Remember that what makes us great is that we are a free society. What makes us great is that we allow people to live their lives the way they want, so long as it causes no harm to others. Our greatness does not depend on us being a culturally homogenous sea of WASPs.
    I'm from the UK but similar sentiments here. I've lived in one of the most multicultural cities in Britain and it's only cranks and crackpots that see terrorism in everyone wearing a turban and the like. What's even more ironic is when evangelicals who use a case such as this have no problem with someone like Phil "Duck dynasty" Robertson extolling the pursuit of girls as young as fifteen...

    Child "marriage" shouldn't happen, period.
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Indeed ... children (including teens) need to be protected from predatory adults.
    As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes."
    When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics."
    When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty
    -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.

    Everyone who has not believed the Gospel of grace is not saved, no matter what else they believe or do.
    By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

    And lots of us read the Bible, which talks about a one world government in the end days.

    Let's just say for a minute that what you suggest is true:

    Isn't it inevitable according to your scriptures? Isn't it (in one way) a good thing? Doesn't that mean your Lord is coming? Why are you standing in its way? You can't stop it. It's been prophesied.

    Here is the reality: people have been using that schtick to manipulate the flock for centuries. Always with the same result: false alarm.

    If you want to add the "one world government" into your diet of paranoiac fantasies, fine. Leave the rest of us out of it. Don't use your overactive imagination to stifle the progress of people trying to make the world a better place.

    After all, like I said before, if its prophesied, you can't stop it anyway! Leave us alone! Why don't you dig a bunker in your back yard, buy a bunch of Jim Bakker buckets-o-food, and wait until it becomes painfully obvious to everyone that your predictions aren't coming true?

    One of the main issues I take with Islam is all the whack jobs trying to usher in a new "jihad". It's pure foolishness, but there's no convincing them of that. Luckily, most Christians are too sensible to be roped in to (yet another) end-of-times prediction.

    That is some messed up logic!!!
    Next you will be telling us that we should never help the poor get out of poverty because the Bible says we will always have the poor with us.
    So if GOD says we will always have the poor with us, then we shouldn't try to stop it by helping anyone out of poverty.
    Luckily most are too sensible to get roped in by your faulty logic.

    How much longer will it be before the statement you just made will be considered hate speech?

    What should citizens do when their government makes laws supporting perversions, one after another, just to appease the diversity of cultures in the world?

    I'm not being flippant, I'm being serious about the question.
    At what point does one draw the line in the sand and say 'no more'?

    They're close to that point now. The cops are already monitoring internet postings for "hate speech" against Mohammedans. Soon, if enough said that disagreeing with ANYTHING about Islam is hateful, there'd be new hate speech laws on the books within a week. Non-Muslim Brits would have to remain silent or risk imprisonment...but they're already facing that now. We know it, he knows it. But he'll lie about it anyway.

    The reason the otherwise obscure Canadian academic Jordan Peterson is now famous and NYT #1 best seller is entirely Canada's fault. It is because Canada is on a fast track toward totalitarianism; parts of it have already arrived.

    Peterson stood up and said something that, today, is as bold as it is unusual: while there are some things which government is justified in telling you you CAN'T say, he said government should never be able to make laws telling you what you MUST say (the whole point of Canada's sodomite pronoun laws).

    But the Peterson affair is just a symptom of the problem. The real problem is, once faceless career bureaucrats get a taste of that level of power over other people's lives, they will not let it go willingly and will always seek ways to expand it.

    That's why it's a small step from a government saying one religion above all others cannot be criticized...to telling you that that same religion must be spoken positively of, if it's to be spoken of at all.

    That is NOT something impossible to imagine happening in modern Europe. Canada has already reached that point re: homosexuality, and yet, homosexuals are not a dire existential threat to Canada. But Mohammedans are indeed an existential threat to much of Europe. So once again I insist that it'll be within a decade (if current trends continue; there is growing resistance to account for in a few countries) that some European nations will become de facto Muslim nations by virtue of not only what you cannot say but, eventually, what you must say about Islam.
