I respect religion of all sorts. however the muslims in my appartment yell in my face when I try to get on an elevator with them. i allowed this mistreatment for a while and then realized I pay rent just as they do. They give me dirty looks now and tell me I am ignorant, but I am not a second class citizen and do not deserve that. I think of it this way..my husband is allergic to perfume, if someone got on the elevator with him he can't say get off the elevator-he is the one with the problem so he should be the one to get off, and same with muslims, u dont like the dog fine, then get off and take the stairs. my dog is 15 and has arthritis, I cant take him on the stairs without injuring him. im sorry, i do respect religion but i need respect too..
