Muslim leaders need to speak out against violence !
Religious freedom is something we celebrate in America, and there is no reason to fear the practice of any religion here. What is cause for alarm though is the hijacking of any religion by extremists and fanatics who use "religion" to attempt to justify violence and hatred.
I do think there is reason to be concerned that Islamic Extremists will try to use the growing Muslim presence in Europe and America to infiltrate and undermine the Christian principles that our countries and cultures are founded on. Christian culture and tradition must be preserved and protected in Western countries.
I think it is incumbent upon good, peace loving Muslims to denounce the extremist acts of violence that are being perpetrated against innocent people of all faiths around the world by Muslim extremists who falsely claim to represent Islam.
