Walk me through this. Let's say you're out walking the dog, minding your own business, when two police cars pull up. Officers jump out, and approach you in a brusque, business-like manner. One says, "Sir, would you please raise your hands and place them on top of your head?"You have a carry gun in your inside jacket pocket. The cops are still about 15 feet away.What do you do?
Is it somewhat telling that there seems to be an increasing number of incident on U.S. soil committed by non-Middle Eastern muslims? There was also the grenade/firearms attack on Fort Dix a while back by Albanians or Bosnians... I guess maybe the Euros are paying back the Middle Easterners for volunteering to fight in their countries. Global jihad indeed.
And trigger finger exactly where it should be. I think anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of gun safety and any kind of objectivity would see this kid has been taught well by safety-conscious, law-abiding parents.
FAILED at para 4 for quoting that douche Tim Wise. God it's becoming increasingly embarassing to be a liberal...
That is interesting when paired with this:

What evidence is required other than this admission of gayness in order to charge the other party with a hate crime?
The mortal sin in many progressive circles is not inaction in the face of injustice, but action in a way that perpetrates injustice (as they see it). By telling Muslim women what's good for them, western feminists would be committing that mortal sin.
A bit late but I will reply anyway, because I think it's fundamental to the OP. Moral relativism is refusing to use one's own morality to frame the morality of other cultures, because morality is culture-specific and weighing the mores and moral code of others against your own is a form of imperialistic thinking. Interesting thought that it's almost always an indulgence of Westerners.
Moral relativism.
Thought Piobaire especially would enjoy this one: Anti-poverty success airbrushed out The experiment began in 1974. It was designed to test the concept of a guaranteed annual income in a small, fairly typical, community. Dauphin, a rural municipality of 13,000 midway between Winnipeg and Regina, was chosen at the behest of former Manitoba premier Ed Schreyer. The city’s low-income residents were lifted and kept out of poverty, using a negative income tax. (Canada Revenue...
