He can be right all he wants but not on my dime. Such protest is the job of politicians not prancing-abroad citizens.
Oh, I agree...however, I DO defend the concept of at least challenging rules and legislations and presenting ideas. I think it was good that at least the concept has been brought up and it had a chance to be debated openly...I think that is progressive. I would vote strongly against parts of it....but at the same time, there may be elements that can be incorporated that are less intrusive on the rights of individuals in this country. Part of being in Canada though is the fact that we do have the freedom to express our different views and opinions. That doesn't mean that we all have to abide by the views and opinions offered. There are alot of hateful views and opinions however that just...suck. They deserved to be treated as fringe concepts. I don't think that refusing sharia law is racist at all, anyway...that's what I want to get back to. I think racism is racist. I think that looking at the idea of sharia law and saying "what do you expect from people like that" (you know, something that paints all the folks with one brush) is racist. I don't think Sharia law is the only issue we have in our society. I look at many of the very right wing, political activist christian groups and feel that they, as well, are promoting scary ideas that infringeupon the rights of women, gays and lesbians, etc. That is worriesome.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
