Anybody Have a Problem with This?

Chaplain Bill Chrystal, left, and Roberta Stewart carry a wreath symbolizing the Wiccan faith at the Veterans Cemetery in Fernley, Nev., in this Monday, May 29, 2006 file photo. The wreath was placed near the space reserved for a plaque dedicated to Stewart's husband Sgt. Patrick Stewart who was killed Sept. 25, 2005, while serving in Afghanistan.

Not me. We went to war in Afghanistan against a sect of religious fanatics who trained their howitzers on the symbols of other people's religions and blew them apart. This man died in that war. Here, the way our system works, he can be buried in the panoply of his faith. And yes, there had to be a lawsuit first. And it turned out as it should have. That's part of our system at work.

Now tell me again, Masters of Moral Equivalence, how American Christian fundamentalists and Taliban Islamic fundamentalists are pretty much exactly the same.
