For months, I’ve noticed the growing number in the box to the side that counts Islamist terrorist attacks.  However, I’ve never before checked out the site that counter comes from — TheReligionOfPeace.com.  It is an awesome site, which I recommend you check out.

I was especially taken by the following comment I found there:  “Muslims are individuals.  We passionately believe that no Muslim should be harmed, harassed, stereotyped or treated any differently anywhere in the world solely on account of their status as a Muslim.  As an ideology, Islam is not entitled to equal respect and acceptance, because ideas do not carry equal moral weight.”   What a simply and elegant statement — “ideas do not carry equal moral weight.”  So much for cultural relativism and I couldn’t agree more.

    If only the Shia and Sunni believed that about each other…

    Oh, no, MacG, that would be bad. Muslims kill more Muslims than anyone else. It’s none of our business when Muslims kill each other, except to provide the means and opportunity.

    Yes, the let loves to confuse two quite distinct concepts:
     
    All individuals have an equal right to have an idea,
     
    BUT that does NOT mean that all ideas are of equal value.

    I would only support legalization if all the tax revenues off marijuana went into the military or things like roads.

    “…because ideas do not carry equal moral weight.”
     
    I read something similar a couple years ago, but applied to cultures.  In short, a person has rights, but a culture does not.  It makes perfect sense, and flies the face of multiculturalism.
     
    Morally and ethically, we have no obligation to protect, preserve, or propagate a culture, or idea, just because it is different.  In fact, a culture should be evaluated, and perhaps suppressed if it interferes with the rights of a human being.  An easy example would be the Aztecs with their practice of human sacrifice.  We all know, if we are not fans of multiculturalism, which present day cultures should be suppressed.

    A person, we also understand, has rights which transcend the culture they live in, whether the culture permits it or not.
     
    Most multiculturists are misguided to the point that they will suppress the rights of an individual in order to promote the acceptance of other cultures.  What idiots!

    Jose:

    “Most multiculturists are misguided to the point that they will suppress the rights of an individual in order to promote the acceptance of other cultures.  What idiots!”

    Usually it’s to promote the rise of ONE other, favored sub-culture that the dominant culture, or power group thinks it can manipulate to crush another sub-culture. The problem comes when the favored sub-groub realizes that it’s just being used, and is expected to remain subservient to the original dominant culture or group: Europe. Be careful what you wish for…

    Bill Smith, liberals today seem to be doing the reverse.  They are raising all other cultures, merited or not, specifically to bring down Western, specifically American, culture.

    DQ, that’s not the case in Sweden and Europe. Their culture isn’t American. Nor is it Western. It’s Progressive. Muslims are bring that down as well.

    You are right, Don.
     
    The libs think they will still somehow float on top. They see themselves as a special Uber Culture. They do not see themselves as the last Westerners nobly throwing themselves off the cliff.
