I'm less concerned about people praying in a park than I am of organized groups of people practicing martial arts. I mean, martial arts can be used for fighting!

Why is it that these threads always go off topic? Always!! Choose any thread on this site relating to religion, or racism or whatever, and see how off topic it goes.
What you see happening in these threads, particularly the ones about Muslims is something called culture shock. Most people know only of religion what they have been taught since birth, so when they see something out of the ordinary they react with confusion and fear. It is a natural response. A conditioned response of being brought up in a system which teaches us to fear strangers and see others not like ourselves as foreigners, alien, something to be shunned.
"The gay guy", whose screen name is clearly written above his post, would like to point out to "the Muslim" the lack of clarity within the above paragraph.

About Islam and America.
Islam is a way of life, not limited to religion. According to Islam rules, the country law where they reside take precedence over syariah, as long it doesnt conflict with the syariah. As for the gay guy, America allow gay, the Muslim have to obey the law. They might not like you kissing your husband/wife but they cannot do anything to you. Its because the American law take precedence over syariah (to a limit). In my country, you might get jailed for sure IF you are a Muslim that is, because Islam country forbid that.
