Muslims experience U.S. freedom, respect


A few weeks ago a group of Muslims gathered on the lawn of the Capitol in Washington to pray. One worshiper remarked on how beautiful the Muslim position for prayer lined up with the Capitol and toward Mecca.

After the prayer one worshiper said he felt freer here to worship than in his own country.

I wish every Muslim could experience the freedom and respect we have for each other in this country. That just might reorient their thinking toward the restrictions of Shari?a Law and/or those of the Taliban.
