in response to reader comment: Misguided friend

Submitted by the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan (Australia), Mar 31, 2010 at 03:33

Mr. Bara, residing amongst Infidels n Australia , writes:

"So, this is the crux of the discussion: Do you support citizens of Turkey in their quest for democracy where everyone is equal before the law or are you in favour of a bunch of generals above the law and bent on imposing an unwanted authoritarian ideology on the citizens? Where do you really stand, my dear Grand Infidel?"

Of course the answer you want to your rhetorical question - is a Turkey where all are equal before the law but I'll go on step further and specify that it is not to be Islamic law

"...And why are you not faithful to your partner and choose to be an infidel, I wonder?"

Lost me on that one - why am I not faithful to my partner? Of what relevance are my p[ersoanl relationships and the probity or lack thereof to this discussion. But just to set your mind at ease - I never stray.

I note you gave no answers to my points. But that's not so unusual from people who have no case.
