One way a faith can get a hearing is if it allows an oppressed people to express itself ... I send money to one group that evangelizes Muslims and get material from others, but I've not seen this as a conscious strategy.

Here's the latest from the AP's tendentious Nidra Pickler: "Founded by immigrants and praised as a haven for the oppressed, the United States now is struggling to decide the fate of as many as 12 million people living in the country illegally..."
