A Crucial Distinction

Reader comment on item: Which Privileges for Islam?

Submitted by Robert Arsenault (United States), Mar 17, 2005 at 13:26

Many subgroups in America aspire to futher their causes through obtaining special priviliges under the guise of equal rights. The line between the failure to accommodate special requests & the violation of rights is a thin one, but Muslims in North America press the issue by making the case that failing to allow them to circumvent existing laws & regulations is an infringement on their right to practice their religion.

It is now that Americans, elected officials & private citizens alike, must state clearly that Muslims' rights to practice their religion ends where our Constitution begins.
