Here’s a Brief Quiz

“Democracy demands that the religiously motivated translate their concerns into universal, rather than religion-specific, values,”

Who made the above statement and who was he speaking to?

  1. Islam
  2. Christianity
  3. Judaism
  4. Hinduism
  5. None of the above

And how likely is it that some of the above named world religions will heed this advice?

The second question is this:

Which is the definition of “to tolerate”?

  1. put up with something or somebody unpleasant
  2. to allow the presence of or allow (an activity)
  3. having to recognize and respect

Notice that none of the options involve an indidivual’s free choice?  Oh, and the often associated word with tolerance; respect?  Now that’s something earned not freely given.

Lastly, have you noticed the propensity of those proponents of the T&R words to be frequent users of the phrase “… I feel” rather than “… I think”.

Thanks!  That was your Culture Pop Quiz for the week.  I mean a lot can be written about using these two themes, but that’s up to you.  I just wanted to draw attention to the obvious absurdity of the Liberal world view.

  1. Our President made the first statement, and though I’m not sure I agree with it, I assumed he was speaking to everyone. The specific audience was at Saddleback, I think, but there’s no reason to assume he was speaking only to those who adhere to a particular faith or no faith.

    (You might want to read Newsweek’s issue on post-Christian America.)

    I would say that both 1 and 2 are arguably definitions of “tolerance.”

    I don’t really see the point of this, but I am happy to accept any prizes you’re offering!

    Actually I did read the Newsweek piece, and then went and looked up the survey details. Newsweek’s article is a bit misleading, but hey, they have an agenda to push, I understand.

    Look up the study details. The overall universe was over 54,000 which gives the findings some pretty good status. HOWEVER, some of the questions mixed into the Newsweek article had only a survey size of 1,000 – which in a population of ours, makes those results meaningless.

    I’d just like to see the Wahibbai’s subscribe to Obama’s quote. Islam is both a religion as well as a means of governance.

  3. Tolero a racistas pero no los respeto.
