Faith and immigration

Re "Where faith and work collide," March 27

I find it ironic that people in Minnesota are up in arms about Muslims refusing to do parts of their jobs because of religious beliefs. Why weren't they up in arms when Christians refused to do parts of their jobs, such as filling prescriptions?

The Somalis have fled to the United States for better lives. Well, let them get better lives and assimilate into the culture of their adopted country. They can have their religious freedom, but they can't push their beliefs onto others, just as others don't push what they believe onto them. They want to live in their own community, have their own schools, teach only what they want to have their children know, not what the wonderful country that took them in is about.
