    Bill Maher bashes all religions and is one of the only on the left who will explain situations like you posted.

    Conservative religious people often present problems in modern society. Some Muslims who are more liberal wish to assimilate. Some others don’t. In any case, reasonable religious accommodations are made for various religious groups and we’ve been doing so for a long time. Muslims are a more recent group seeking religious accommodation. I gather that your point is to criticize people for trying to accommodate some of the more conservative Muslim viewpoints but, considering our history, it is a rather weak point.

    No but you are dumb enough to believe all Muslims are the same , hating & Terrorist 😉 ! I don’t hate Muslims … but due to the actions of many Muslims I don’t TRUST Muslims ! People don’t like it when others generalize & BS about all Christians or other religions … when there’s a FEW NUTS / Terrorists among them either … even tho there are some 😉 ! I don’t much care for any religion or religious people … but I don’t generalize about all of them because of some who are nuts & terrorist either !

    Oh no! They don’t want people to assimilate. Assimilating is the “melting pot” idea and to liberals, that’s evil. No, they prefer the “tossed salad” idea in which people don’t have to assimilate. (Yes, I’ve actually been “educated” in this more than once.)

  5. the night of the zombie g says:

    I think that few people who practice religion desire to assimilate… but it does happen… more slowly for the more extreme… and there will always be a lot of pain and trouble in the first few years… what is your answer to the Muslim issue? lock them away in the middle east, build a huge wall, and hope they become peaceful on their own? we have to get them, as borat might say, watching sexy-time american tv, and wearing the blue jeans and trying the jack of Daniels… that’s how we beat the soviets… lol

  6. Pie-O-My says:

    There is nothing on your list to get upset about. If you are outraged over it it’s because you want to be outraged. My guess is that walking around in a huff is your natural state of being.

  7. E says:

    We are supposed to be living in a free country. As long as they don’t break laws, I don’t expect them to assimilate. Did our ancestors assimilate to the Native American culture? (no taxes, no debt…women do all the work…might not have been a bad idea)

  8. robbie says:

    The insanity of the left may well have reached that conclusion.

  9. Rick Hamell says:

    Can we stop with the Cut and Paste “false outrage” questions?
