Idiots are not going to disappear in a free society and it is even a sign of our healthy tolerance that they thrive on the margins. Fringe types like the Koran burning preacher in Florida or the Internet atheist PZ Myers (whose pleas for attention includes desecrating religious symbols over the past few years), will keep using their freedom poorly, but that is the cost of freedom. Myers and the Koran burning preacher would probably both agree that I am the idiot for not applauding their courageous stand for "reason" or "revelation."
Part of freedom is having the power to be an idiot and the government not having the power to stop you. Part of being a good person is tolerating as much idiotic behavior as you possibly can. Christianity shows its strength when it puts up with PZ Myers and popular Islam should learn to do the same with the fools in Florida.
Do not assumebecause I post an extract of an article or link to it that I agree with it. I'm only blogspotting.
