    Last Sunday, by natives who dislike everything da'white ma'an brought to "their" land.

    Pretty silent, actually, as long as their song met the same noise ordinance as the churches, public bands everything else.

    It's true, I, as a Christian, am not a victim...I am the one who knocks.

    Let's take the word "you" out of my quote and replace it with the "Christians in the area". Do you think Christians would stay silent about an amplified Muslim call the prayer at the same volume as church bells?

    I think it's more likely that we would be faced with Fox News doing thorough exlusive reporting about how Christians in that community are all under Muslim attack in that neighborhood with loads of locals expressing their outrage... all while Fox is complaining about how atrocious it is that no other news organization is giving it the same amount of coverage.

    You're changing the question. You asked "how silent" and I said "pretty silent". Every group has members who will speak out, Christians included. A few will object, a few will file complaints, but the main body of Christians in my State wouldn't. Most of us are going to preach tolerance and make friends with our Muslim neighbors.

    I don't even own a TV, so I'm not "faced" with any such thing.

    Agreed. However, my point is that those who whine about being a victim are the first to cast stones when the tables are turned.

    I'd like to see a test case scenario.

    If she's jewish and sees a photo of Hitler in her history textbook, she can ask the university to remove all these books from campus. Thank you.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd be pissed too. Just as I was pissed in Phoenix when the street behind my house had a house converted to a small church where the asshole would go out and put his amplifier system in the yard and start screaming hellfire and brimestone in Spanish.

    Religion isn't under attack. Religion is generally the attacker.
