Why are we so scared to call a spade a spade when we are so easily referred to as infidels? Why are we so scared to say no, when it is insisted upon that we change even our religious institutions and allow burkas and prayerrooms? Why are we so very afraid of shunning what is distinctively dark and evil ? Why are we not resisting more? Why say "I accept every religion"? Someone who faces hell and turns his bottom to heaven is not worshiping The God of the Bible... Someone who doesn't lift his face up to the heaven's once, when he prays, but would rather face a stone, is not worshipping what Jews worship... Someone who greets an evil angel on his shoulder is not worshipping the God of the Christians. Not every religion is good, yes, some are seriously warped, but then it depends on an individuals principles... doesn't it? Is it your principle to accept that women are to be abused in the way that they are? Is it your principle to know that when full sharia is practiced we end up with a Taliban government that Muslims themselves cannot live with? Is it the kind of compromising we make to accept this hardline attitude that we are evil, no matter what our make-up, and all Muslims are good? For that is what their religion teaches them. In all honesty, I do not hate any Muslim, I just don't believe that the ones I know are foolish enough to belong to this religion.
