Here's my problem with multiculturalism in the U.S.(I'm a green card holding Hispanic immigrant BTW):
You have 3 White Christians, 3 Arab Muslims, 3 Atheists, and 1 Hindu who have moved into one house. When they walk in they are each given a piece of
paper with the rules of the house that were already there before they moved in.
For a while this is fine for everyone as they try to get adjusted, and unpack their belongings. Everyone is following the rules of the house..But one
day the three Arab Muslims decide that they cannot live in a house that does not respect the establishment of Shari'a law. So they tear up their
pieces of paper with the house rules on them and begin to impose Shari'a on the rest of the house.
What happens? Christians get mad and begin squabbling with the Arab Muslims over the rules of the house. Christians now attempt to impose Christianity
and law based on strict interpretations of the Bible. What happens?
Atheists get pissed off. They start taking Korans and Bibles and burning them. They impose a strict no religion rule on the household. Even though the
original house rules respect the free exercise of faith in any form. What happens?
Hindu is now alone in a house full of angry people and no longer allowed to have a religion.
The minority suffers, house rules have broken down, and there is now chaos in the house.
These events can happen in any order. It doesn't have to be the Muslims who start it or whatever, and frankly that isn't the point of this little
story. The point is, if you advocate for "social justice" instead of equal justice
you are VIOLATING the rights of anyone not included in your
definition of "social justice".
Multiculturalism doesn't work. We are ALL Americans(if you live in America) and should all be playing by the same rules. Anything less than that and
you will sow anger and resentment and a push from opposing side to restrict or entirely take away the rights of the "other side".
If you want harmony there are a few easy steps:
Mind your own damned business
Play by the same rules everyone else does(Equal Justice)
Don't impose upon others
Have some respect for people who don't believe as you do.
Fight those who wish to change the rules for their benefit and only their benefit.
