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!

Kirie eleison! Yaa Rabbu-rHam!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.

if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
