Stupidity is a bad thing

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Send the Muslims Home

Submitted by Mims (Denmark), Mar 21, 2008 at 16:50

Muslims do not expect the constitution to suit the religion of Islam, but they expect to be respected and have every reason to do so. One can't judge a book by it's cover.

Immigrants have their own reasons for leaving their countries and it is not for everyone else to decide if that is reason enough, but mostly it's due to war, and thats understable because who could endure to live a whole lifetime being afraid and not knowing if you would open your eyes the next day.

But i have noticed that muslims have become scapegoats in almost all western countries. EVERYTIME something happens and there is a muslim involved you hear about on the news and read about it in the paper. The media is trying to demonize all muslims.

Everybody expects to be treated with respect, even if they are "different". Do you want people to treat you differently because you are stupid? Do you want people to keep reminding you that you are stupid? Of course not. You want people to respect and treat you like a human being.
