Do you still have rights in the US if you are a Muslim?
Unsure how many of you here read the Guardian but this account should make you concerned.
I would imagine this is the tip of the iceberg.

You should. There aren't just Christians in the United States. If you do not have rights because you are Muslim in this country, then that is an injustice.
Haven't read the story yet, but yes, of course you do. Freedom of religion is guaranteed by the Constitution, and while that doesn't mean that those guarantees will be respected by every individual you meet--nor even by every government action taken--you will definitely have legal, moral and other forms of support if you have to defend your rights.
American Muslims number in the millions--estimates range from 1.3 to 7 million. The range reflects the fact that official censuses do not ask about religion. Of that total, roughly a quarter are believed to be native-born Americans. Large numbers are naturalized citizens.
It would be idle to deny that there are, and have been tensions, particularly since 9/11. But there's no shortage of Muslim Americans who are well integrated into American society and who are doing well. In fact, I know a few.
Thank you for the link, I just finished reading the article, and It disturbs me to no end how some people including our government treats Muslims all over the world. It's ignorance is how I see it. 75% of Americans are of the Christian faith and haven't a clue about any other religion but their own. Christian's believe they are the only "good" people of the world, but at the same time they are the most hateful, bias group of all. Yes, it is true that a few fanatical Muslims were responsible for the 9-11 attacks but have we forgot what Hitler did in world war 2, after all he was a "Christian" and used his faith for his political gain only to slaughter millions of Jews. For the first time in my life I am ashamed to be American, and although I was born and raised in a "Christian" home and society, I no longer consider myself "Christian" because of all the hate I have been exposed to, and I live in small town middle America where we never have to lock our doors at night. It really is a shame.
Sounds like to me you are trying to instigate something, peace.
America is suppose to be freedom of religion for everyone.

Very rarely do I see a forum thread on Islam. I have not seen an atheist who has started a thread on Islam insulting Mohammed or Allah or just speaking out against them. Christianity and Jesus seem to be the target. I know it is because the US, for example, is considered a...

While more and more Muslims in America are not hiding their pro-Sharia agenda, non-Muslims here are also aiding them in their attempted Islamic take over of the country. Here is another example of dhimmi aid, and a highly disrespectful one at that!Muslim Flag Set To Fly On 9/11 In King KING, N.C....

It seems that Islam is on the rise in just about every nation around the globe.They are pushing their agenda onto any and every government that is TOLERANT, and using the freedom (and laws) in those countries to gain more and more control.The UK is a prime example, where political will is weak (at...
