    Extreme views about the separation of church and state do not reflect what the Supreme Court has interpreted the Establishment Clause to require. As the Court has discussed, an overly rigid view of that separation not only threatens to violate the right to free exercise, but often seems to be the product of bitter animosity toward religion. I've noticed that the so-called "liberals"--and they are anything but--who don't like the freedoms of speech and religion guaranteed by the First Amendment often don't like the Second Amendment any better.

    I totally agree. This whole planet needs a lot of education like that.

    It's not an impossible task; but it's going to take a lot of work.

    One can rise above circumstances or allow themselves to be swallowed by the ever present quicksands of life. If one chooses to not rise above such they choose to wallow in self righteous, rage inducing, personally destructive indignation; all to no positive avail. One should not let others' opinions become his own reality. Choose not to become a victim. It would be a sad state to pass on to offspring.

    These ads are not constructive, they do not add anything, but hold the world's largest religion responsible for the actions of fanatics.
    The world's largest religion is Christianity, not Islam. Secondly, not even Westboro (as disgusting as it is) is chopping off heads.

    I understand racism and bigotry is part of life for many people. Some people handle it better than others, but I have also seen it change people.

Out of the garrison of 20,000-plus men on Iwo Jima, for example, only about one per cent survived to surrender. And suicide was a given in kamikaze attacks. But it's interesting to note that even there, there was only a surge of volunteer kamikaze pilots for a while. In the later stages, it got more and more necessary to dragoon people into that duty.
    Yes, it also wasn't a very effective program either.

    You just said "The racism towards all Muslims". Maybe you should think this through. Islam by country - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
