"With its intent to make the Koran the "highest authority in America" (instead of the Constitution), CAIR advocates the overthrow of the Government of the United States. Surely this should be reason enough to take legal action and shut down this subversive agency of a foreign ideology. Whether there is the stomach for such an action is another matter."

Come on, Leslie, let's not be childish. Any Christian priest will tell you that their ideal world is one where all praise Jesus and accept him as their Lord. But does that mean priests should be booted out of the United States? Nope. Why? Because they intend to propogate Jesus's message through word of mouth. Same principal with Muslims. I don't see people being "converted by the sword" as white America like to put it.
