Reader comment on item: Which Privileges for Islam?

Submitted by Alb (United States), Jul 12, 2006 at 04:16

I agree that all denominations should be treated the same. But each denomination has it's own special needs, constrains, and demands. I think if the demands and constrains do not obstruct the law, why not allow it! In some cases, you will need more population present to justify certain demands, and that is ok too.

As for Jews and Hindus, the vast majority hates Muslims so much, it is a very bad idea for them to set as juries unless the trust factor is built again. Additionally, female Muslims do not like to play and laugh around males in the pool, why not allow some pools to open on some days for female only and others for male only! I miss the school days when males acted as males without worrying about females around. Do not take me wrong, I like females, but sometimes I like to be in male only activities, and that is ok too! As far as the Muslim demands goes, all I can say is the American law is already built to support a lot of Christianity and Judaism needs and constrains already. Just because Muslims demand some rights, we should not be all threatened. Just count the religious blessings that a Christian and Jew can exercise in the USA, and you will see Muslims do not even get much to compare. Let's face it, with Muslim countries so poor due to interference in political systems and instability, many Muslims will migrate to the West, and the West need to come to term and either respect Muslims in the Muslim land and help them succeed, or Respect them in the West and help them succeed there. Sorry, but bad international policies always have both short term and long term consequences.
