    We are seeing restriction on a free and open society even in the US from islamists.

    Lol...another poll from the guy who is so politically blind that he only sees America as either left or right-leaning. There is no middle in his little world.

    And he is asking about what a free society is.

    Then we make it less free by our example.

    Keep in mind that one can only submit to a liberal government insofar as it is behaving in an illiberal way (demanding people do things).

    Also note that no where does the Bible instruct us to agree with our government.

    No we submit by consent not by demands

    Christians do not submit only when they consent to the authority's existence.

    Cherry picked examples of Muslims behaving poorly is rock-solid evidence that all Muslims are bad people.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    We consent to the laws via electing representatives.... not sure of your point. Christians submit to that system while shaping that system with electoral activism
