Either one  walks on eggshells or a minefield around the society of the "religion of peace" and must know precisley what one is stepping on next or hostility will emerge. Lord, have mercy!

More from the religion of peace. So when is someone going to do something about this?

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
