Christians Tolerate, Why Can't Muslims

Reader comment on item: Muslim Taxi Drivers vs. Seeing-Eye Dogs

Submitted by DebT (United States), Apr 11, 2007 at 13:23

As a Christian I am offended daily by the sleaziness of my own culture. And I am expected to put up with it and tolerate it. So why should a Muslim come along and expect the whims of his or her religion to be accomodated by non-believers?

I keep hearing stories about Great Britain banning stories about pigs, hot cross buns and other cultural expressions that offend 'Muslims'. Gee, if I want to be offended all I have to do is walk into the local video store.

The price of living in a free society is putting up with things you find personally offensive. To these complainers I say 'get over yourself'.
