I too once held bleeding heart liberal views on human ‘rights’. Not so now … why the change?
there are NO human rights
I was told once that ‘Government is the system that takes away your Rights and gives some of them back as privileges‘. How free your system is can be measured by how many so-called Rights you have had returned.
DID ANYONE EVER
really have the ‘Right to Free Speech’?
No. (Although some do wax poetical about such being enshrined in their greatest Laws).
CERTAINLY IN ISLAM
every devotee has the absolute right to free speech and may freely discuss any topic he wishes without squads of rabid hit-men descending.
I imagine that (being common sourced) Judaism (and its other offspring, Christianity) hold sacred much the same inalienable human rights. In any of the Mosaic religions Freedom of Speech is the given. No?
It’s only non-Jewish and non-Islamic countries where you have to be careful about what you say; which is why I was so glad to see that at last the Mosaics are finally getting their acts together in the Land Of The Free.
Who knows, the Mosaics may eventually win and achieve the complete universal liberation of all LOTF folks …
Isn’t it wonderful, that all over the world we can sit at the feet of such wise and generous people, and absorb their wisdoms?
Among its initial “action items,” the press release said, will be to “develop a coordinated strategy to address anti-Muslim bigotry and anti-Semitism in the U.S.” and to “protect and expand the rights of religious minorities” in the country.
of my acquaintance judge people by what they do rather than what they say. I imagine that Americans do the same … so why any bigotry?
Could the answer then be to legislate against bigotry? In the name of Freedom Of Speech?
Don’t ask me—I may just say the wrong thing; I don’t want to be done for bigotry, brrrr.
And yes—some of that is sarcasm. You’ll have to use your judgement to figure it out; and always remember “Judge not, lest ye be judged”. Which means, don’t think.
Never think. Just accept what you are told and you too will be guaranteed an eternity of Bliss.
