There's one big difference, and it's the point I was attempting to conveyOriginally posted by Darkstar Rising@Nov 9 2004, 03:34 PM
And for every case like this, there are HUNDREDS of cases of minorities being killed because of their race, Homosexuals being killed for the sexual preference, Foreigners being killed for the nation of origin and Women being killed because they were women.
I don't think you can pretend that Christianity is somehow being trod upon in America, because it isn't IMO. Freedom of speech AS A WHOLE is under assualt here in America (some of that assualt led by Conservative Christians, but most of it from P.C. Liberals). Many Christians love Freedom of Speech when it's their rite to speak about their religious views, but cannot stand it when it's Larry Flint or anyone against their teachings.
Christianity itself is not in ANY danger here in the U.S., not remotely. If anything, it is atheists and anti-religion in Govt. types who have to fear nowadays. Clearly, the more religious (read: Christian) element in our society is now in control of our Government.
This actually leads me to an interesting idea for a thread.......
Hypocritical liberals with their PC induced speech codes are the first to point out that rethoric begets violence ... but there are no limitations where it pertains to rethorical attacks on people of faith
Now I'm all for people speaking their minds ... we cannot be responsible for the actions of every lunatic ... but the left seems to have a different set of standards
Their PC mantra reads ... All bigorty is off limits, except where it pertains to attacking people of faith
They are the worst kind of hypocrites ... they are what they accuse others of being
