Yes, ban it.

Reader comment on item: Arabs Disavow Hizbullah
in response to reader comment: Ban Islam?

Submitted by K T (Singapore), Aug 4, 2006 at 00:09

The US Constitution was drafted at a time when it was thought that all religions are basically good in essence, in the sense that they all teach the Golden Rule. We've learned a few things since then, one of them being that Islam doesnt fit this picture of religion.

So if banning Islam amounts to contradicting the US Constitution, then I suggest we rewrite the US Constitution so it reads: 'You can believe what you want so long as your religion doesn't prescribe hostility towards other religions.'
