Why is it ok for Christians to put their faith first but not Muslims?

I wasn't offended by Juan Williams having concerns about Muslims on a plane, I haven't flown since 9/11 so can't say how I would feel in that situation. However, his comment that if they were wearing Muslim garb they were obviously Muslim first, then American and implying there is something wrong with that did bother me.

I've also seen pundits say Muslims should openly proclaim their loyalty to this country over their faith.

Why is this ok? Why should this one religion be expected to put country first when no religion does that? Except maybe those who confuse Christianity with patriotism.

  • Every religion I know of puts God before country.

  • Exactly my point but many seem to think Muslims shouldn't be allowed.

  • I respect the Muslim faith but, it makes me a little nervous too. That is natural, I think.......

  • Christians don't "USUALLY" go around blowing up people "in the name of God." Just because they are of a different faith. I say usually because we do have a bloody history that I hope we have changed. Do we walk around blowing up buildings and suicide bombing people due to differences of faith? NO.

    I don't know why, but the face covering thing makes me a little edgy. I think it's because it makes it more difficult to see the reactions of the person and read them well. I don't question their right to where it, I just like to be able to tell what people think, and those things make it really hard.

  • Just a PS


    How many of the hi-jackers had on Muslim garb?


    How many had the traditional beard?


    The answer is none


    Why fear them on a plane?

  • I wonder how George Tiller's family would feel about this statement:

    Christians don't "USUALLY" go around blowing up people "in the name of God." Just because they are of a different faith. I say usually because we do have a bloody history that I hope we have changed. Do we walk around blowing up buildings and suicide bombing people due to differences of faith? NO.
