Muslim celebrities You hate your Muslim neighbors. You hate MY Muslim friends that you have never met. The very definition of bigotry, hating a group because they are different than you.
Under Trump, The Islamophobic Administration
Some Muslims may have a good reason for holding a grudge against the United States? What if we had acted three years sooner in Bosnia?
This is sad on so many levels and reminds me of what happened here in Murfreesboro, Tennessee:
Murfreesboro Mosque News:
I hate hate: http://www.limbaughlooper2016.com/intolerance.html
But David, why don't Muslims condemn the violence? They DO! Condemn The Violence!
The First Amendment does not allow us to put a litmus test on a religion for entry into our nation.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
What frustrates me is how some people are so vocal about their Second Amendment rights but are willing to drive a luxury liner through the First Amendment:
Perhaps we start a true dialogue with people who are out to harm us? Find out what their true issues are?
Why they hate us Please check out http://www.limbaughlooper016.com/war-on-terrorism.html
99% of Muslims do not want to harm us. How many Muslim extremists are there? Just the facts, please. More information on the Muslim faith: Muslims and Islam: Key findings in the U.S. and around the world
Perhaps if we can dig into the issues motivating some people into wanting to do us harm we can diminish the threat? If some are against us because of their economic lot in life, or lack of resources or even hope, perhaps we get the Peace Corps involved?
I know Peace Corps doesn't stop ISIS. But to stop the next generation of haters, what if we improve some roads, create some irrigation, build some schools and hospitals, create an economy with jobs and some futures? Can we try another Marshall type Plan or take an improved and more effective LBJ Great Society on a world tour? Never know until we try.
