http://www.theblaze.com/stories/zombie-muhammad-atheist-who-was-attacked-by-angry-muslim-wants-shariah-ruling-judge-kicked-off-the-bench/ I have witnessed so many attacks on my religion by the courts, the government and by individuals that I could't begin to list them here. Just recently an piece of artwork was displayed (amongst others of its kind) that displayed a jar of urine with a cross submerged in it. Not only my artistic sensibilities were offended, my belief system, my faith was denegrated. I'd have to spend MILLIONS to gain any recourse in this matter. Lately as well, I've learned that Muslims in Dearborn MI are rallying for a change in our First Amendment to reflect Muslim sensibilites, they want to make it illegal to insult Islam's prophet. Trouble is, if you do not submit to that prophet and his mideval religion you automatically 'insult' the prophet. My faith in Jesus as the Son of God is offensive and insulting to the Imams. I'd have to become a Muslim to NOT OFFEND them. And that isn't going to happen. So, a law making it illegal to insult Islam is in effect, making any other world view than Islam illegal. Back to the link I posted; some atheist dressed up as a 'zombie mohammed' was attacked by a Muslim as he walked in a parade last Halloween. The Muslim man was arrested, but when the judge heard the case he, rather than lecture the LAW BREAKER WHO ASSULTED someone on AMERICAN law protecting persons from assult, set off lecturing the victim of the assult on his ignorance of Islamic law that forbids insulting Mohammed. There is NOW a UN resolution calling for making it illegal to insult Islam. OUR PRESIDENT has made a speech using the line; there is no place in the future for those who insult Islam and in that same speech once again, apologized for the making of a video (rumor has it that video in question was MADE BY A MUSLIM)that supposedly infuriated the Muslims so much they had to kill our Ambassador. NOW that we know al Qaeda killed our Ambassador in a planned and coordinated terror attack, the President still attaches blame for all of the violence on that video and its insult to Islam. I don't normally agree with denegrating anyones world view, their beliefs or religion. But in my research over the last four years the things I've learned about Islam have convinced me it is not a religion as we view religions, it is a theocratic ideology intent on world domination, the supression and denegration of every ethic we hold dear in Western Civilization such as freedom of speech and worth of every individual, and the oppression of women and children as less valuable than cattle. Don't believe me? READ THE QURAN. I also have found some very disturbing facts surrounding the terror group Muslim Brotherhood and its plan to dominate and eventually conquer Europe and America. The FBI is in possession of a document found in a raid of a terror cell, that lays out their plan. A plan which includes establishing sharia law in the West, using positions of security and authority gained by taqiyya (legal lying) in the governments of Europe and America. IF WE DO NOT WAKE UP TO THE DANGER WE FACE IT WILL SOON BE TO LATE.

You are absolutely right Debra. Our rights have been twisted to fit certain people. Affirmative Action in biased. Florida Public schools are changing their assessments based on race. This country elected a President based on race. Minorities get preference for government grants. Muslims are attacking CATHOLIC Universities for not having prayer space for them. It has gotten completely out of hand. I have to respect everything about you but f&*$^ me right?

I'm worried that one day we will wake up and there will be a law making it illegal to say anything against Islam. Or to search out any information on the web that tells the truth about their ideology. There is a resolution in the UN stating it is a crime to insult Islam. Our president if reelected may sign just such a thing. I do believe his sympathies lie with the Muslims.

I agree and believe that is very possible. If we thought the last four years were bad, just hang on! Our rights will go by the way side and we won't recognize this country in four years.

But they surely can come here, use our resources and create terror cells. Ah yes America!

Now... I know all of this will potentially go over your head, but meh why not. I am rather bored today. Have you read the Qu'ran? Probably not. In fact, if YOU actually read it you would find a lot of similarities to YOUR christian bible and much more. However, I debate whether or not people who are super scared of islam could understand it as they tend to ignore most of their own religious teachings. Women and children get oppressed and are seen as less valuable than cattle?!?! It sounds like what a certain political party is trying to do here you know controlling what a woman can do with her body and wanting to take away programs that help elderly and children like education and social security. They should just get rid of all religions, but alas what would people in countries like this do if they couldn't try to force their own religion in. So Muslims want the First Amendment to have a change in it and want to be able to follow laws based on their religion, just like Christians want their values to dictate what Americans can and can not do and have it added and amended into our Constitution and laws based around their religious beliefs. Sounds like a definite "Same Script, Different Cast" scenario. What they are doing is no different than what "christian" religious extremists are also trying to do. One can only hope that people read such documents as the "Treaty of Tripoli" and the true quotes from our founding fathers as the spoke out against religion and hope that our government remembers religion whether islam or christianity or judaism or any religion even mine... do not belong in our government. I want to say they have no right to protest changing laws in this country but if they live here legally of course then they have every right to protest and want laws changed just like the rest of the religions. I realize you most likely read none of that and are going to start spouting how I should be a prejudicial racist stereotyping person, but alas I have a brain and know that not everyone should be lumped together for a few.

Aida, I am a student of history. I have more books on history than most schools do. I've read every one of them at least once, some more than once. I realize you are as student as well. But what you are being taught is not actually how it really is. If you really are a seeker of truth, you do not accept blindly what you are told, you search for other view points and then make up your own mind without bias. The Treaty of Tripoli was enacted because the Muslims were attacking American merchant ships and taking American sailors into slavery. The clause in the Treaty that reads that America is not a Christian nation must be taken in context of the entire treaty. Those who attribute the Treaty of Tripoli quote to George Washington make two mistakes. The first is that no statement in it can be attributed to Washington (the treaty did not arrive in America until months after he left office); Washington never saw the treaty; it was not his work; no statement in it can be ascribed to him. The second mistake is to divorce a single clause of the treaty from the remainder which provides its context. It would also be absurd to suggest that President Adams (under whom the treaty was ratified in 1797) would have endorsed or assented to any provision which repudiated Christianity. In fact, while discussing the Barbary conflict with Jefferson, Adams declared: The policy of Christendom has made cowards of all their sailors before the standard of Mahomet. It would be heroical and glorious in us to restore courage to ours. Furthermore, it was Adams who declared: The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were. . . . the general principles of Christianity. . . . I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God; and that those principles of liberty are as unalterable as human nature. Adams' own words confirm that he rejected any notion that America was less than a Christian nation. Additionally, the writings of General William Eaton, a major figure in the Barbary Powers conflict, provide even more irrefutable testimony of how the conflict was viewed at that time. Eaton was first appointed by President John Adams as "Consul to Tunis," and President Thomas Jefferson later advanced him to the position of "U. S. Naval Agent to the Barbary States," authorizing him to lead a military expedition against Tripoli. Eaton's official correspondence during his service confirms that the conflict was a Muslim war against a Christian America. For example, when writing to Secretary of State Timothy Pickering, Eaton apprised him of why the Muslims would be such dedicated foes: Taught by revelation that war with the Christians will guarantee the salvation of their souls, and finding so great secular advantages in the observance of this religious duty [the secular advantage of keeping captured cargoes], their [the Muslims'] inducements to desperate fighting are very powerful. Eaton later complained that after Jefferson had approved his plan for military action, he sent him the obsolete warship "Hero." Eaton reported the impression of America made upon the Tunis Muslims when they saw the old warship and its few cannons: The weak, the crazy situation of the vessel and equipage tended to confirm an opinion long since conceived and never fairly controverted among the Tunisians, that the Americans are a feeble sect of Christians. In a later letter to Pickering, Eaton reported how pleased one Barbary ruler had been when he received the extortion compensations from America which had been promised him in one of the treaties: He said, "To speak truly and candidly . . . . we must acknowledge to you that we have never received articles of the kind of so excellent a quality from any Christian nation." When John Marshall became the new Secretary of State, Eaton informed him: It is a maxim of the Barbary States, that "The Christians who would be on good terms with them must fight well or pay well." And when General Eaton finally commenced his military action against Tripoli, his personal journal noted: April 8th. We find it almost impossible to inspire these wild bigots with confidence in us or to persuade them that, being Christians, we can be otherwise than enemies to Musselmen. We have a difficult undertaking! May 23rd. Hassien Bey, the commander in chief of the enemy's forces, has offered by private insinuation for my head six thousand dollars and double the sum for me a prisoner; and $30 per head for Christians. Why don't he come and take it? Shortly after the military excursion against Tripoli was successfully terminated, its account was written and published. Even the title of the book bears witness to the nature of the conflict: The Life of the Late Gen. William Eaton . . . commander of the Christian and Other Forces . . . which Led to the Treaty of Peace Between The United States and The Regency of Tripoli The numerous documents surrounding the Barbary Powers Conflict confirm that historically it was always viewed as a conflict between Christian America and Muslim nations. Those documents completely disprove the notion that any founding President, especially Washington, ever declared that America was not a Christian nation or people. The Treaty expressed the idea that the FEDERAL government, as opposed to the governments of Europe, did NOT HAVE a law making any religion THE religion. It does NOT SAY that America is not founded on Christian law (ten commandments) but instead founded as a safe haven for all beliefs. To understand this you must read the clause within its entire context: As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen [Muslims] and as the said States have never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

Well here is my take on it....everyone has freedom of expression and speech in this country. You don't have freedom from being offended. Heck all of us are offended by something all the time. So if the Muslims want to live in this country they have the same rights as the rest of us...and are not immune or given special treatment when it comes to being offended. Don't want to be offended by something someone says or does....don't come to this country. Heck there is a debate tonight. I am sure by the time it is over both candidates will have offended my delicate sensibilities at least once....LOL. But I will get over it and survive somehow....LOL.

LOL. I am sure they will both offend you at least once and I know they will both offend me at least once, but like you I will get over it. I agree if they live in this country then they have the same rights as everyone else. Though, I don't think going to another country would help. People can be offended by anything. Heck for some reason you could be offended by me saying people get offended.

Religion is suppose to improve the acts of mankind. It is suppose to reveal a better way for man to live. In fact all religious systems have what we here in America call the Golden Rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. NOT SO WITH ISLAM. Islam says to those who follow it, All will submit, and if they don't you must kill them.
