Muslims are welcome here

The front-page story “Trump’s anti-Muslim video tweets draw fire from Britain” also draws fire from me and other Christians who believe in freedom of religion in our own country. Islam is one of the Abrahamic religions, related to Christianity in its ancient source. It is a peaceful religion, but a few radical sects are not so peaceful, as in Christianity. We all have our radicals who give the religion a bad name.

Thank you for exposing Trump’s tweets as misleading and unacceptable to previous presidents of either major party. This was just another example of Trump’s failure to check his sources and willingness to blame the religion for the actions of a radical group. Our Muslim neighbors are peaceful, good citizens. They should be as welcome here as any other religion, or no religion.
