Agree with all that, but I don’t expect anyone who believes that abortion is murder would change their mind on that basis.
Nobody expects them to change their mind. I wouldn’t expect a Muslim to change his mind about drawings of Muhammed, either — but I damn well expect them to learn to live like civilized beings and keep their shit to themselves.

That’s how The USA was founded: by fundamentalist Christian Puritans who hated the liberal religious laws of Stuart England, where they were forced to respect and tolerate other faiths. They came here so that they could punish anyone who did not believe as they did. They were worse than today’s fanatical Islamic migrants in many ways. Islam is out of phase with Christendom by about four centuries.
At least it was that way in the New England settlements . Virginia was more about trading and markets – America’s other national religion which is also intolerant of dissenters.
