    I've never seen anything quite like this. Read it, it's followed by comments at the site:

    Well, I guess there is something to it, but quite frankly, Muslims so disgust me, in their lack of voicing their abhorrance to this secular violence, that I pay little attention to any good they might display.

    What? Britain hasn't accepted forced marriages and honor killings yet? Intolerant wankers.

    Snappy new site design here!

    There could be something to this. If the white West were a little more intolerant, as the Muslims are, they wouldn't be in this mess to begin with. "Sanfranz Manzoor" wouldn't be lecturing the Brits, he'd be run through with a sword.

    Forced and/or arranged marriages are a holdover from feudal societies where families sought to improve their lot by strategic alliances through marriage. They have no place in modern society. Honor killings have absolutely no place in civilized society. They are rooted in that tribal tradition that many from the Middle East are steeped in, even after living in a foreign country for generations. Acceptance of the rule of law, the laws of man not the laws of their given religion, is a prerequisite for life in a civilized society.

    Cleaving to those aspects of their culture which cause no harm to another is all well and good. But to cling to traditions and values which lead to the harm of others is counter-productive and leads to nothing but discord, violence and even death.
