Should the USA try to keep Muslims out of their country?
Any and all people who can immigrate legally should be welcomed. In fact, they should be encouraged. We need an infusion of productive people with a drive to "make good" to fuel our economy. No capitalistic nation can survive, much less thrive, without this type of "adrenaline shot". I'd go so far as to advocate replacing the institutionalized welfare slackers with these qualified, legal immigrants.
Bring in the ones with the drive & ambition!
Ship the slackers to the "SandBox"!
Muslims, no. Islam yes. Christianity, yes. Judiasm, yes. Hinduism, yes. I was once a devout Muslim who just like a devout Christian, Jew or whatever else, like all religions denied all the shit of religion and now I fight to destroy Islam. If I can change a lot of other people can, by denying them entry only fuels radicalism more by proving to them people are the enemy, not ideology which is incorrect.
Nah.... Quit the bigotry.... christians and ex christians still brainwashed by their faith, loove to portray their former beliefs as this benign gentle loving religion.... TRUTH IS most of your crazed alt-right wingers and alt right killers are christians.... not to mention to this day in modern society, christian terrorists are a real thing.... American should keep all religious immigrants, particularily Abrahamic religious people out.... not just muslims. There are way more similarities amongst the stupid trio of Judaism, christianity and islam than there are differences.
Just now joining this discussion. I think it is important to separate humans themselves from their ideas. I vote no. By allowing someone who identifies as Muslim into the US we are allowing a human being with consciousness and an ability to grow and change into the US. Any of us who have changed and evolved with time should be intimately familiar with how exposure to new stimuli and exposure to new individuals with differing beliefs can change how we view our beliefs. Important that we don't forget that.
I think that every time a Muslim shooting occurs (like the recent one at the Florida naval base) the USA should drop the number of Muslims allowed into this country annually by 50,000. Islam is in general "the mother-load of bad ideas" to quote Sam Harris.
If we could figure out a way to separate bad Muslims from good ones that would be great.
Is Sharia Law illegal in this country? I think its only if local judges have said so at their location. I guess there is nothing in the US Constitution that forbids Sharia law. Separation of church and state.Muslims take advantage of this to promote their jihad agenda. I am talking about peaceful jihad.
Well, if we add the "maybe" to the "YES", then we get a result of 59-19 against keeping Muslims out. That's basically a 3-1 ratio. I would like to that all the participants for their comments. I think the discussion has been enlightening, at least for me anyway.The poll question was good, I think, but maybe could have been worded better. I think Agnostics seem to be mostly liberal minded, other polls have indicated that. Take care and thanks again.
