I’m just going to say it. This talk we’re beginning to hear from Trump and his surrogates about a Muslim registry and internment camps is dangerously un-American horseshit. It’s historically ignorant, it’s hateful, and we must put a stop to it. We’ve been here before. We know where this leads.
As a non-believer, I disagree deeply with the religion of Islam. But if, despite all our efforts, the registry ever becomes reality, I will register myself and stand with my fellow citizens. The freedom of religion is one of our most sacred American principles, but it will die if we don’t protect it.
