    We already have that, It's called the U.S. Constitution.

    Which includes the 1st Amendment,by the way.

    That's because I know it's a sham, the constitution is a weak document, and we don't actually live in a democratic or a free society.


    Wow.

    That's a mouthful.

    Christianity is arguably much stronger and influential in the US than in many countries who officially have a Christian state Church.

    I don't think the United States as a centralized government is making any official statements towards Islam that says it can not teach something, no matter how bat **** crazy it may be.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    Take a close look at the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    This was a good post, though the poll could of used an other because that's how I feel. Understand that if Islam were keeping to itself in the Middle East (talking about that vein of it right now), then there wouldn't be an issue. I'm sure there are plenty of objections to be made of all religions, the difference is that their not threatening out way of life.

    That's fine for American Citizens but I think there is a bigger issue at play here. Mainly the fact that this religion is encroaching on Western Society and not integrating well, shall we say.

    Even if Islam was not in the U.S. we have no business targeting a religion on ideological grounds. If we do it anywhere then that sets the precedent to do it here. What we can focus on is behavior. When individuals or a group start teaching and encouraging others to attack us, then they have crossed the line.
