If they want to get rid of Islam why not get rid of Christianity as well? At least that way the pedophile priests will stop using kids for sexual relief.



Are these percentages representative of the nations Republications as a whole?

Thankfully no not all republicans are brain dead morons.


You do realize, that most of those allegations comes from the catholic church right? The Catholics are NOT Christians and they never believed in Jesus in the first place.




"What profit has not that fable of Christ brought us!"
- Pope Leo X





Pope Leo X
Pope Leo X, born Giovanni di Lorenzo de' Medici, was Pope from 9 March 1513 to his death in 1521. The second son of Lorenzo the Magnificent, ruler of the Florentine Republic, he was elevated to the cardinalate in 1489. Wikipedia
Born: December 11, 1475, Florence, Italy
Died: December 1, 1521, Rome, Italy
Predecessor: Pope Julius II
Parents: Lorenzo de' Medici, Clarice Orsini
Cousins: Pope Clement VII
Children: Pope Pius IV


The Catholics were ALSO behind the crusades while murdering REAL Christians in the process.

These are Historic FACTS that no one can deny.

As for the OP, and what is happening with muslims. Its a trojan horse to invite refugees. Remember its a trojan HORSE. There are reasons why people are against accepting them in. Just look at germany, unfortunately trump is right on a few things, however.. wrong on so many others.

Somehow this topic has drifted from the poll in question back to the issue of the refugee situation. "The practice of Islam" still includes many American citizens, lest people forget that. Said citizens have clearly defined and enshrined constitutional rights.

To wit, It disturbs me profoundly that anyone involved in trying to elect people to public office in the United States - anyone considering themselves politically active and therefore informed and civilly aware - would desire to outlaw any religion, of any stripe, given the preeminence of the 1st amendment's direct prohibition of doing so under any circumstances.

Has the word "Islam" in and of itself become so synonymous with violent acts and danger in people's minds that they really believe no one practices it as a religion and that it therefore should not receive the constitutional protections that all faiths do? To the extent that people want to render illegal an entire religion? In America?

Frankly, that terrifies me slightly. And I'm as non-religious as they come. (And yes, I do have concerns about militancy and violence and their spread - being concerned about threats and also being concerned about constitutional rights are not mutually exclusive propositions.)

Unsettling. "First they came for the socialists... " immediately sprung to mind.

Peace.

Trump's probably not hurting himself too much with his negativity toward Muslims either- only 49% of Republicans think the religion of Islam should even be legal in the United States with 30% saying it shouldn't be and 21% not sure. Among Trump voters there is almost even division with 38% thinking Islam should be allowed and 36% that it should not.



I honestly do not know what to say.

The hypocrisy is almost overwhelming.

Screaming about religious freedom, while at the same time wanting to make one of the worlds largest religions illegal.

I guess religious freedom only counts for Christians for the Republicans in Iowa. I can only hope that this line of thinking is isolated to Iowa, but I have a feeling its not.

So what do you think? Are these percentages representative of the nations Republications as a whole?
Of course Izlam should be illegal in the U.S...Freedom of religion??? Do you really think muzlims believe in freedom of religion???

Izlam is not compatible with our Constitution as Ben Carson tells us...It has no place in the U.S. of A...



First amendment says otherwise.

The US government is FORBIDDEN to make laws regarding religion

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Sorry but is pretty clear in writing


How sad a brit knows more about your constitution than you do

There is nothing to say unless one lives in Iowa.

State rights, and all that.

One state can legalize cannibus if they want too, another one can make sharia law a crime.

For those paying attention to just exactly what Sharia law is just might agree.

Honor killings.

Stoning adulterers.

And other medievil practices.


Read your own CONSTITUTION ? Or only the 2nd amendment ?

Here is the first

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

So no not a state right to ban religion.


Sure they can ban parts of shari law that break us law, and rightly so!

But iowa via that piece of paper you so worship can not outlaw islam.

I don't think even the complete "progressives", like in Mass. would go that far. That's ridiculous.


It boils down to state rights.

They either have them or don't.

I didn't agree with what Colorado did, but hey they are their own people.

It's the way it works.


No it does not in this case.

Freedom of religion is under the same category as the right to bare arms ect and makes it NOT a state right.

Cannabis is not anywere in the constitution so therefore a state right.

And trust you to be scared of a plant! Yes locking people up over a plant is such the model of freedom

a reply to: crazyewok

Yeah I have read it. After all I actually live here.

Read the first amendment, but we have free speech zones, and other limitations placed on it.

Read the second amendment that says shall not be infringed, and yet we have gun free zones, and other limitations placed on it.

Read the fourth amendment where it says RIGHT to privacy where none exists.

Then when it comes to Muslims all hell breaks loose.

Talk about an epic lack on consistency.
