Too many lies

Reader comment on item: 'Become a Muslim warrior'

This is very disturbing to me on numerous levels.

First, since when do public schools teach ANY religion so "in depth?" That's sad enough.

Second, and perhaps more important, I am so sick of the blatant lies that many Muslims keep pushing on America.

It's sad enough they believe their own garbage. How can any Muslim say with a straight face that Islam sees women as equal to men? Their own Koran says it takes two women to equal one man's testimony; women cannot be witnesses who sign a couple's marriage contract, so on and on and on. The inequity between Muslims' proclamations and the norms and mores in their own societies, cultures and homes defy their very statements. Then they go and blame "local customs." How is it that all these terrible customs have thrived and survived in spite of Islam's supposedly clear message? These societies have been Muslim for hundreds of years; it is a religion that is not just practiced on Sundays and a couple of other days a year. How is it then that this religion has not overturned "local customs" that are barbaric, degrading, dangerous and disgusting?

We as Americans need to take action NOW to preserve what we have left of our great and wonderful nation. In the spirit of diversity, we have let our beautiful, rich and open-hearted culture be eaten away from the edges on in. This group of liars called CAIR (known to me as "Coersion on America of Islamic Rituals") is just one example of lie-spreaders that pretend to love America and all that for which we stand. Under this cover, they are seeding little pockets of hate, intolerance, and other Islamic attributes within our schools and our communities.
