    It's like the xenophobe special olympics around here, some days.

    You can attack me and make it personal all you want. That doesn't change the fact that some woman may get 40 lashes for naming a freaking teddy bear Muhammad.

    What kind of insanity produces that thinking?

    It can only be personal, hondo. It's clearly not based in any kind of logic. That's been shown to you time and again.

    The fusion of religion -- any religion -- with government will produce this kind of injustice. 'Twas ever thus.

    Everything else is just you hating brown people.

    The same that condemns a man to the fiery pits for his sexual orientation.

    Good thing we never have overzealous prosecution of ridiculous mistakes here in the enlightened Judeo-Christian West.

    Oh.

    40 years in prison because IT doesn't update the filter software?



    (And yes, I'm posting it on both threads. Grrrrrr.)
     
  9. The moral-equivalency police are working overtime today.

    Big difference: there aren't people (I presume you mean Christians) actually throwing someone else into fiery pits. It may be someone's belief that will happen at the hands of a vengeful God at some point in someone's afterlife, and you can make your own call on that. But it's not happening in the here and now.

    On the other hand, there are Muslims who have been beheaded for homosexuality, adultery, etc.

    I've got nothing against people of any color. I have something against people of ANY color who decide they can do this to other people.

    A. Just because there has been religious intolerance in the past, does that mean we should never speak out about it now and in the future?
    B. I defy you to come up with any post, any time, that indicated I "hate brown people."
    C. Again, you can attack me all you want. Doesn't change a thing about what's going on.

    If they could, they would.

    And I'd rather they just took their shot than use representative government as their cudgel.
