I get so mad sometimes!

all the muslim bashing going on. wasnt this country built on freedom? isnt their speech as free as ours? are they not as free as we to choose their religion? where do you draw the line? I am not saying dont have an opinion. I am not saying there are not muslims who really are problematic. or even a pain in the ass. but what I am saying is you can not put all muslims in the same basket unless you intend to put all christians in the same basket. all disabled people in the same basket. all women. all men. all presbyterians. all agnostics. all people of color. all people hispanic. all people with blue eyes. all people with green eyes. you can see how ridiculous it becomes. Not everyone who believes in the Muslim faith is bad. Just as not everyone who believes themselves to be of the Christian faith are not good. not everyone with a physical disability has a mental disability and not everyone with a mental disability has a physical disability. you just cant treat everyone exactly the same. and it isnt fair to anyone when we start generalising that "all muslims must go" I might be inclined to chant "all christians must go" as there are plenty of those who do no good. so next time you want to complain about the muslims dont feel you cant, but at least have the decency to say "the bastards who kill our soldiers every day" or those who wage war on our country or SOMETHING to differentiate. not all christians are good. and not all muslims are bad.
