“Unfortunately, I think that most Canadians will probably agree that government should censor opinions that might harm vulnerable groups. They will have a huge difficulty in sorting out the difference between censorship — using state power to silence people —and censure — which is using other means such as boycotts, protests, letters to the editor, starting one’s own publication, etc. to protest opinions that one finds objectionable. They will not see how this will affect them, so they will not care.”
PLUS Mark Shea:
“Efforts Continue to be Made to Explain Why the Islamic World isn’t all That Backward. It’s important to maintain that fiction if you are going to support the grand secular lie that Christianity is indistinguishable from Islam. So you make sweeping claims about the oppressiveness of the Church and don’t ask why both the Renaissance and Scientific Revolution were born in a Christian cradle while simultaneously saying ‘Muslims invented chess and algebra once–long ago’. Yes. Very long ago. Never forget that the savages who committed 9/11 had to steal western tech to do it.”
And so much more at an all-new FreeMarkSteyn.
