100 Words on Loving Our Neighbor

I have been having an interesting discussion with a friend regarding Islam, immigration, and the US travel ban. I believe there are far too many generalizations made against Muslim people. There are a minority of fundamentalist, extremist sects in Islam, just as there are in other religions and ideologies, including Christianity. I wouldn’t want someone to put me in a box and say “Christians are blank and thus not welcome here.” I want to ensure Muslims get as fair a shake as any of us. I believe strongly that love and kindness towards the foreigner and refugee must trump fear.

Thanks. Appreciate the clarification, too!

Agreed "sect" is too broad. Was reading about Salafi and the subgroup Salafi jihadist seems the one that can be more violent.

What would be better phrasing?

Was reading…, the trends section.
