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.
