WASHINGTON - Republican presidential front-runner's call for a ban on Muslims entering the United States draws fierce criticism and accusations that he is playing to Americans' fears, a day after President Barack Obama called for religious tolerance.

    How exactly do you build a wall around an ideology instead of a border?

    Do you realize that this sort of proposal strengthens, not destroys, groups like ISIS?

    How do you know who’s a Muslim and who’s not?

    Is Muslim just code for brown people?

    Do you understand that some people who immigrate from a Middle Eastern nation aren’t Muslim?

    What’s to prevent Muslims from lying on their immigration forms?

    In a Republican field with Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, and Ben Carson, how extreme do you have to be to be known as the Bigoted One?

    How little do you care about your fellow Americans that you’re willing to throw entire groups of them under the bus to further your own campaign?

    Which non-white, Christian group will you want to ban next?

    How has the Republican Party not disavowed you entirely?

  • “Corey Lewandowski….replied “everyone.””

    It is bigoted to lump “All Muslims” into one group, to deny them fair treatment and to deny them their human rights.

    It is not bigoted to criticize Islam.
    Religions don’t have rights – but believers ABSOLUTELY do!

    Bring the Muslim refugees to America – NOW. It is unfair to keep them out.
    Trump is a national disgrace.

    No Connie, people like you are destroying this country. Terrorists can only kill people and break things. Hysterics like you want to destroy our entire way of life, undermine our American values, rule of law, principles in order to feel safe for the moment.

    Benjamin Franklin had people like you pegged, “those who sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither”

  • For one of the few times that I have responded to one of your posts,Atheist Max,I agree with you 100%…I’m convinced that there is something seriously wrong with Donald Trump. SERIOUSLY .

    I agree with Trump that we need to know more about these people.
    Are they ISIS lovers and are just trying to find an easy way into our country?
    We already have too many ISIS supporters that were raised in America.

    Jesus spoke to a Samaritan woman at a well (and Samaritans were looked down upon by the Jews of his day). He shared spiritual truths with her, she shared them with her family, and they became believers in Jesus, the son of God (Matthew 3:17) and Messiah.

    Mr. Trump is certainly no Prince of Peace, as Jesus presently is (Isaiah 9:6) in his Father’s heavenly kingdom, and Jesus’ rule will thankfully replace ALL of man’s governments and rule (Isaiah 11:1-9) in the near future, after putting an end to ALL wicked ones on earth. Phew!!

    “these people” being????

    -All Muslims both within and outside the US? Several million people in the country who are under suspicion simply based on their religious belief.

    -Anyone who has brown skin whom Trump feels like demonizing at the moment? Like anyone forgot his views on Hispanics.

    “Are they ISIS lovers and are just trying to find an easy way into our country?”

    And you are going to find them how? If a terrorist is willing to commit murder and destruction of property nothing keeps them from lying about their religion.

    “We already have too many ISIS supporters that were raised in America.”

    Donald Trump and the m0r0ns following his lead is the best supporter ISIS can hope for. He repeats their rhetoric and does exactly what ISIS wants.
