You might not hate "Christians" but knowing a bunch of Southern Baptists on my in-laws side, they can barely tolerate Catholics, or anyone not like them. They will judge anybody with the best of them -- after all if you're not saved...
It vaguely reminds me of Muslims and dhimmis.

Should laws based upon Southern Baptist beliefs be targeted too?
American Thinker: Islam's Global War against Christianity

Make nice, support Muslims. Just don't forget the Parable of the Snake:

Quote:
Once upon a time there was a serpent who was badly injured in a fight with another animal. It managed to slither away to safety but would have surely died if a benevolent man had not seen it suffering by the side of the road. The goodly man carefully wrapped the snake up and took it to his house, where he bestowed the kindest and gentlest care on the snake until it was healed and could return to the wild. Just as the man was releasing the serpent back into the grass, the ungrateful snake turned and bit him on the hand.

"What did you do that for?" cried the man, who knew that the bite of this particular snake was usually fatal. "Didn't I take care of you when no one else would?"

The snake shrugged (no small feat for a snake!) and replied to the benevolent--and now doomed-- man, "What did you expect? You knew I was a snake when you picked me up."

Seems to me that in America, our courts should continue to base decisions on the laws of our country, not religion or other country's law. Britain, apparently is already using the Sharia Law in 85 Courts. When does a country stop being its own country?

There are 22 nations in the world with a Muslim majority. In nearly all of those countries women and non-Muslims are second class citizens BY LAW. Islam is nothing more than a philosophy and a rather distasteful one at that. Legislating against the adaptation of it is no different than legislating against child abuse or rape.

I say good for the people in Oklahoma and to hell with CAIR. They are nothing more than a front group for the justification of typical Islamic beliefs that terrorism is justified, misogyny should be the law of the land and religions other than Islam are inherently inferior:

Well, law and religion cannot be tied together in this nation. There is no separation of religion and laws in Sharia law.

There are, actually, times when courts in this country have used religious law (usually Jewish, AFAIK) in civil cases in things like divorces where both parties agree that is the system they want to work under. It's basically binding arbitration in a court

Only an ounce of prevention.

Our constitution can not withstand, equality of religion and civil liberties, you know all those things that makes America....special. I suspect Sharia will be amended to our constitution faster than any one can say, okie dokey...

I have this to say about the towel head enemies of our Nation called CAIR. Go to hell where muhammad is forever. On 9-11,I got to see all of shariah law carried out I needed to see to know it is nothing I will ever accept, but will fight to prevent being used in MY Country!!! I say if the muslims feel discriminated against in my Country, then pack their crap and get out.
