Please educate yourself before you start defending people that hate liberals more than even the most hard core rednecks.
I am well educated on the subject, thank you.

Those women are AMERICANS.

And I don't know how you treat guests but I don't tell them to go home because I don't like what they are wearing.

The cult brainwashes inbred followers into hating everything and everyone except teachings of an imaginary dude who at best can be termed as vile.

Christians believe they are Christians first and foremost before anything else and are told to reject the world in favor of the Bible.

Where is the consistency? The above actions were allowed and supported while people are being chastised for just saying anything negative about symbols of Islamic terrorism.
For the most part (I hesitate to say that), the roles are flipped. People who wanted Confederate flag censorship don't want Muslim attire censorship, and vice-versa. I made the observation that some of the same people that were against Confederate flag censorship would not support the right or prefer Muslims to not wear their attire in public.

The desire for consistency is not difficult to understand.

Does that make sense? That is some incredibly backwards thinking, and that is dangerous. Have you ever heard the saying, "two wrongs don't make a right"?? Neither situation is O.K.

My goodness.

This is why I don't respond to your posts. You act like a judge and jury. It's ridiculous to simply "argue" for the sake of arguing. You can make a valid point and I can debate it and vice versa but to just name call back and forth is for children. There is no reason to keep it up. I made my point, you made yours, we disagree. End of story.

Ironically you are arguing against the man who made outspoken negative comments about someone he knew nothing about in a restaurant while calling others hypocrites. Funny how that works isn't it.

Gotta love the ignore button. You should try it out sometimes.
Nah, I presented multiple counter examples to your posts, to which you had no response, but if you want to hide behind your e-feelings getting hurt because I questioned your different reactions to two similar situations, that's fine.

The country was founded by Christians and is over 70% Christian and less than 1 % Muslims. So your plan is to get rid of the majority...brilliant.
