Yes, but as long as they abide by the American constitution and values first, and display a deep love for America. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen that, as evidenced by the several American born Islamic terrorists, the most prominent of them being Anwar al-Awlaki. Islam is against freedom,…
Would be great if you actually did some sincere research of your own instead of espousing half truths created by mainstream media that serves the agendas of the islamaphobes.  What Islam does do is it destroys the notion that the current interest-based banking system that enslaves entire generations and nations perpetually is the only feasible form of a financial system. This is a blatant lie. Islam exposes the hedonistic tendencies of Western culture, and instead insists on the fair treatment of women so that they are not objectified as sexual instruments to sell products. But you readily confuse dark-age ignorance based cultures with Islam, which simply exposes your ignorance of Islam itself. Islam does not allow for the unfair treatment of individuals based on suspicion. So civil liberties is not just lip service for us. It’s a real principle that we live by. We don’t go accusing people haphazardly just to satisfy our paranoia and then concoct laws that denies such accused individuals of any rights to a fair trial. We insist on witnesses and valid evidence before punishing someone. Islam insists on modesty and moderation in everything, not just how women conduct themselves, but everything. from personal hygiene, to food preparation, to social conduct and beyond. It is a holistic system that focuses on root causes and not on symptoms.  Islam is a lot of things, none of which you described in your post. So I pray that independently-minded individuals will see through your jaundiced views and actually seek to find out the truth of Islam before caving in to this uninformed propaganda that does more harm than good. By the way, the American constitution that you so lovingly refer to has ceased to exist a long time ago. Or haven’t you been paying attention? You have more draconian laws in America than Draco defined himself. You have no freedom of movement unless your government says so. You have no civil liberties or right to privacy. You finance the 1% that is directly responsible for the collapse of your economy, and you’re powerless to do anything about it. You are a state enslaved by ideologies that no longer hold any value to the people that you’ve chosen to govern over you. Perhaps you should clean your own doorstep first, before launching uninformed attacks on a way of life that you seem to understand entirely from the tabloid-like mainstream news sources that share your contorted views of reality.

The Right is Right!: Should we allow Islam in America?

I believe that the greatest gift we can give our children is a healthy self-esteem. Without it, they’ll seek affirmation from the worst sources in their quest to feel appreciated. The greatest skill they can acquire is that of observation. Without it, they’ll struggle to tell truth from falsehood, sincerity from insincerity, and reality from … Continue reading

Insincere are those that find excuses not to engage when sincerely criticised. The profile of people that I follow has changed considerably in recent months, because I deliberately wanted to encourage more engagement with others of a religious persuasion similar to my own. However, as has been my experience to date, more often than not, … Continue reading

I know a man who lost his parents but refused to be called an orphan. Man enough to love a strong woman years older than him, worked for her and made her stronger, opened his heart to her, shared his fears to no one but her, was romantic and faithful to her till her last … Continue reading
