Rethinking political correctness

Reader comment on item: Two Decades of the Rushdie Rules

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), Oct 5, 2010 at 12:48

It is anyone's guess when the breaking point will occur re ending political correctness, a broad term that has under its umbrella, religious freedom and the freedom of speech. Is there a law in this country banning the freedom to draw or depict a living or deceased person or ridiculing a religion or deity? Did Salman Rushdie cross an invisible line? Why does Islam insist on special treatment? Why do some Muslims become so enraged at cartoons of Mohammed? Shall other religions be ridiculed openly, but not Islam? There needs to be a change in people's thinking---no more cowardice, but standing up to the bully. The more we capitulate to Islam, the more our freedoms will disappear.
