I see people are up in arms about a Muslim flight attendant who refused to serve a passenger.
Those same people want the county clerk in Kentucky to stand her ground for faith.
If you cannot see the problems all this religious liberty is and will continue to cause, you are simply willfully blind.
Religious liberty does not give anyone the right to discriminate.

As Americans we live by the law of the land, and as citizens we may agree or disgree with some of the rules.
However, we cannot pick or choose as Kim Davis is asking us to do.
She chose to run for the job in the country clerk’s office and has no right to refuse issuing a marriage license to the gay couple in question.
America is great because we all learn to live with one another regardless of race, creed or color.
Perhaps Kim Davis needs to seek employment in another area.

More on Trump
I think Donald Trump has hit a lot of the right nerves and for the most part, his boisterousness hasn’t hurt him yet. (See: “Trump takes swipe at Carly Fiorina’s looks,” Thursday, Sept. 10)
I use the word “yet” because he is undoubtedly intelligent, but he needs to strike a finer balance of prudence and tact.
If he sticks to the issues and presents a plausible plan to “Make America great again,” I’ll support of him.
But, if he shoots from the hip and doesn’t harness his lip, voters will insist on a calmer person with a finger on the proverbial “nuclear button.”

At the anti-Donald Trump rally in Dallas, the organizer was proud of putting Trump’s face on a Hitler poster.
I’m not seeing any similarity between a wall to slow illegal entry and gas chambers.
Neither do I see attempts to enforce federal immigration law as similar to exterminating a race.
In addition, the rally was in Spanish, not English.
It’s just another example of the double-standard speech rules for offended subcultures.
It’s also a pretty good little Trump campaign ad.

On Sept. 11, 2001, a tragedy shook the foundations of not only buildings, but of society worldwide.
A generation has been raised in a decade of two wars and violent conflicts. Islamophobia has also affected innocent children and families across western civilization.
Amid confusion over the tenets of Islam, the Ahamdiyya Muslim community is spreading the peaceful message of Islam through community service.
For the past four years, the community has held blood drives in more than 150 cities across the Untied States titled Muslims for Life to commemorate those who lost their lives in 9/11.
Collections have totaled nearly 40,000 bags of blood to save 120,000 lives.
The drives and service projects for charities such as the North Texas Food Bank have come in partnership with other faith-based entities, churches, synagogues and secular or atheist organizations.
We would like each and every American to know that the Ahmadiyya Muslim community will continue to sacrifice for the country we call home.

There is a saying in the Middle East: “He who has the biggest guns wins.”
While the U.S. withdrew most of its guns from Iraq, others were building their arsenals.
The Iran agreement negotiated by Secretary John Kerry is a done deal as the U.N. as well as the other powers have all but implemented it.
The Iran deal is not as good as it could have been and not as bad as the critics say.
Even if Iran does not build a nuclear weapon, it will increase its power by gaining access to enormous amounts of money.
Regardless, Iran is about to get really big guns.

Doesn’t Hillary Clinton and her team know the cover up is worse than the crime?
If she would have confessed and apologized months ago to the private email server mess, most people would have forgotten about it by now.
I guess it takes a focus group saying that people wanted her to address the issue and the result of a recent poll where people were asked to describe her in one word.
The three most common answers were liar, dishonest, and untrustworthy.
Sorry Ms. Clinton, too late on the apology. Please go back to giving speeches.
Although I have a feeling those enormous speaking fees won’t be there anymore since most were likely payments for future access to her when she become president
