Suggestion for Toronto father and his daughter

Reader comment on item: Muslim Hours at Municipal Swimming Pools in the West

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Apr 14, 2013 at 04:20

Dear Dr Pipes,

You posted the story about a Toronto father who cannot watch his daughter swim due to women only swimming mumbo-jumbo. I have a simple suggestion for this child and her father: the girl should make a video of her class and post it on youtube. What will cost this family $0.00 to produce but will cost fundamentalists millions of dollars to censure. I am not joking. Fundamentalism is heading toward economic bankruptcy because of diminished productivity and increased expenses owing to its policies. If oil wealth had not sustained it, it would have long gone by now (I invite your readers to draw a mental picture of Saudi Arabia had there not been any oil). And, yes, if Toronto tries to ban people from making videos. we will soon see a new bankrupt city. So this is a win-win for freedom lovers and lose-lose for the fundamentalists. Can't ask for more.
