All-American Muslims vs. All-American Bigots

Some families from the show All-American Muslims were on the Anderson today. It was 2 families from the show vs. this lady that believes that Islam will destroy the country! *insert mock horror.*

The show had me yelling at my television.

Let me give you some background. I HATE to characterize an entire religion on the stupidity of a few. I also will lose respect for someone if they are incredibly close-minded, especially about religion. I have someone that I can no longer respect because she proclaimed to me: "I've lived in Muslim countries. The whole being a religion of peace is crap. All they want is to kill Americans."

People say that Islam wants to convert the Infadel. Did we forget the Crusades and the Inquisition? Christianity did that too?

And for all of those people that say that all Islamic people want Shiira Law. Um.... We're more likely to live under Christian law first... especially if most of the Republicans win the 2012 race.

So.... to sum up: ALL religions have their idiots that read WAY too much into an ancient text. Let's not base our reactions on the actions of a few.
