We must not allow the horror of 9/11/2001 to change who we are.
Make no mistake - we're not about to excuse any of those involved with any attacks against civilians here in the United States, or anywhere else.
However, that for the past decade or so such attacks have been made by those whose common denominator appears to be membership in a perverted version of Islam should not mandate unbridled fear and loathing of all Muslims.
Such behavior amounts to the second guessing of the nations Founders and is therefore literally un-American.
Consider this, the overwhelming majority of Nazi's were Lutherans, that being the dominant denomination in Germany. Yet (thankfully) no one's ever referred to "Lutheran Terrorists."
George Washington and the boys would not approve.
First Amendment as written:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
First Amendment as interpreted by bigots:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, except for Islam which shall be banned; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The above begs the question, "How should a Christian treat those of other or no belief?"
The answer is obvious.
Like a Christian.
Substitute "American" for "Christian" and the answer's largely the same; like a fellow American.
No good ever comes from treating others poorly, unless of course they've committed some treasonous act such as purchasing a new Toyota or something as there is no Constitutional protection regarding automobiles.
