Reader comment on item: Enforce Islamic Law in Canada?

"So as not to offend sensibilities". This is the basic dogma of those who follow the example set in Milton's "Paradise Lost", of the one who would rather reign in hades than serve in Heaven.

At the very basic level, it truly is about how we allow the "I-thou" relationship that Martin Buber, Jacques Maritain, Nikolai Berdyaev, and Paul Tillich commented on; how we allow this relationship to influence how we live.
