Islamic people have a more positive presence in this society than Conservatives do. I say we encourage Islamic people to come, greatly value those who are here, and kick Conservatives out. This would benefit this country mightily.

By the way, they are a proud people, a noble people. How ignorant to focus on the worst segment and try to attribute that to the whole. This is the Conservative way and it stinks.

I've never understood why they WANT to come, they are hypocrites to their religion by living in a Country that does not follow their caveman era laws.

No, they aren't. The legal codes of Saudi Arabia are different from the legal codes of Somalia are different from the legal codes of Afghanistan. Sharia law is not written in stone. It's interpreted, and interpreted differently, not just by the different Islamic faiths, but by individual religious leaders. One imam might interpret a passage in the Q'uran differently than another imam. Just like Christianity varies between Catholics and Methodists and Pentecostals and Baptists, and the variations within each of these Christian faiths, Islam varies as well.

As for caveman era laws, Islamic law reflects the religious beliefs of Abraham, just as Judaism and Christianity does. All three are very similar in much of their teachings. The similarities vastly outweigh the differences. And Islam is the youngest of the three. It's not paleolithic at all.

You never know.... That's why there are only 0.6-0.8% Muslims in the US

Indeed. I'm quite confident the majority of this majority is completely ignorant about Islam and the truth regarding things like how many terrorist attacks on U.S. soil are committed by Muslim extremists vs Jewish extremists, or the fact that polls demonstrate a higher likelihood to justify such acts among Christians than Muslims, etc. They buy into the hype about Muslims purely because they are such a minority here.

Which brings us back full circle to the admission of this spokesman for the anti-Muslim "majority" on this board, that they don't care what's right or wrong, only how popular the opinion is. That's where these people throw in their chips. Essentially, they've no greater moral compass than the terrorists they're so afraid of.

Harrier votes no.

Why should it be halted?

As long as they are legal immigrants, what relevance has faith affiliation?
