When in Rome do as the Romans do, surely you understand this very simple philosphy !!! In other words, you can practice your religion only and if it don't interfere with a persons ability to commute in their native land...As far as a blind person goes, to ask them to leave their seeing eye dog outside is a ridiculous. Here is one good reason why it's ridiculous. If a blind person had to leave his/her dog outside while they entered a muslim owned store and got hurt, the store owner could be sued ....

The United States is a place of many religions and cultures, The muslim community it seems wants to change our laws and our rules, and cater too theirs.... For instance when I go to Japan, I am asked to take my shoes off before entering one's home, this I do, I don't argue with my guests in their own home... The muslims are trying to change our way of life and we don't like it .....The muslim community is driving a huge wedge between them and the rest of the American people !! If this behavior continues the outcome will be very, very, nasty.... Back to the seeing eye dogs, most if not all dogs are cleaner than most people.....in fact dog saliva kills germs, check it out, as a matter of fact I think I would rather kiss a dog then some of the people I met in my life....

Submitting....
