A partial ban!

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?

Those who promote and or practice the violent brand of any philosophy (for argument sake religions as well) should be banned. There should NO freedom of "expression" for promotion of or practice of violence wether verbal or physical.

Speeches and writings promoting, condoning, teaching violence should be considered seditious and a violation of the rights of others. No amount of reasoning can support sub-animal behavior!

Sharia must ABSOLUTELY respect every and all aspects of the American Constitution or be banned. If Judaism and Christianity through the use of reason can coexist with the Constitution so should the Sharia. If the Muslims (Koran) deny to human their ability to reason, then they have no place in western civil societies and should be placed in quarantine. Certains aspects of the Koran do not enhance the Muslim' s faith and its revisions is long overdue!

A fundamental difference between animals and humans is the ability for humans to reason. What humans do with this tool is another issue!
