    An honest explanation. He put it well that basically all religious people follow as much of their doctrines as they want to. I'm not a fan of religion period. But you're not being honest if you can't admit that some religions are worse than others. Islam is by far the worst.

    They(too many) sure seem to be stuck on the part of their doctrine that says they should spread their religion by any means necessary. Until they(the ones that do) get away from that...they should be considered enemies of civilization and treated accordingly.

    I would just add the Left's pseudo-religion of cultural Marxism to that.

    Radical Islam is as much an expansionary fascist political system as it is a religion.

    Which is why the founding fathers were adamant about separation of church and state.

    Nobody is proposing to do away with that. The Founders assumed the US to be a Christian nation, but didn't want to give one particular Christian church the upper hand as in England.

    This is from Joseph Story, SCOTUS justice appointed by James Madison, the "Father of the Constitution":

    § 1868. Probably at the time of the adoption of the constitution, and of the amendment to it, now under consideration, the general, if not the universal, sentiment in America was, that Christianity ought to receive encouragement from the state, so far as was not incompatible with the private rights of conscience, and the freedom of religious worship. An attempt to level all religions, and to make it a matter of state policy to hold all in utter indifference, would have created universal disapprobation, if not universal indignation.
