Dear Zeeshan Hafeez,

We in the West don't give a rat's butt about your condemnation. This is our part of the worls, not yours. If you are willing to accept our way of living and doing business, we welcome you with open arms. However, if you don't like the way we do things, I am inviting you to pack your bags and leave.

Whether you like it or not, our world is based on the JudeoChristian idea of individual responsibility. We let people live their own lives the way they want to because they will be the ones who have to answer to God. Neither Danes, nor Americans, nor Jews, nor Muslims will answer to God. I will answer to God, you will answer to God, and so will each and every individual ever born. But we will answer individually. We in the Westknow that this kind of open-mindedness can lead to uncomfortable and insulting situations, but we accpt that because of the great good that can come from it as well.

Now you may be willing to accept being told how to live your life. WE DON"T! Other Muslims may also be willing to accept being told how to live their lives. WE DON"T! Muslims may be willing to have religious police looking over their shoulder. WE DON"T! Muslims may be willing to have mullahs placing restrictions on their rights in the name of religion. WE DON"T!

So, if you want a country where you don't have to face to ordeal of individual rights, please leave. That includes getting your hypocritical carcass off of our infidel internet. The Net was created by the West to foster freedom, not to advanced the supression of people's rights by a bunch of third-world facists. If you can't deal with that, too bad!
