Response to MrScorpio (Original post)

40. "no one has the right to tell anyone otherwise"

Anyone has the right to tell anyone anything they'd like.

They guy is not a bigot, and you engaged in some serious non-sequiturs.

He said that mosques would likely close for lack of interest in a generation, and he's probably right - just as most mainline Christian denominations have hemorrhaged congregants over the last couple of decades.

In response to his - correct or incorrect - prediction based on general trends, you then go postal:

"And why do we need to close Mosques? Do we need to close Temples and Churches too? What's wrong with anyone following whatever religious belief they want to have?"

Where did "need to close Mosques" come out of what he said?

Religious belief, in general and across the board, is declining. Observing that objective fact does not evince any "need to close" a thing.

You basically accused him of opinions he did not get anywhere near expressing.
