Sound off for Jan. 13, 2013
Last week, the Daily Republic published an article about a proposed Islamic school in American Canyon.
Following are some comments on the article:
- I’d agree that people should be able to be open and proud of their heritage – even more so in a society made up of people of different backgrounds. It is a healthy thing to be able to share. Hopefully that sharing and pride is not at the exclusion of all other heritages. No one heritage is better than others and learning about others backgrounds can be beneficial in a number of ways.
- When 1 percent of your population is Muslim, there are few problems. When 5 percent of your population is Muslim, the protests and lawsuits start. When your population is 10 percent Muslim, people will be attacked in public. When your population is 20 percent Muslim, the terror begins and you need only look at Europe and France to see that fact for yourselves.
- It’s up to us to stay true to the American secular government and help that “reform” along for Muslims who choose to live here. Our best course is not to insist America is a “Christian country,” but is, rather, to insist everyone here respect the choices the Founders made to ensure we have a secular country.
- Start them young. All religions, including Christian-based, are cults that want new followers.
