Quote of the Day

| 1 Comment
The latest Islamic outrage over the Danish cartoons represents an erosion in the very notion of Western tolerance. Years ago, the death sentence handed down to Salman Rushdie was the dead canary in the mine. It should have warned us that the Western idea of free and unbridled expression, so difficultly won, can be so easily lost.

[O]nce one starts down the road of self-censorship, there is never an end to it.

This whole cartoon outrage thing is so baffling to me. It's clearly a non-western line of thought to get so mad about something. In my mind it's like...oh, well, that guys drew a really stupid cartoon...(move on) but it's such a big deal to them! I have been seeking to find what it is in their mindset/religion that makes this so important to them!
