Re: “Let the Yorktown remind us of the fight for religious freedom

So much anger and disrespect in these comments and is a direct result of the obvious anger and disrespect we've been seeing out of our pres-elect for the last 24 months. I agree that if you don't believe in abortion as a tenet, then you should not be forced to fund something that goes against that. And the SCOTUS agreed and shut down the fines associated with failure to comply. Obama agreed and those that are insured through employment in these "religious" organizations can now find funding thru the feds when their own insurance does not cover the procedure. So there is no need to get terse or act of children here.

We surely need to come together, but shutting down an institution which is the very foundation of the USA's existence (immigration - Natives were the only inhabitants when our fore-fathers came to these shores) based on one's religious beliefs is not the way to do it. Isolationism will ultimately spell doom for this country and put us in much greater peril because we are no longer able to gather intelligence effectively so that we can protect ourselves. Isolationism is re-treating, like waving the white flag or cowering in the corner, locking doors (building walls) and hiding behind them. You can't see what's happening on the other side, so we are not able to prepare to defend ourselves. We must engage in the interests of national security.

We've got to find a way to coexist and respect one another because otherwise, this will devolve into mass chaos. I already feel unsafe now because of the rising bigotry, and that is not in line with the "Pursuit of Happiness" that the "Declaration of Independence" granted.

I would hope that our newly elected President, would seek to block DANGEROUS people regardless of their origins or beliefs, because the non-extreme of each faith far outnumbers the extreme so we need to vet everyone (as we do now) to separate the extremists and deal with them accordingly.
