Question Of The Day

Read this:

Muslim abuser who 'didn't know' that sex with a girl of 13 was illegal is spared jail

Where is a lynch mob when you really need one?

There is a serious philosophical question that I really need to think about. I'll get back to you folks later.

UPDATE -- 0948 CDT:

What is the purpose of religious tolerance?

The individual is the sovereign authority in a civil society. Because of this the government cannot impose a belief, including a religious belief, upon him. Thus any religion that accepts the individual as sovereign authority in a civil society can and must be tolerated.

Under Islam man is the property of the deity. A person has no rights, cannot enact legislation, and cannot establish and uphold a moral standard. Compliance with Islam must be imposed by force. Furthermore a Muslim is permitted to deceive or otherwise use non-believers for their own gain and even commit murder. An underage girl who is protected under a rational code of law is seen, literally, as a usable object under the doctrine of Islam.

Such behavior, which denies the rights and sovereignty of the individual, cannot be tolerated in a civil society.
