Dwarfs. Often an incursion of dwarfs will cause good Christians to move. Atheist dwarfs are the worst.

The area where I grew up is about 10% Muslims of different ethnic origins- the next door neighbors are Palestinians, the people up the road are Egyptian, there are quite a few Pakistanis as well. Some of them have lived there almost twenty years. They haven't "taken over" because the other 90% (a mix of mostly Catholic Anglos, some Protestant and Mormon Anglos, Vietnamese Catholics, Vietnamese Buddhists and Indian Bahais and Sikhs and I don't even know what else,) haven't run away at the thought of new neighbors.
Mostly we just hope they'll open new places to eat. You can't have enough cheap, delicious takeout.

No, but seriously, I'm pretty sure you didn't see any woman wearing a burka, it's called a hijab. Some of them are quite stylish.
"(indians can be surprisingly racist)"
lol, yeah okay.

What a surprise. People want to be with people who are like them. Probably because the people who are not like them are often such jerks about it.
7/25/2009 2:13:02 PM
Plus, don't forget all the Christians in your area. Muslims, Hindus, Christians, whatever next? It must drive you fundamental cultists mad to be surrounded by religious people. Just wait until the atheists start moving in, bringing their false gods with them and building their scientific temples all over the place.

@994979 - No, you really don't want me to tell you more, they are in their late 40s, significantly overweight, but still sit on the deck in only a sports bra and shorts. They do drink a lot and are always passing out cheap beer and coolers to anyone that walks by if you are into that. (I stay away.) Sorry about bursting your bubble there.
@ Kinderklein - I am so sorry. Living here makes the days of living near the university and frat row seem like fond memories. It has nothing to do with religion, but people are just bat shit crazy in general. I am seriously considering living with relatives a BETTER option than staying for a fifth year here. Stupid economy or I'd be in my own house.

So, you're upset because hindus and muslims want to stick together because it infringes upon your desire to stick together with non-hindus and non-muslims?
7/25/2009 4:35:07 PM
Wait, and she's calling the hindus the racist ones?!
7/25/2009 5:05:51 PM
"Tough it out"? Tough what out exactly? Are you worried you might have to "endure" seeing someone wearing muslim clothing? Might you also suffer the terror of knowing that someone nearby worships the same god that you do, but calls him by a different name? Oh the horror....
7/25/2009 6:54:10 PM
I've lived all my life in an area where less then 20% are white.
it's awesome, the food rocks. vietnamese, korean, chinese, japanese, indian of all kinds, afghan, jamaican... it's gotten to the point where the european places feel foreign.
really, pad thai, curries, roti and doubles. that's a normal take out lunch. the fish and chips place is "culture food" around here.
hell, being around too many white people makes me feel nervous and I am one.
so yeah, I will never even begin to understand the mind set of these xenophobic idiots who can't handle a few Muslims.
7/25/2009 9:23:22 PM
Oh just stay already, you big fucking babies. They're Muslims, not Mormons.
7/25/2009 9:30:10 PM
Fine, stay away from my city. We've got a lot of Latinos and blacks here, some Pagans, atheists, and I'm pretty sure we've got some Muslims too. You'd die of a coronary the minute you stepped into the city limits.
7/25/2009 10:30:44 PM
I have actually seen a woman in a burqa at the mall. I live in Norfolk, Va...it really surprised me. Her husband was wearing a Hawaiian shirt and shorts...lol. So, I don't doubt that she actually saw someone wearing a full burqa. As for the rest of the post, my god woman, you are so full of hate. How do you function?
7/25/2009 11:39:47 PM
"Though once an area starts approaching 10% of its population being muslim it starts to be a real issue because it attracts more of them and your city becomes a hub for islamic activity...more and more moved there because they like to stick together."
You know maybe if you weren't such assholes to people of other faiths and ethnicity they wouldn't feel the need to "stick together".
I live in an area where both the school and mall that I frequent are probably 40-50% Asian if not more. It doesn't bother me in the slightest. Probably because I grew up in Fiji as the part of the Caucasian minority, so I never came to see people as "different" besides having trouble understanding other languages/accents.
If you just give it a chance, be nice, be neighborly and (whatever you do) don't proselytize then you'll probably find there is nothing at all bad or frightening about living in an area where you are in the minority.

When I was growing up, my neighbourhood had the parish church and a mosque in the same street, it was never ever a problem... I grew up with muslim and hindu friends too...I don't understand the problem...
7/26/2009 6:02:29 AM
anyone can be racist but my experience is that most are not. And I wonder how they reacted to your venom. Might be part of the problem. And is there something wrong with living close to another with a different belief system? Or does it waver your faith? If it is the latter you may not have much faith
7/26/2009 9:11:29 AM
If I were in your situation, I would probably move because I would not want myself or my family surrounded by islam
Is it because your a xenophobic bigot who can't deal with the fact that there are actually people who do not share your beliefs?
but I can understand why many people would rather stay put and tough it out.
"Tough it out"? Is it so hard for you people to deal with others who have different beliefs than your own? You act as if having to be around those of different faiths is some kind of burden that you don't feel you should have to bear. Your infantile intolerence is down right pathetic.
For one thing, there are doubtless going to be many opportunities to witness there
So people are nothing but a conversion opportunity to you? It's nothing but blatant selfishness, you only see others as a way for you to score points with your "god".
There is a growing muslim population in my area too and I see a lot of burkas, but it does not feel overwhelming yet.
Alot of Burkas, or a lot of Hijab's? I know people like you, and I know how you see a headscarf or veil and immediately translate that to "Burka". The use of burka's throughout the muslim world is not all that common outside of extremely fundamentalist muslim groups where as the hijab is. But I wouldn't expect you to understand that given the fact that you only see peole of other religions as an opportunity to score points at best, and as heathens to be converted or killed at worst.
Though once an area starts approaching 10% of its population being muslim it starts to be a real issue
An issue for you maybe, but people are free to live wherever they wish to, regardless of whether or not it offends your delicate christian sensabilities. This is not a christian theocracy and you don't get to decide where people get to live, no matter what their choice of religion is.
because it attracts more of them and your city becomes a hub for islamic activity.
And what is "islamic activity"? Is that your fundie codeword for terrorist? You act as if these people, people who worship the same "god" you do, are nothing more than vermin, for no other reason than that they don't believe the same things you do.
That's what happened with hindus in my area.
Oh, so your an equal opportunity bigot?
I moved into my neighborhood about ten years ago, and when some hindu families moved into the neighborhood across the street more and more moved there because they like to stick together.
So? Is it suddenly wrong or criminal for people who are not christian to live in the same neighborhood?
Pretty soon all of the other families moved away because they no longer felt welcome
Or did they because there share the same racist and bigoted sentiment as you?
(indians can be surprisingly racist)
And you aren't? Give me a fucking break, I highly doubt you came off as a good neighbor. From the way you act I'm sure they felt the same way about you, and they would have been right
Then, last year they built a huge, awful hindu temple nearby because the population had grown enough to support one
Oh no! What are they thinking? Don't they know that this is America? Don't them dirty hindoo's know that only christians is allowed to build churches here? This is a christian nation an' if they ain't christians then they should leave.
Does that sound like you? Because that the sentiment that you seem to be putting forth. The freedom of religion that is guranteed by the constitution is inclusive of all religions, not just christianity.
With three mosques, that sounds like what might be happening to your area.
Then you should embrace them, make them welcome in your community, show them that the entire country isn't full of xenophobic bigots. Show them the kindness and compassion that your religion asks you too. Let them know that not everyone in america hates muslims, that we are not a nation of modern day crusaders bent on wiping out all muslims. Show them that america is indeed the shining city on a hill that our founders envisioned, show then that we are better than our weakest links, that our freedoms are unconditional and universal, be they tired, poor, huddled masses yearning to be free, or hindus, muslims, or a member of any of the other myriand religions whose member have come america seeking a better life, a new start, a second chance, or simply the opportunity to achive the American Dream.
A truly free society cannot exist so long as even a single person or group is denied even one of the rights enjoyed by the rest of the population, that's why the unofficial motto, for almost 200 years, was E pluribus Unum "Out of Many, One", and not "Christianity uber Alles".
I'll definitely be praying for you!
Because that's been proven to do so much good throughout the past two millenia.

Absolutely no comprehension of the First Amendment whatsoever. None.
7/26/2009 4:26:35 PM
some hindu families moved into the neighborhood across the street more and more moved there because they like to stick together.
Because we all know that Christians absolutely abhor the concept of congregation, right?

Exodus 22:21: "You shall not wrong or oppress a resident alien, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt."
Leviticus 19:34: "The alien who resides among you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God."

"If I were in your situation, I would probably move because I would not want myself or my family surrounded by non-whites, but I can understand why many people would rather stay put and tough it out. There is a growing non-white population in my area too and I see a lot of gangsters and "Viva la Raza" bumper stickers, but it does not feel overwhelming yet. Though once an area starts approaching 10% of its population being non-white it starts to be a real issue because it attracts more of them and your city becomes a hub for n*****r/s***k activity. That's what happened with s***ks in my area. I moved into my neighborhood about ten years ago, and when some s***k families moved into the neighborhood across the street more and more moved there because they like to stick together. Pretty soon all of the other families moved away because they no longer felt welcome (Hispanics can be surprisingly racist) and now it is almost 100% s***k. Then, last year they built a huge, awful Catholic church nearby because the population had grown enough to support one. With three Catholic churches, that sounds like what might be happening to your area. I'll definitely be praying for you!"
