the irregular quote of the day

28 Nov

Mike Power on the arrest and charging of a Sudan-based British teacher, Gillian Gibbons [BBC], who allowed her charge to name a teddy bear – that’s right, a teddy bear – Mohammed.

Apart from anything else, this is a gift to bigots, which is, no doubt, why the Muslim Council were quick to condemn the actions of the Sudanese government. Having said that we musn’t allow fear of being labelled a bigot prevent us from calling this what it is – intolerant, stupid, religiously-justified persecution of a decent and good woman.

    Why be afraid of being labelled a bigot for attacking bigotry? Does it really matter WHAT other people call you? Don’t be so PC!
