Priests have no right to try to convert Muslims

I wonder if Michael Reagan would find it completely acceptable if a pair of Muslim Imams came to him and thrust the Qur’an in his face and told him that he will go to hell unless he converts to Islam. This is exactly what happens to me when I’m quietly at home enjoying a good book when there is a knock on the door and I am visited by the Christian Sect Jehovah’s Witness telling me I’m going to hell because I don’t believe as they do.

These priests went into the Muslim neighborhood in England to “convert” them. This is an incendiary act in itself. They really did this to ignite a fight.

So, it is like shouting fire in a crowded theater, which the U.S. Supreme court found not to be “free speech.”
