    The sad thing is, know what the govt of Sudan is capable of, she DID get of light.

    Yet some call Americans religiously intolerant.

    These are the people some think we must negotiate with....to reason with, as if we were dealing with what we define as reasonable people. From a western understanding of reasonable....
    Thats seems like a monumental task....as close to impossible as I can imagine...

    Well we are tolerant compared to Sudan. What a fucking achievement. Maybe next we can try and top the life expectancy of the Rwanda, or try to kill less of our civilians with tanks than Burma does. Who knows what next great feat of humanity the mighty USA can accomplish!

    If we need to point to Sudan as comparison to defend our human rights record, we are obviously doing something terribly terribly wrong.

    Islam is a disease that needs to be eradicated from the earth.

    Islam is not a tolerant religion. It is a demanding religion. It is not as if the lady didn't know that going in.

    Even in western, cosmopolitan Beirut, I would never have named a pet or a stuffed animal Muhammed.

    It would be as insensitive as parading around St. Peter's Square in Rome with a yappy poodle that you had named "BAYYYBEEEE JEEEESUS".

    The fact that they have punishments in their justice system that are more draconian than ours is really only a matter of degree and not kind. Most of the folks clamouring about this case certainly support the death penalty in our own country.

    Well I guess a couple weeks in the slammer isn't enough for some people.

    I don't understand though. It's the kids who named the teddy bear after their prophet. Why don't they kill them?

    Bunch of savages.

    I expected about as much from you. Heaven forbid you notice that it IS an achievement; rather, point out instead that we are not perfect.:rolleyes:
