However, if its religion, of any description, then thats a personal choice on what idiocy they choose to believe in.

Found an article today on the plight of Muslims being pushed out of Myanmar. The report is calling it ethnic cleansing. I have to ask, what is wrong with saying, "No, we don't want you here,"?
Here in the U.S., it seems we have the right to do everything EXCEPT say no. I know it is pure ignorance to discriminate against anyone because of the color of their skin, their age, or their sex. These things are trivial.
But, I wouldn't want members of the Pentecostal church parading down the street carry rattle snakes, or be witness to an animal sacrifice by other religions. And I don't want Muslims here either.
When the constitution was being drafted, did any of the forefathers ever hear the word Islam? I'm sure if they saw Islam coming this way they would have made adjustments to bar it from the U.S.
As for the Myanmar event, I hate how people are being hurt, but I'm telling you if we don't draw the line right now, the nation of Islam is going to take over the world.
If any religion can cause so much hatred in the world, then that religion is not working. That religion is not a religion. And, I want to say no to it spreading into my country and all over the world. Go ahead, bash me, call me every bad name imaginable, but that's how I feel.
even if the Mufti of Constantinople were to send a missionary to preach Mohammedanism to us, he would find a pulpit at his service
sober inquirer after truth
"the bill for establishing religious freedom... was finally passed,... a singular proposition proved that its protection of opinion was meant to be universal. Where the preamble declares that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed, by inserting the word 'Jesus Christ,' so that it should read 'a departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion.' The insertion was rejected by a great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend within the mantle of its protection the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mahometan, the Hindoo and infidel of every denomination."[

Considering the very first country to recognize the US was an Islamic state, Morocco and that the Sultan placed our shipping under his protection during the revolution to deter pirates because nobody else would, that Washinton as President wrote a letter to Sultan Sidi Mohamed increasing our ties to them and leading to our oldest unbroken treaty with any nation then it should be clear the US has been involved with Islam from the start.
ANY form of ethnic cleansing is wrong IMO,
