21 12 11 - 05:46We see a problem, and then the lobbyists for that problem get in our faces, so we cave and grovel and pander, and the result are broad rules that miss the actual point:
The U.N. General Assembly on Monday adopted a resolution condemning the stereotyping, negative profiling and stigmatization of people based on their religion, and urging countries to take effective steps âto address and combat such incidents.â
No member state called for a recorded vote on the text, which was as a result adopted âby consensus.â - CNS
How much longer can the charade go on? We act as if all ideologies were the same, which is our way of saying that soon we'll make them the same. We take complex mixed elements and convert them all into the same flow of McDonald's, Coca-Cola, hippie ethics, pornography, political correctness and consumerism.
The basic statement of this resolution is "Tolerate all religions, so we can mix them all and thus destroy them." Only the fools think it means that their religion will be respected, but that's not even what they want. They want the ability to pull out the magic AH-HA! GOTCHA! card that calls the other party racist, sexist or worse, and thus lets the perceived victim get away with whatever they were doing. It's a get-out-of-jail-free card for parasites.
Overly broad rules fail for two reasons. First, they don't distinguish between the parasites and the honest religious people out there. Everyone gets a free pass. This will be most used by the dishonest. Second, they ignore that differences exist. If we were all the same religion, we wouldn't "need" such rules. By treating all as one, we force a gray norm where brilliant colors once stood.
