Unless You're Muslim. Then It's OK to Discriminate Against You. Especially by DHS.

At his signing ceremony in the White House’s Rose Garden, Trump delivered a speech steeped in religious pride and said the order “will not allow people of faith to be bullied, targeted, or silenced any more.”

He vowed to defend all faiths, saying the order showed the United States “will never stand for religious discrimination.”
Riight. I call bullshit. Anyone remember when The Donald was loudly proclaiming that he'd ban all Muslims from entering the United States once he became president?

We've had at least one sitting state supreme court judge who has declared that religions that do not follow the Ten Commandments aren't genuine. And that, of course, is just one example. You can find many more examples of government officials and even judges who have been perfectly happy to discriminate against people who follow non-Christian faiths.

You want to go look for examples where people have been bullying Muslims for practicing their faith? You want to look for places that are fine with people building churches, but panic at the idea of someone erecting a mosque? Won't take you very long to find them.

You want more proof? Change your last name to something that sounds vaguely Arabic and then try to enter the United States. Even on a U.S. passport, you'll damn near be strip-searched by the CBP goons for no other reason than your religion.
