    Within the greater population these people are a tiny minority. In fact, there are valid and sensible arguments that holding these beliefs and indulging in these practices is a form of insanity. The only real power that these people have is the power that the vast majority cedes to them. Take back their power. If they rebel and act lawlessly, teach them what they need to do to co-exist as law-abiding citizens, including the threat of incarceration, actual incarceration and deportation if the troublemakers came from elsewhere. They must understand that the Rule of Law must prevail and that the Rule of Law is not arbitrary. The Rule of Law was imposed by the citizenry through their legislators. The Rule of Law must be enforced. These people would never act with such disregard as to the law in some other country. Stop being suckers for these religious lunatics.
