    Only if you equate religion with being an $#@!. Plenty of non-religious $#@!s out there.
    "A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity."
    - Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), American social activist and First Lady of the United States

    I just wish Western activists would look at things like this and keep things in perspective. There are some people pushing this "Islamophobic" narrative, when in reality, Muslims are treated better here than in a lot of the rest of the world.

    Meanwhile, China has been doing something similar. Is this a red flag of human rights violations to come? Is it just growing pangs in a global society?

    Islam must be destroyed. It appeals to evolutionary failures. If the unfittest have any power at all, it drains out of us. Those who want to level us to a pathetic and fatalistic weakness invented malignant multiculturalism. India and China want to advance, which threatens the One-World Order.

    There is at least one town in the U.S. with a Muslim majority - Hamtramck, Michigan - and there may well be more in the future. One of the most Jewish towns in America - more than 41% - Teaneck, N.J., has a Muslim mayor (and, weirdly, a ban on Sunday shopping). The same Constitutional provisions and other laws regarding religion that protect Muslims, Jews and other religious minorities in this country protect Christians where the influence and pervasiveness of some other Faith is great or even dominant. Laws and policies that ostensibly provide "security" to the majority establish a precedent that may be used against you when you aren't the majority any longer.

    Islamophobic? Not at all. I simply have a problem with anyone that violates humans and women as the Islam do. Its an interesting and very ironic lib contradiction to preach human and womens rights then support what is in this video.
    "But we dont support this type of thing"..yes you do, by extension it has your stamp of approval. A fair analogy would be someone's inviting Charlie Manson to spend the weekend with you. Almost. Mansons a Sunday school teacher compared to the barbaric
    Islamists.

    I feel zero obligation to embrace these animals. If I were so inclined it would have to be for a reason much greater than a conformist need to belong by being pc. What happens to the lady in the video is a good /bad /lucky event for her. Shes lucky they didnt chop her head off

    You are not a Christian. You don't understand us. I get upset when so called Christian think they talk for Judiasm, don't ever talk for us.
