Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: Putting Moderate Muslim in his place - AGAIN!

Submitted by moderate Muslim 1 (United States), May 9, 2007 at 21:54

... I have no problem with the constitution. Explain where it contradicts with Islam. (Hint: its not church and state by the way)

It really doesnt

So point out the place where it does conflict with Islam.

I, a Muslim, active within the Muslim community, have yet to meet a Muslim who is an extremist, who follows bin Laden or any of those people, or who is anyway a hazard to Americans. Most American Muslims assimilate, meaning they live normal lives. Of course they dont drink or go to casinos, but that is their right. A Muslim is not automatically against assimilation if they cover their head.

You lack the first hand knowledge needed to understand the issue.
