  2. Islam is the polar opposite of Christianity. The enemy of a liberal’s enemy is their friend. Thus, Islam is a liberal’s friend.

  3. I don´t understand the context of the question, what rights are under fire? The right to follow religion?

    • Christians are put down on a daily basis, coaches are no longer allowed to pray with their teams, soldiers are getting in trouble for praying, no longer allowed to say Merry Christmas in the VA hospital, to many things to mention really!

      • No longer able to say Merry Christmas in the VA? I did not know that. My son learned about Hanukkah and St. Nicholas both in school today. I suppose we are still traditional here. No wonder I did not notice!

    • Also Liberals say it is wrong to think of Muslims a certain way because they are Muslim but they judge Christians every day

      • Yes, no belief or practice is immune to criticism. Everything should be questioned, and no immunities should be granted for culture or religion. If people are being oppressed in the name of either, how could there be any help or change if we excused it for any reason? I think inclusion is better than exclusion. Exclusion sends the message that something is unacceptable.

  4. Do you have an example of what you mean by people defending a Muslim’s religious rights?

  5. At the core, Islam, Christianity, and Judaism are so similar, that they used to pay each other no mind. Muslims referred to Jews and Christians as “People of the book” and there was no animosity or violence among the faiths. Only after the crusades did things come apart. Over the centuries the religions drifted apart, but only in the practicing of the core values that they all still hold in common. The Islamic five pillars of faith is not so very different from the Christian ten commandments. However, just as the Christian faith splintered into different churches, so too did the Islamic faith. Some interpretations of Islam began to include an unwritten ‘sixth’ pillar of faith- ‘Jihad.’ Which literally translates to “Struggle in the service of God.” Some interpret that as doing the best they can to serve God by being good, just, kind, and spiritual, while others interpret it as a struggle to convert those who do not share the faith. It is THIS splinter faction of Islam that has become problematic over time. It is reckless and erroneous to assume that all practitioners of Islam would convert non-believers, or would do harm to any who do not share their faith.
    That being said, the current political climate of the U.S. is one which is trying like hell to appease everyone. The protection of civil rights includes the protection of religious rights, something Christians have enjoyed since the creation of the country. With more focus on the Islamic culture this day and age, sensitivity towards the religious freedoms of non-Christians has become much more visible. I don’t believe that there is any intentional attempt to stem or revoke the religious freedoms of Christians this day and age, but I do believe it might look that way when so much consideration is being paid to ‘others.’ -If we start to talk about the forcing of Christian organizations to pay for health care which could include abortions and such, I chalk this up to growing pains of a health care system which has its flaws. I don’t really think that there is a blatant attempt to protect or shelter Islamic practitioners while assaulting Christian believers. I just think we’re all nervous and jerky about ‘them’ since the limelight is constantly on the ones who do not represent the entirety of their faith. As a result, we tend to lump them all together, and see the protection of their rights as protecting the people who would do harm or would see the downfall of Christianity.
