Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: The Canadian "judge" has spoken

Submitted by Lisa (Canada), Feb 10, 2006 at 12:06

Frank, I have already called our MPP (Member of Provincial Parliament). I'm waiting to talk to our MP (Member of Parliament, Ottawa, Ontario). We just had another election on January 23rd so the MP does not have an office yet and it is very hard to track him down

Here is a link to a Canadian paper with the Editor's Pick (as they call it). I think it is good.

I especially find this part interesting
>> "We call on Western leaders to apologize and put restrictions on freedom when it involves religion," Khaled Mashal, political leader of the militant group Hamas that won last month's Palestinian elections, told reporters in Qatar. "The ball is in their court. Hamas will work with them to calm the situation. We have asked for dialogue, they are the ones who insist on clashing of civilizations."<<

"The put restrictions on freedom when it involves religion", is the key sentence. If that happens the Muslims will really have something to complain about. Suk (means sigh) talking about being thankful for what the western world has done to accommodate these people.

Is religion more important than free speech, or can they coexist?
