It is funny that in all your claims that I do not know you, you claim to know me. Did I ever say I was a Muslim? No, I am a Christian, born and raised, and my family has lived in this country for two centuries. And yet still, I think it is okay that public school provide materials on Islam to those who wish to learn more about that FAITH. I am not threatened, or at least no more than by the Christians who force their faith on others in public schools--and this happens quite a lot, as I am sure you know. So many Christians feel it is imperative to witness to others to save their souls.

I do not support terrorism, I simply support this nation's concept of freedom of religion and seperation of church and state, and i am glad to see that you do as well. I do not understand terrorism or suicide bombers. And yet, you say that you are so angry that if it were not the Love of Jesus you would turn to violence. This tells me you, at your very core, do understand this passion. So at least you can see why we need moderation in our dialogue and patience in our approach.
