Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

The Kind of Men Who Make Religious (and Racial, and Ethnic) Sensitivity a Priority

Is the call for tolerance always a code word for Western surrender? It would appear so.

Bored with Harlem, our ex-president has of late been stumping around the world for "tolerance", even at the expense of free speech in a thoroughly secularized culture like Scandinavia. Funny, I thought the Left always favored freedom over religious sensitivity, but then the God they insult is usually that of the West. Apparently, the prospect of honoring something alien was too good to pass up. Just goes to show what our elites really consider to be sacred. (One might predict that the mainstream Right would soon be following the Left's lead, but then Bush long ago made a habit of toadying up to the Muslims.)

You can read about Clinton's efforts here. The offending cartoons, which have now stirred up Muslim anger around the world, can be found here after you scroll down.
