Edward, thank you for your feedback. I do not begrudge Muslims their liberties in America. Except, the wearing of that black bag-like garment where weapons can be hidden and men can hide as women.

What I object to strenuously is any activity that violates the US Constitution and laws. For that is the umbrella under which we all live in freedom and liberty. Freedom is not absolute, it comes with restrictions. Muslims should be made aware of what those restrictions are so they can decide whether or not they can adhere to them. And if they can't, they should not come to America.
