What does spiritual growth have to do with national security?
Monks do their studies within the walls of temples.
Priceless antiquities exist through safeguarding.
I'm not against spiritual growth, but frankly none of that happens without a safe space (oh that phrase) with which to practice within.
One leads to another if ya know what I mean.

On the first issue why do people have a problem on a temporary ban while we review and implement stronger vetting procedures? Given what is happening in Europe it is only logical we tighten our processes to better adapt to a post 9/11 world.

No U.S. citizen is giving up any Liberty. Nice try though.
