With the Republican National Convention kicking off you can be sure of a few things – Trump will entertain (and his wife will plagiarise), the Second Amendment and gun laws will be talked about as life savers, and Islam will be a name is dragged through the mud.
We know that Trump ain’t fond of Muslims, we’ve seen Newt Gringrich say those who believe in Sharia law should be expelled (showing how misinformed he is in the process), and we’ve seen renewed animosity in the wake of the Nice attacks.

Chew on this:
Ah, if only fostering an understanding and combating religious bigotry was as simple.
