While to certain extent this is true there is a big difference between what all but a tiny minority of Christians would want. Firstly very few of them oppose secular democratic governments. They would be happy to convert all the non-Christians that they can, but still have a secular government employing people of all faiths and representing everyone. Secondly all but a few support equal rights for all, whatever religion. They would not want non-Christians to be unable to testify in court against Christans, nor would they want to prevent non-Christians from building or maintaining places of worship, or worshiping in public. They would not see expression of another faith as blasphemy, punishable by state law.

Also they would not want non-Christians to be subject to a punitive tax to make them feel subdued, nor believe that they should be killed if they did not accept the inferior treatment. On a personal level, very few would condemn Christians for having non-Christian friends apart from befriending them in order to convert them (though I have met a number of Christians who only seem to befriend non-Christians for this purpose themselves)

Comment It should go OK as long as they don't (Score -1, Troll) 295

It should go OK as long as they don't let Muslims in. They want people who want to support and be part of the society. Muslims are mandated by their belief to undermine non-sharia societies and when they have sufficient numbers take over. The people that they hoped would be paying tax to support the aging population will be setting off bombs in the streets, and eventually once in sufficient numbers tipping the elderly out of windows, voting for laws to discriminate against non-muslims and even the slightest suggestion that they aren't the most piecful and best of all people will be racist and/or blasphemy. You can see it happening now in France, Belgium, and the UK.

Our local taxi companies "outsource" requests for a wheel-chair accessible vehicle by putting the booking through to single a company which has wheelchair-accessible vehicles. This is evidently good enough to comply with the UK disability legislation. I guess (but don't know) that they have to charge the customer the same rate that they would have been charged by the original company, so maybe the local companies have to pay something to the company with wheelchair accessible vehicles, who will often have to travel further to pick up the customer, will have higher vehicle overheads, etc.

A lot of vegetarians can't handle meat without getting sick because their body stops producing enzymes to help digest it. A lot of people are going to get sick and confirmation bias kicks in. It will be the new MSG.

There will be some but not many. A lot of complete vegetarians won't try this, if they've been vegetarian for a long time they probably don't miss meat. Also it appears that the enzymes recover in a day so if they start with small amounts (which will probably be a recommendation) they will probably be OK.
