Yes, I can tell you that having lived in Detroit for years, surrounded by Muslims, that I’m far more frightened of evangelical Christians than I am of Muslims.

I’m aware that radical Muslims are a problem with respect to LGBTQ issues, but even having lived among Muslims for a long time, the only serious persecution I’ve ever experienced has been from Christians.

I always find it ironically and darkly amusing, therefore, when conservative Christians rale against Muslims as the enemies of freedom.

If that ain’t the pot calling the kettle black, nothing is.
