From those who mistakenly believe that the United States is politically a Christian nation, wanting their god or gods (depending on how one counts) and their holy books to be the soul and sole laws of this nation.

Who claim that Muslims, all Muslims, are terrorists, including American Muslims fighting side-by-side with those of all faiths against the terrorists who happen to use Islam as their justification.
From those most irreligious American men and women, many of who claim that Islam is a violent religion, discounting any proofs that shows Christianity and Judaism equally as violent. Who will not recognize that many U.S. home-grown terrorists use Christianity as the basis for their actions, including the Ku Klux Klan, the white Christian supremacist movements, and the anti-abortionists who target doctors and women’s facilities with rifles and bombs.
