It bothers me that people think its just fine to tell people to leave our country because of dislike of one's dress or religion. WTF is wrong with this country?
A free society affords people the opportunity to voice the opinion, be it right or wrong. Many Islamic countries do not afford non-Muslims that same opportunity.

WTF seems to be crude and overused. There are many other words that project a more credible response.

I'm glad all this in-fighting is playing right into the hands of the enemy. Awesome.

The moral equivalency is strong in this one.

I'm a Christian, and you are absolutely right that I would love to see some changes in how this country is run. We try to effect such changes by doing things like voting our consciences, writing letters to our congressmen, signing petitions, trying to persuade people to our positions, and so on. We don't gun down random people while shouting "Praise Jesus!"

If you can't see the difference between how Christians try to effect change and how Muslims do it, I would suggest removing your head from the sand and taking a closer look.

Sweet huh?

This is the trouble with islamists. When in majority they want sharia and when in minority they ask for rights which they never allow to any minority in Islamic sewers of nations.

Typical response when one points out the glaring similarities between the world's most popular religions.

No; I believe you misunderstood. These photos demonstrate a much more relaxed society of Muslim people in past times in Tehran, in which burkas and hijabs were worn far less frequently. Tehran was a more secular city back then. Muslim women had much more freedom just fifty years ago.

Refresh of link:

vintage everyday: Pictures of Tehran, Iran, ca. 1960s-1970s

Now Google "Tehran today", and see for yourself the stark difference that radical Islam has brought to this once-beautiful city.

No, the country was founded deists.

Yes, our country is mostly filled with Christians.

See, I have no plan to get rid of anyone because I believe in equality and religious freedom for all. My point, which you continue to miss, is that all people should be allowed to practice their religious beliefs without being harassed for it.

Sometimes that's all I've got. There is sometimes absolutely nothing of value from the quoted person to even entertain.

As I've said, ad nauseum, yes we do have the right to be *******s. But I don't think it engenders a wonderful society to live in either when we abuse that right.
