Mr. Orlet brings up the only example of Muslim tolerance (Albania) to show Muslims can leave peacefully with non-Muslims. How naive. One example does not a trend make.

And please stop this canard that assimilation means adopting Judeo-Christian values. No one demands Buddhists give up their religion as a condition for immigration. There are no demands people give up their traditions except when those traditions contradict criminal laws. Honor killings are not allowed in western civilizations. Neither is genital mutilation.p>Governments may not force people to assimilate, but that doesn’t mean they are powerless either. Governments can actively discourage people from coming to a country unless they intend to assimilate. Governments can demand language proficiency and job skills before issuing a visa. Governments can ignore demands that a country set aside its culture and traditions so as to not offend immigrants. And, governments can prosecute those who violate criminal laws. br> — Garry Greenwood br> Gearhart, Oregon br> /p>

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
