    What about having this Muslim terrorist being tied to Americans? Isn't that a slam against the American people?

    We should keep in mind that the religion is a choice whereas those born in a particular country have no choice. Ergo, tying this Islamic screwball is an insult to Americans. Who really cares if its an insult to Muslims? They should grow up and not be treated like children.
    Fair point. However, keep in mind that he chose to be an American, too.

    Just what I would expect from a Liberal . .

    You said it dude, not me. I was asking for clarification.

    (PS... I know damned well it was a typo on your part... I was trying to lighten things with a little.. apparently very little.. levity).

    Sure, but I said those born in the country.

    If it was up to me I'd disallow Muslim immigration immediately.

    Well thankfully it isn't up to you. Disallowing an entire religion to immigrate to the U.S. because of a small number of people isn't something I would want my country to do.

    Why not what? Why I don't want my country disallowing people of a certain religion? I don't buy into the whole just because moderate Muslims don't denounce terrorism means they support it. My roommate is Muslim and I never once question him. He is as American as I am. And pretty much every Muslim I have met has been the same way.

    So you're willing to risk the lives of innocent Americans because your Muslim roommate isn't, as far as you know, a terrorist?

    I'm against it because one Muslim terrorist is too many. Why take the chance? They can live elsewhere quite easily, and have done for centuries.

    And even more have lived here peacefully. You are trying to evict an entire religion based off of a few.

    I never mentioned anything about "evicting" Muslims. I said no more should be let into the country.

    Why should any Muslims be allowed in? Do you have a good reason?
