Oh, how ridiculous.

Reader comment on item: A Madrassah in Bridgeview, Illinois
in response to reader comment: What we want Muslims to do in America

You are sitting upon a high throne of pretense. You claim to not be racist, though you make no mention to not being a bigot and entirely predjudiced. Is there a difference? Only technically. Both terms define the attitudes of euthanistic 1920's America, The National Socialist Party and their genocidal crimes against the Jewish people, and the Ku Klux Klan, still prevelent through out very nation. As a caucasian, atheist, 17 year old, female resident of Bridgeview, Illinois, I am completely repulsed ... You are a journalist, if that, but you do not live among those in the Madrassah. I do, and have found none of your assumptions to be true.

My generation will soon surpass yours...and religious freedoms (along with others) will be tolerated among every group, for everyone.

Go read your Constitution. The First Amendment, the Establishment Clause. Not only seperates the Church form the State, but seperates the State from the Church. Any religion has the right to practice any which way they please, without the interuption and corruption of the Government....
