Swearing on the Qur'an

Reader comment on item: Time to Profile Airline Passengers?

I probably wouldn't be thrilled with the feeling a Muslim must have when people look at you funny and all. But you can't dictate what people are allowed to think. We're profiled every day with obnoxious advertising on our computers. There are disciminatory insurance rates. There's unfair treatment of people everywhere, for whatever reason -- social status, gender, vocabulary, body type, age, profession, and on and on.

What's at issue here is far more important than some hurt feelings. It's national security and it's also something that I find insulting to the max -- it's stomping on the best traditions of the U.S. People whose comrades are acting like maniac demons have the utter nerve to come and criticize our country and declare they need to "fix" it to "really fulfill the rights in the Constitution."

Yeah -- like one case an ACLU lawyer fought for -- the right to swear on the Qur'an rather than the Bible in court.

Muslim expansionism may eventually take over the U.S. But it's still possible to stop them. The political correctness is more serious than it may seem. It's a major stumbling block for us. We have to get over it.
