On August 17, 2003 the We Refuse To Be Enemies Coalition printed an editorial by Adam Davis, David Good and Uzma Mirza stating that "this mistreatment of and discrimination against our Muslim neighbors is a threat not only to them but also to the very democratic principles of our country, founded as it is on that most remarkable document, the United States Constitution. Explicit in this Constitution is a 'pledge to protect' all the residents of this country, regardless of race, gender or religious affiliation. Freedom of religion is a hallmark of our civilization for which we are justifiably proud. This same Constitution established a democratic process in which all of our citizens have not only a right but also a responsibility in the government of our country."
