Where Islam goes trouble soon follows

Reader comment on item: Islam Drives the Social and Legal Agenda in the West
in response to reader comment: Islam did not come up with something new or odd.

Islam has made a habit of chafing where ever it has gone. Muslim women wear their uniform to show penetration into the victim society and to mark themselves as separate. The more they are seen in public, the more emboldened their men feel to demand and complain. The big show they make of demanding a place to pray in and even in public is for no reason other reason than to demonstrate that they are there. In non-Islamic society people in general go about observing their superstitions quietly without demands to be recognized as special or different. Islam has nothing new, or of value to offer to a post-enlightement world, where the products of reason are seen in invention and discourse. The only thing that Islam brings with it are a rejection of the one gift that humans have, which sets us apart from the other animals. That is the mind. By needing to look in ancient writings, and follow the interpretations of ignorant imams, Muslims do not learn critical or analytical thinking. What we feel sad about is that people would voluntarily give up the gift of mind, and demand that we should also.
