I can almost agree...

Reader comment on item: Spreading Islam in American Public Schools
in response to reader comment: School of Islam

Submitted by C Dailey (United States), Jun 4, 2006 at 00:11

It was said democracy has a double standard, in some ways I can agree with this. Voters can be forced to vote differently, turning it into what it wasn't intended to be.

You say that homosexuality is spread in schools when religion is not, I can agree that both should or shouldn't be taught is school (not a scattering among either).

I also agree with your point that Islam is older than democracy, but I in no way agree with your idea that because of that Islam should be supreme, as it seems you point out. If legitimacy was a measurement of age, then Christianity would outrank Islam, for Islam shot from it. You move farther back, Judaism outranks both! If legitimacy and supremacy were a measurement of age, then we should all be circumsised jews, not muslims OR christians OR hindus or anything else. Supremacy and legitimacy CANNOT be a matter of age.
