Islam has no place in a civilized society!
Please, don't impugn liberals with your claim to be liberal.

Is that what those people were doing? 'Discussing'?

Nah, they're UT students, and neither of them feel like going back to Chicago or Seattle right now.

Why should they be scared when they are all packing heat, as I read right here on C-D all the time?

Scared people should not carry weapons!

On the other hand, why wouldn't those women be shocked? This, after all, is supposed to be America, where we are free to practice our religion.

I guess those women just took that part of our constitution 'too literally'???

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?
Tired of Muslims killing innocent people. Tired of our Liberals giving Muslims a pass for raping young girls, chopping people's heads off, throwing gays off buildings, turning Christian and yaddizi girls into sex slaves, blocking Christians escaping Muslim oppression while letting in ISIS Muslims as 'refugees,' and trying to kill the 1st amendment allowing people to criticize a warped religion (philosophy) that says it's okay to do all the things they are in fact doing in the name of the religion.

That is one of the things that make America great, isn't it? America is not Basrah.

Why are people so willing to throw away our constitutional rights and trash our very concepts of personal freedom that make America a place where many people want to live?

I could give a crap either way, but the fact is, if you start yelling at someone and they feel afraid for their safety and that it could escalate to harm, you are committing assault.

It's a Class A Misdemeanor in Texas, but nonetheless, it is a crime. Voicing your opinion in a public forum is not the same as picking an individual an berating them directly.

I don't know why this is so complicated for people.
I don't know why you are pressing this point. Had he committed a crime, I am quite certain that they would have had him arrested. Neither of the women said anything however about feeling threatened by his comments. They were offended and hurt by his words and because the manager did not throw him out and because the patrons did not defend them. Neither woman uttered a word about feeling scared for their safety. I certainly wouldn't be calling this a non-issue had he crossed that line. But he didn't.

What is sharia law? Choosing to wear a scarf on one's head?
