Carronade The Yankee Sailor Carronade

The Sea is a choosy mistress. She takes the men that come to her and weighs them and measures them. The ones she adores, she keeps; the ones she hates, she destroys. The rest she casts back to land. I count myself among the adored, for I am Her willing Captive.

I've relocated to a new Yankee Sailor.

Whatever Happened to "Do Unto Others?"

I ran across this picture of two Muslims in protest over the cartoons of Muhammad and my hypocrisy alarm went off. "Don't ridicule our faith?" and "Freedom is not 2 insult?"

Once again we have an illustration of how freedom to criticize is not a two way street in the Muslim mind. It's not okay for anyone to point out the deficiencies in their system of beliefs, but it's clearly okay for them to point out the systematic deficiencies in other religions. Take the article, The "God" that Never Was, for example.
