If we give in , we will have continue to give more and more. It is like dealing with a bully or an extortionist. They will take and take, until we grow a spine and say no. It is the only thing they understand. It will be tough, and people will call us racist and say we are the intolerant ones. Personally I don't care what faith someone is, it is only when they try to hurt us or demand that we change, then there is a problem.
