My problem starts at the "submission" thing, if you believe you must follow all the instructions of the Koran and the Hadith, we'd best get you the hell out of our country now.
That can be said for more than just one religion, the book of leviticus comes to mind.
Douche bags like reverend Phelps has found a nice way to twist the bible into hate. Thing is he lives in an open society that allows it.
Gay marraige is a hot topic in the West opposed by most religions, I don't agree with them on this but I certainly don't want to strip them of the right to say it.
Christains have gotten people fired, books removed from libraries, songs removed from radio, advertisers to boycott shows, science challenged in the classroom etc etc etc....no biggie....but if a Muslim were to do any of those things....well....you know the rest.
I don't have a problem with the head scarf....it is simply a symbol of your belief, like a cross, a cresent, or a star of David........no biggie.....
Why did you bring it up then if it's no biggie?
But when it comes to the veil, there I draw the line.
I don't, if the woman chooses to wear it.
If you are wearing a tent, whether you chose to or you were forced into it, you don't belong here.
Why? If someone chooses to wear it, let them. What kind of freedom are we promoting here. I don't like baggy pants on kids but I'm not about to kick them out because of it.
Liberty is a good word.
