Further EU expansion..is it a good idea?

Or is the EU getting too diverse?

There seems to be a sea change in how the populations of the various countries feel about new members and potentially new members. I see signs here stating Portugal for the Portuguese. I hear grumbles from others about too many foreigners coming to work in their cities.

Now, the EU is having discussions with Turkey about potential membership.

What do you think about this? Is Turkey destined to be an EU country? Geographically, they have a foothold. What about culturally? Should their majority religion play a role, despite the avowed allegiance to secularism?

What do you think? About Turkey specifically, but more importantly, about expansion in general?

Please be civil and have a thick skin.
