Its funny how things work

Reader comment on item: Nike and 9/11

Submitted by Jackal (United States), Sep 14, 2006 at 05:41

The strange thing is that if Nike had put a crucifix on a shoe they would be sued for forcing Christianity on people. They put something that resembles Allah in Arabic and they take heat because it is offensive to Muslims.

It didn't even say Allah but it came too close for thin skinned religious minorities. In this country you can't resemble Christianity because you are a biggot. You can't resemble another religion because it offends its followers. These same people would be offended if it was a cross or Star of David. They are only offended because they wanted to be offended. They just wanted to make waves and push their will on others.

Why do we let a minority bend the majority to their will with scare tactics and insane legal battles?
