Couldn't have said it better myself.AgedGrunt said:"She was asking for it" is apparently a valid defense of Islam, and by extension its regard for free speech and women.greatcheezer2021 said:i think if you're going to punch the hornets nest that you've allowed to take root in your own home, you better be ready for a response.
obviously people on both sides of the party did not think it thru before executing a few decisions.
usually this culminates into "what were you thinking" and such as "they got what was coming".
Also ITT: people bending their morals/principles in ways they never would for any other religion, and side-stepping hypocrisy charges by labeling it hate speech and racism. Hilarity would ensue if people got their way and established precedent of protecting religion as Christian and Jewish lawsuits would come like a flood.
Everyone should be careful what they wish for about free speech rules.
When we have people saying shit like this:
We are living in a time where people don't understand the nature of free speech. It's not just a law, its a concept.GamemasterAnthony said:This was definitely something that needed to be said.
