    I think it also represents an issue that many ignore, and that is the degree to which Islam micromanages people's lives and emphasizes conformity.

    No more irritating than church bells going off every hour during the day.

    Most if not all religions based on Judaism are much the same. It is no worse than Seven Day Adventist, Mormons or Southern Baptists as far as that goes.

    That doesn't happen where I live in the US.

    Christian churches ring their bells very briefly only on Sunday morning. The Catholic church only on Sunday morning to announce the High Mass.

    I don't think all Abrahamic religions are the same at all.

    Weren't you the one just detailing some of those differences?

    That's true. It is more common in the Bible belt. Here in Florida, where I live I don't here them at all.

    5 times a day in the heart of NY, probably would get old fast.

    I did not say that. I ment in the controlling of life aspect or micromanagement. This is what you said; "the degree to which Islam micromanages people's lives and emphasizes conformity." I was responding directly to that. For example...

    Catholics with no birth control.
    Baptists with smoking, drinking and gambling etc.
    Seven Day Adventists all of the above like Baptists plus hair style, dress, diet etc.
    All include no pornography, premarital sex, adultery etc.

    They are not the same in all respects, and I did not make such an outlandish claim. Sorry for the confusion.

    I am sorry, I am the one who started that. As I explained I just used your post as a jumping off point for my own views which were not really affected by your own. Unfortunately people took it the wrong way.

    I agree it is not the best idea. My point originally was even if it's not (and I agree) it is their right.

    That is how the confusion started.

    Again sorry about that.

    Re: Mosque near WTC moves forward

    In my town in Texas the Catholic church bells ring everyday at noon and twice on sunday. It Reminds me of a verse of a Johnny Cash song sometimes when I here it. Gets me all choked up.

    In the park I saw a daddy
    With a laughing little girl that he was swinging.
    And I stopped beside a Sunday school
    And listened to the songs they were singing.
    Then I headed down the street,
    And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing,
    And it echoed through the canyon
    Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday
