    Lol. I even tried to explain it in the simplest of terms, but yet, you dont understand. I'm glad you don't work for TSA.

    nothing wrong with your explanation or his understanding, his statement is still 100% true.

    You could argue whether the discrimination is needed, sound, logical, justified etc but the fact remains its discrimination

    No. I think it is idiotic to factor a person's religious beliefs into your decision to vote for them. That includes the lack thereof. What you should be looking at is what they are going to do as president and how are they going to fix issues facing our nation. To vote for someone because of their religion is a silly as voting for them because of a letter in front of their name, their skin color, what state they are from or other things that ultimately won't matter in office.
    I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I'm a human being, first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.
