Free Speech vs. Religious Dogma
By Glenn Woiceshyn (Herald News, Feb. 17, 2006; Irish Independent, Feb. 17, 2006; Progress-Index, VA, Feb. 19, 2006; Hawaii Reporter, Feb. 21, 2006)
Bravo to all the newspapers that published the Danish cartoons that many Muslims have responded to with violent riots. And shame on every newspaper that sacrificed the principle of free speech in the name of "sensitivity" to Islamic dogma.
The moral and practical response to the Muslim attack on free speech is for every newspaper of the free world to publish--as an act of solidarity and defiance--the Danish cartoons with the following message: "We proudly defend free speech against anyone who believes that their religion entitles them to suppress it."
