MrFuscle saidThis is what happens when you justify painting with a broad brush. You would think gay men would know this all too well but the forums prove otherwise.
Seems like your painting with a broad brush. Who in this forum has attacked a sikh.
If you read the article you would see that Sikhs are being confused with Muslims which is why they are being attacked. There are many in the forums who do not want any more Muslims entering the US and see Islam as a religion of hate. When you paint with such a broad brush, as Donald trump is doing, you will inevitably have idiots who lash out at people who simple look like the people you are calling a threat. Since so many gay people hate being painted with the brush of femininity which doesn't belong to them you would think these same gay men would not condemn all of Islam by considering it a religion of hate when only a small minority of Muslims commit violent crimes in the name of Islam.
Your making a few assumptions mostly out of your own bias.
Most here i think know the difference between Islam and Sikh. Your just voicing your opinion which you can, but its baseless.
Islam has a huge PR problem, and only Islam can fix it. There are numerous polls that span the globe the paint followers of Islam as very violent and ideological. With significan numbers in the millions that would feel suicide bombers as justified. Scary that millions of muslims feel suicide bombers are justified. http://www.pewglobal.org/2014/07/01/concerns-about-islamic-extremism-on-the-rise-in-middle-east/pg-2014-07-01-islamic-extremism-11/
I think it very odd that you would defend a religion that in its current form feels justified to throw you off a building for being gay.
The constitution isnt a suicide pact. Islam is a religion but as a whole may not be compatible with western ideals. True there are individual muslims that are compatible.
Study the Ottoman empire. Ancestors of mine were actually slaves to the Ottoman turks. First born boys sent to Egypt to be converted to islam an work in slave camps.
By the way I dont think its practical or wise to limit entry into this country based on religion. Something people can denounce under there breath very easily. Its a stupid idea.
We can and we do restrict entry based on national origin. Remember the earthquake in haiti? very few received asylum
and actually there was a state dept campaign for people to "stay".
