When in Rome, you do what the Romans do.

Reader comment on item: How Many U.S. Muslims?

Submitted by frank carter (Mexico), Feb 28, 2008 at 14:15

The Muslin and the Islamic religious extremisms are affecting many countries like France and England. Like a spreading cancer is also transmitting into our country. This people are some what special nothing like Catholics & protestants who believed in the teachings of Christ, we don't die and kill others for Ali, they have a certain way of believing that we don't understand, and don't care to.

When we visit their country my wife covers her head and face when the custom applies, and we obey their laws. They have nothing there to encourage us to live there, we also believe their way of life for us would be suicidal, and we don't care to change their Biblical ways. We have enough Arabs in the USA to instruct their brothers back home the value of Democracy.

My advice to them if you are coming here in large numbers to build a small empire of Babylon you might run into some difficulties, America believes in freedom of religion, we are patient but not stupid...Remember you are in Rome and not in the desert, and so do what the Romans do when you are away from home.
