Reader comment on item: No Islamic Law in Minnesota, for Now
in response to reader comment: Only when I hear church bells ringing in Saudi Arabia........

I think what you are forgetting is that Saudi Arabia is not a democracy. Had they been a democracy, they would have allowed church bells in there. We here in the US have to do since freedom of religion is granted in our constitution. So in that sense, there's no hypocrisy.

Just like we can't sell beer after midnight at 7-11, we got to respect what they believe. I don't agree with them about this law proposal but we should and we must respect each other believes and that's what makes us a beautiful nation.
