    This is part of the culture that SOME people want to bring to the western world.

    "Free speech and Islam appear to be sworn enemies. Anybody who dares to draw the Prophet, let alone insults Islam, must face the firing squad. That’s exactly what happened to 21-year-old Sina Dehghan. According to The Daily Mail, Denghan “has been sentenced to death after 'insulting the prophet' of Islam on an instant messaging app. Sina Dehghan was 19 when he was arrested by the Iranian revolutionary guard at a military barracks in Tehran in October 2015 for insulting the national religion on the messaging app LINE.”"

    Why oh why would Trump ever want to limit people like this from coming to our country? Weird, right?

    Remind me again how you can prevent thoughts from crossing arbitrary borders? There is no sharia law here nor will there be. There are practices in other countries that we find abhorrent but denying their citizens entry here does little to change those practices. What makes anyone think the people leaving those countries aren't leaving because they also are at odds with their government? You can't paint the world in broad brushstrokes.

    If no one pays attention to a border or it's problems, is it real?

    If another 21 year old was looking at a firing squad because they supported free speech (an American value no less), and decided the only way they could survive would be to seek asylum in the USA, would they be doomed only because they lived in an Islamic Republic?

    Do you also think all white men are responsible for killing native American Indians?

    We already have the death penalty so that part of the culture has already been here for a long time.

    "Thin" is not an function of number of countries, it's a function of scope of the proposed ban.

    I find it interesting that so many Muslims get so up in arms when someone insults their prophet.

    If their prophet was sent by the one they claim to be God, you'd think they'd have a little more confidence in that entity's ability to right those wrongs and deliver justice.

    No, I would offer asylum to this kid if I was able to.

    And no again. I guess I didn't make the world some big enough in the OP.

    Get back to me when we sentence someone to death for their religious views.

    How do I get to heaven, Steve? I'm ready for your tender answer. I have the popcorn popped, my iced coffee is topped off. This should be good. I was going to go see the movie "Life" today but I suspect this will be mope entertaining.

    Putting someone to death because they questioned your faith can't be the aim of any all powerful deity. But don't kid yourselves, in America religious zealots are all about, pushing their own version of divine morality from the guise of "Christianity".
