Separation? What separation?

I forgot that we are a nation founded on christian values and hot dogs.
Typical example of our fearless leaders... May God bless 'Merica!

ISIS is bringing the world a religious war. Not sure it would make any sense to have a non-religious response - underestimating or mis-judging the enemy is a recipe for disaster.

There's no need to have a religious response because that is giving them more reasons to hate. "Let's reply to a religious confrontation with a religious statement"

They're all idiots just wanting to fear monger.

Glad our new Speaker has a more level head than his fellow party members:

“We can be compassionate, and we can also be safe...[The proposed bill] calls for a new standard of verification for refugees from Syria and Iraq. It would mean a pause in the program until we can be certain beyond any doubt that those coming here are not a threat. All of us here—Republicans and Democrats—are hearing these concerns in our offices. People understand the plight of those fleeing the Middle East. But they also want basic assurances for the safety of this country.”

He later goes on to say that we don't need a religious test, just a security test.

Sorry - I wasn't clear. I meant we should not ignore the religious nature of the war they are bringing; we are not fighting a specific country, and their motivations should impact our response. As an example - if these were fascists across multiple nations, we would need a response that was not based upon those nations, but upon those fascists. (Actually - they are just religious fascists).
