All we need is someone to swear oath to The Book of Lucifer in the Satantic Bible to continue our religious diversity of this country.
And by that token Somalian muslims sure get upset defending a "fairytale" that's definitely not theirs either.


Jewish Christians were not originally Europeans or the Europeans original religious belief I will agree, but they were "whites" living in the Roman Empire and did spread their belief over 1700 years ago voluntarily to Europeans who mostly voluntarily adopted it and more so than even Jews did.

It's not incomplete most Anglos in the 1780s would have next to zero awareness or concern for Islam. A middle eastern or African muslim would have no real way of getting to America, or any way of surviving and being accepted into any community.


What the founder had in mind was freedom of conscience without government inducement or meddling. So Americans would be free to believe in a religion or none. That's a different concept from foreigners coming in with a foreign religion.

Actually, there was a significant number of Muslims in the country in the 1780's, and the Founding Fathers were keenly aware of other religions such as Hinduism as well as Islam. You might want to peruse the link for actual information rather than your opinion.

... and, we rely upon some in dangerous under-cover situations. These men and women literally put their lives on the line, often totally alone and without a safe exit, to help keep us safe. Even though our stupid president could easily blow their cover with a careless word.

That they would still do this even on behalf of so many of the ungrateful troglodytes we have among us is astounding.

No not a significant number, a "muslim" or "middle eastern" sounding name does not a muslim make. They would just as likely be a few Christian refugees from the middle east and Islam slipped into Europe and on to America. It's kind of like not every Jew from Europe had a Jewish name.

I'm telling you the theory or philosophy behind freedom of religion.

Today, she travels the country teaching the Constitution to state and local government officials, as well as citizen groups, and others. Your loss.

Everyone is free to remain ignorant. My parents always told me, "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink."
You should sign up. There's likely a reason your parents kept saying that to you. Clearly it retained, but didn't sink in.

Well, Barrack Obama family on both sides were slave owners, on his mammas side in the South and his Muslim side in Africa, so maybe their were some similarities. Barrack Hussian Obamas fathers family probably sold slaves to his Mammas family
