What if your neighbor's religion is justifying many of them to commit crimes against humanity? Even encouraging it? Would you be worried to send your daughter outside? If they believe the infidel is someone who won't accept their religion and they follow a prophet who believes in beheading the infidel, doesn't that make you a bit nervous? Of course, not all of them take this path, but if you watch the news, you can see MANY do and many commit these atrocities day in and day out. I know Islam is supposed to be a peaceful religion, but I don't see how come we're ALL having to deal with the evil that's coming from it.

To us, we may think bringing religion into a political discussion is wrong or not practical, but the separation of church and state isn't practiced everywhere and when the world is suffering due to their religious beliefs being applied to their political beliefs, it's an issue to me.
