    Just a point of interest, anybody here--How many Muslims do you actually know?

    I am not castigating Muslims.
    I was just sharing a video sent to me describing the ultimate demise of MY culture.

    I know about 12 or so, do you?

    I have known quite a few, including a brother-in-law, a nephew, and two nieces. Also several members of my church who married Christians and sought out a church where both would feel comfortable. Add to that a fair percentage of the kids that attended my school in Europe when I was a child, people I met in passing in Morocco, Turkey, Lebanon and Syria, and numerous kids that I have interviewed for admission to college over the last ten years.

    I have known many Muslims since my college days. My son-in-law is one. My doctor is one, too. I have been a guest in their homes. A number of them I have counted as friends. I have found none of them to menacing to non -Muslims. They have invited me to community dinners celebrating the end of Ramadan. Several Jewish rabbis as well as Christian clergymen were in attendance which surprised me.

    I have had many discussions about religion with them of course.--mainly comparing mine with theirs.

    That does that mean I am going to join up. I own three dogs and they are considered to be unclean animals. Just a lick of a dog requires elaborate washing before prayer. I am too irreverent to pray five times a day. Islam is just not my cup of tea.

    I don't think Islam is going to make a big inroad here. For one thing, the initiation into the religion for males is the same for Judaism.

    Believe it or not......I guided a pheasant hunt for some Muslim guys.
    When they shot the bird they had a ritual they performed.
    Great guys, but I ain't drinkin' no blood!

    Again, I am in no way castigating Muslims.

    We Americans are creating our own demise.
    I stated that in my opening.

    I am also not intending to make a fight, just sharing someone's perspective.

    Culture is a dynamic thing. It is continuously changes. Ours is so fluid that it sometimes is difficult to see where it is headed. Overall, I would say that it is somewhat better than it was in the late 60's and 70's. But, it does appear to me it is much too prone to follow the Gospel of Self.
