Absolute princes and the Alberta human rights commission

Mark Milke Calgary Herald

“At base, this dispute is about the Western tradition of freedom of expression versus a fundamentalist orientation in which one’s God cannot be criticized, mocked, or displayed in a manner unbecoming to devout adherents. However offended some Muslims, Christians, Jews or others may feel on occasion, the proper response to verbal and visual hurt is to boycott or to debate, but never to ban, prosecute and gag. I’ll side with the longstanding Western tradition.”

The Rest.
