Interesting Point

I was writing a few emails tonight while listening to After Hours with Cal Thomas on Fox News. He was sharing letters from viewers with comments about previous shows. One person wrote in and had an interesting point. I thought I'd share it because it so simply explained what has really bugged me about the left on issues of freedom of speech. Of course, I'm bothered by many more ideas coming from the left, just so I'm clear ;).

In short, the writer said the left tells conservatives to turn the channel if we find a TV show to be too violent or sexual - or not rent/see a movie. If it bothers us, we have the freedom to "look the other way" and not be offended.

At the same time, none on the left are willing to do the same when it comes to the Ten Commandments in a court house or a nativity scene in public places during the "winter holidays." Another example of the left's tolerance for others - don't dare refer to Christmas as Christmas, we must call it winter holidays.

To clarify, the writer gave two examples, but after thinking about all the ways the left tries to force America to conform to their beliefs and cease certain activities, the nativity scene example is mine. I couldn't recall past the Ten Commandments once I sat down to write this. You get the idea of the writer's point, though.

You see, conservatives are suppose to learn to be tolerant. The left is determined to teach us to be tolerant. However, liberals are the only group of people who should never be offended. They should never be asked to look the other way because they are tolerant of others. Well, as long as what they are asked to be tolerant of fits within their agenda. Otherwise, it's time to start the lawsuit machine to force the rest of us to be tolerant of their intolerance.

I'm so glad we've cleared that up; said dripping with sarcasm lol.
